Stream of Consciousness Saturday

23 October: Once, well actually it’s happened before, winter’s early bite sunk its cold into my hands and feet. It’s Saturday, although the day doesn’t make much difference, however I suspect the weather took its turn Friday night because for most of that day I’d not turned the heating on, although I did hit the Boost button for an hour that morning, and because the pipes bang like a prisoner with a tin cup, there’s no denying that I’d hit the Boost button, thereby burning money, at least that was the unspoken accusation. It’s that look; his looks speak volumes. Four, I told him I’m wearing four layers. See? I showed him each one, right down to my pale wintery skin.  Maybe you’d like to buy me a thick parka and a pair of furry mukluks for Christmas, which I considered saying but didn’t because sarcasm is really a waste of frosty breath.

  1. I agree. Four layers and still cold warrants some money burning! 🙂 We used to have this little gas furnace to heat our house (and no insulation). You had to stand within a metre of it to really notice its warmth and, as we discovered, it was 4 degrees warmer at ceiling height than on the floor. That’s when we began our great insulation journey. And we’ve also got a more efficient heating system too. Australian houses are only just beginning the road to improvement as far as temperature comfort goes. Most are like heating a river.

  3. We’ll go for a walk. Me in t-shirt, maybe a cardigan if it’s chilly. Mrs H will have two jumpers, a coat, bobble hat and gloves, and it is still only October 🤣🤣 Maybe you need personal boost buttons!


    1. We have this smart “Hive” thing, and I need to reread the instructions every time I want to warm up. Life was easier when you threw another log on the fire, but you’re not allowed to do that anymore. 😂
