@Mickyboy hi yes it is starting to get quite cold. If you are sitting down and not moving around, how about filling a hot water bottle and putting a throw over you too. Lots of hot drinks, you could make a flask up save you boiling kettle to much and using the electric.

Maybe a fleece type top. If it’s really cold a hood or hat till your heating comes on. Hope this helps or someone might have better ideas. Best regards Loraine

I have portable oil filled radiators so I can just heat the room I am in. At the moment I am only using gas central heating early and late when I am dressing/undressing etc. Electric price didn’t go up as much as gas and my government energy grant goes on to my electricity smart meter.

@Mickyboy i try & keep moving if I can as it takes mind off feeling cold.

But if you’re sitting down then a blanket, hot water bottle, extra layers, thick socks, fluffy slippers. @Loshy & @sunnyday have mentioned some good ideas too.

@Mickyboy I was watching this week’s Martin Lewis Show and they were discussing this under “Heat the person not the home”. They suggested lots of useful ideas that cost pence to run and not much to purchase e.g. heated gloves, heated foot warmers, heated gilet, Warmie bean bags to microwave, hot water blanket under a sleeping bag. They also said (if you are able to get out) that there are lots of Warm Banks like libraries being set up where you can go to get warm. Hope that helps. Marie
