    Just wondering if you have put your heating on yet or if your still holding off! I haven't put mine on yet - i'm hoping to wait till after we get our next quarterly bill (mid nov) but it's quite chilly tonight! Normally always have my bedroom window open but don't think that will be happening now lol. We have only been in this house since March and never had the heating on so worried about a big gas bill! The joys of being a grown up lol :blush:

    Yes funny you should mention it I had to put it on this morning it was freezing! I think that's why Lo has been waking a bit earlier in the mornings. Anything that will get me a few minutes extra sleep is good!

    I have my hearing on all year round lol not all day but atleast a couple of hours a day. I thought that was normal lol I grew up In a house that was roasting and my parents still have the heating on most of the day so I guess I'm just used to it. I'm a naturally cold person aswell

    Not yet, but will do November/December. It was actually sunny today and because I have huge glass windows the sun heats my house up loads! It's not actually cold enough for heating yet.

    I put it on for an hour today - mostly to help dry some washing. It is definitely getting chilly now though!

    I had it set to come on twice in the night for an hour a time a few weeks ago but then switched it back off when it got warmer again.
    I put it back on last night again to come on the same times and I've put it on for an hour twice today when I was really cold

    Yes, it's freezing down in the south east corner with the north winds!

    I don't have it on unless it's chilly.

    Wow, I wish I lived where you guys lived. :)

    I hate the heat and love the cold. We still have our AC on in the day and only opened the windows the last 2 nights because it has been too hot to have them open, lol.

    When I visited my sister last year I was sooo happy because it was actually cold outside! I think we wore coats 3 times last year and LO has never seen snow (and won't unless we move, lol).

    Yesterday it started to get really cold. Haven't put the heating on yet. LO's room gets REALLY hot when the heating is on because the boiler is in her room so I may turn her radiator off if the heating goes on, so long as her room is warm.

    It came on at the beginning of the month (I don't control when it comes on, its set for the whole apartment building). Glad it came on though, was starting to get really cold! I have all the radiators at full blast (they are old and crappy so don't give out much heat)
