It's that time of the year.
When are you going to start lighting up?

Having black walls all winter may be depressing, though I really like your idea. I live far north and we get few daylight hours in winter. So a balance needs to be found. Perhaps a return to the black wood furniture, which was all the rage some years ago, but flooded with colourful led lights when the sun goes down.

Yes another year has passed and the Brits still haven't overthrown their overlords , the royalty and aristocracy, who own most of the land and live in centrally heated castles .... so it's down to Lidle to stock up on tea lights and flowerpots.

some background info for non Brits ...Here's a typical row of houses in the UK



People jammed together like sardines.... not much room inside .... in days gone by heating was allowed, but to stop people chocking to death in the smog , fires were banned ... Now, in secret people huddle together around flower pots heated by candles , to stop from freezing to death ... in constant fear of a knock on the door from the global warming police who say candles emit CO2 a green house gas ..

Taking the p*** out of the Brits oz! because some people are packed into rows of houses! and don't have much money!

If only we could share you infinite wisdom of how to free ourselves from the Satanic Psychos running things!

Maybe we could move to Iceland and have a nice little igloo to live in!

It doesn't make him a racist cos he is British.
He just happened to live elsewhere.

We've already discussed the issue of creating a truther's paradise island on DIF and it failed at the brain storm session stage.

I'm a Brit myself , J .... and grew up in one of those houses , now I've escaped, looking back , it all seems so surreal and funny/sad ...

At least it's not cold where I am, that's the main reason I left.

Safe ??? It's all safe ... humans have lived without heating for thousands of years ....It toughens you up ...

17 is plenty warm enough ... The ideal comfortable temperature is said to be 25

I hate wearing cloths , never do inside , it's not natural , never gets below 23 here. (inside temp)

Thanks for your advice Oz, however you do live in a tropical climate.

I'm looking for any advice from someone closer to home, preferably in Blighty. I am facing real hardship this winter and am looking for practical advice on clothing, tips and minimal temperatures I can get away with.

Thanks.

Here is the principle: a container, like a 2-inch-tall bread tin, has tealight candles in the center. An upside-down pot rests on the container over the candles. A larger upside-down flower pot rests over the first container. This pot has a hole in its bottom.

The inner pot acts like a furnace, storing the hot air above the candles and it will get too hot to touch. Hot air escapes underneath it which then rises inside the outer pot. All that's needed are enough candles and a part of the room you don't normally go to. You could even build a shelf for it or get a small table. Have a container of water nearby just in case.

In my 11x10-foot room I tried 3 and 4 candles & that seems enough for most winter days.

Most tealights last 4 hours. In the UK the cheapest place to get them is the Ikea.com Web site.

I've more than halved my fuel cost.

(Some people are concerned about the toxic fumes from candles. Why not make you own beeswax tealight candles? Use one alongside the standard tealights & it will destroy its toxins (and dust) through the production of negative ions. Get filtered wax, which means impurities have been removed. A sturdier wick is needed than those used for standard paraffin candles.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H80k83xJ28E )
This does work. Just make sure that no kids are around. Most tealight candles are made from soy so there arent dangerous fumes to worry about.

Really thick curtains might help. Maybe get some atteactive blanketing from a charity store or window film to stop the heat escaping. Attend to draughts and keep the doors closed to other rooms too.

Excellent advice, things I hadn't though of.

When it gets 15C, even 2 degrees difference, I need to light up.
At 12C, very cold. A jacket on, gloves on....
But this is how they do it in China, it's norm over there.

I've bought thermal vests, and I'm getting a thick winter duvet. I think that's about the best I can do really. The heating is set at 14C at the moment.

You can use a bin bag if short of money.

Steppe will show you HOW TO exactly.

At height of winter Paddy , take your duvet to main room in the evenings and go to bed early.

Going to bed early, does not mean you don't do anything., you just do it all from the comfort of the warm bed. ie Bed picnics.

winter hobbies - I used to make my patchwork quilts in the winter, lots of extra fabric over you whilst you sew. Keeps you toasty.

I heard 21C is a comfortable room temperature which I find true but I prefer it a bit cooler around 16C - 19C.

On the Coast it tends to be quite mild mainly but I know how cold it can get in Northern parts. I was in Edinburgh one winter! Brrrrrrrrr very cold but very nice too!

I prefer colder to hot climates. I just turn into a mozzie magnet when it's hot! I like it when the cold weather zaps 'em to oblivion (the mozzies that is) But, they always return!

Also some warm custard or porridge (porridge has depression/lack of sunlight benefits) to eat on cold evenings for supper. I used to favour custard for evenings, milky and sweet...kind of indulgent. A full stomach creates inner heat!
