Balmy times

The balmy weather keeps on coming! Good thing too as I have yet to get a supply of wood (brownie points for the carboon neutral fuel) and solid fuel ( brownie points instantly cancelled!) for the stove that serves as the source of No. 67's central heating. I reckon that I don't need to start up the fire until its below 14C.... but then I stand accused of being an aesthete by those who know me well enough (thanks Jim!). I think this is the result of many years of living with limited income mixed with a puritanical dislike of debt! Where did I get that from? .... anyhow, central heating at the push of a button would be great but won't be coming to this house for a while! An extra layer does the job and the computer pumps out some heat which keeps the frost off.
