We had a considerable frost this morning, de-icer just doesnt cut it, you need a scraper and plenty of elbow grease. It appears that winter has finally stepped in through the door and made itself comfortable. We are managing at the moment to have the heating on for an hour in the morning and a hour in the evening. Even when it has gone off, the house remains warm for at least an hour afterwards. I suspect that if the weather becomes colder, then we will have to have the heating on for longer. Last year, I was turning the heating on without thinking about the impact on the cost/bill. I hoping this year, it will be a lot less! Bar a couple of bits, I have got all our christmas presents and these have all been either second-hand or the best deal I can find. We have slashed our budget for christmas presents, which I'm really pleased about.
