You got a polar Buff at York, what more do you need?
was thinking I might try a headscarf if I go out this weekend.  I think I have a pink flowery one somewhere.
I have cheered up with the thought that even if I still had my lined woollen trousers they would have worn out my now.  Maybe I should make some more.

I've just switched the heating on at work. It is actually putting out some heat, which is a nice surprise. I was worried I'd have to find something to do that got the laptop CPUs working a bit harder.

WFH, waiting for the boiler engineer to come and look at the boiler, glad it's not as cold today as it's been the last couple of weeks but just put a fleece on.
The bedroom is nice and toasty now from the heat coming out of the dehumidifier (I wanted to dry it out a bit before I tackle the mould on the window with a bit of bleach) but it's too noisy on full blast to work in there.
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

So warm today that I've turned the heating off again. Should probably have done it last night.
The unwilling rider and the one who leaves each control in turn without reluctance, with no desire to come back, obviously cannot be making the same journey, even though their brevets are identical.

+1 warm here too. forecast says above 10oC next 5-7 days, so I seems like I can wait to turn the heating on until sometime next week  :thumbsup:

Not quite a year later and the heating's on again already. 13 degrees at 9am yesterday, I've winterised the kitchen (blocked the silly humonguous air vents) so it's quite a bit warmer now.

I don't switch my heating off. My thermostat works fine and time switches mean the heating warms the place at the right times whatever the calendar shows.
I had warm radiators on some chilly mornings of the 'summer' that's just past.

likewise.

It's never fully 'off'.   It can magically sense when it needs to come on.  It's called a 'Thermostat'.

We turned ours on at half term. Then realised that 18 degrees was way too hot so turned it down to 16.

Promptly went to stay with friends whose wood burner made their living room 25 degrees.  :facepalm:

Indeed.

Though today, for the first time this year, I stopped on a ride 10k from home and turned the heating on manually so the bathroom would be a sensible temperature when I got in.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Good grief, near end of May and I just wimped out and put the heating on.

The heating goes on automatically during low temperatures. Working just fine, right now.

Wrap up warm.
The heating at work went on automatically this afternoon.
The heating at home went on manually this evening.

In a cavalier fashion, I'd turned the thermostat down too low, for the onset of Summer  ::-) it seems.  So it needed a tweak up tonight.

this time of year always causes me angst;

having a combi-boiler I have no cylinder in the airing cupboard; so have installed a tiny rad to do the same job all year round. Also have a heated towel rail in the bathroom. At an appointed time I set the heating to come on for a couple of hours a day just to heat the above (TRVs stop any of the other rads coming on)

still waiting for that appointed time....

I did think about putting the heating on last night. Then I remembered the recent electricity bill. However, the heating is gas! But instead, I shut the little vent thingies on the bedroom windows. TBH, this place is always cold, even in the middle of a hot summer.
