Hi everyone, I'm sure I'm not the only one who was freezing yesterday with the cold and wet day that we had. I reluctantly put the central heating on and sat in front of my halogen fire (which only warms my feet), plus I had a hot water bottle and sat with loads of layers of clothes on. Eventually I got so hot that I felt ill, like I had flu, and was only comfortable later in bed, feeling just right at last. It has made me really fear the winter as I can't seem to move around much when it's cold, and sitting around all day long makes me feel worse. I can understand Brits moving abroad for half the year to avoid our winter, but i can't do that! I am thinking of buying a freestanding electric fire that will warm up parts of the room that the radiator doesn't seem to, and also maybe a light box to brighten up the house when it's so dark outside, but I don't want anything too bright as that will hurt my eyes. Can anyone give me any tips on how you mange the cold and dull wintry days, and also any advice on how you get through our long winters? Mary
