It is only the second of October. At this time of year, I am usually still wearing shorts, have the windows wide open, and wouldn’t dream of putting on the central heating.
But this October has begun more like winter than autumn, and I woke up feeling cold this morning.
After wrapping up well, I still didn’t feel right, and sitting at the PC earlier today I could feel the cold creeping into me.
At 11 am, I surrendered to the inevitable, and put the heating thermostat up to 20 C.
If it carries on like this, it is going to feel like a long winter indeed.
