How to keep warm and cosy this Autumn

  •  Never underestimate the power of a simple vest and layering with thin clothes will keep you warmer than one big jumper
  •  Cosy slippers help a lot!
  •  A walk or a scoot outside will make inside feel toasty and a dance around the kitchen will soon warm them up!
  • Hot dinners like beans and soup and porridge for breakfast all work a treat.
  • Spread rugs over wooden floors
  • You could even make a snake draught excluder from old tights and googly eyes!
  • Cuddles and stories under a blanket are just lovely for keeping warm
  • Open blinds on south facing windows during the day to let in the sun and close blinds at night and curtains to keep in the warmth
  • Get out those gloves and hats they make loads of difference
  • Fill all the gaps around your windows and doors

According to the Telegraph

‘….the single most cost-effective thing you can do to keep warm and cut fuel bills …is to draught-proof your windows and external doors. Ten quid’s worth of self-adhesive draught stripping will pay for itself in a   couple of weeks. Feel for draughts with the back of your hand, and if you’ve   got a particularly wide gap, (e.g. at the corner of a warped window) stick one piece of draught strip on top of another until you’ve filled it

I found this Draught Excluder tape at Amazon for just over £5 – one of lots of great ways how to keep warm in autumn

Hope you are keeping cosy!

    Great advice! We have the beds piled with loads of quilts and blankets and take hot water bottles to bed in the winter!

    Hadn’t seen this when I posted on the other thread Becky….. we love hot water bottles and wheat bags in the microwave. Trying not to turn on the heating until November….. doing well so far 😉

    Yes I agree. Layering is the best. Don’t wear cotton socks or clothes against your skin they will make you even more cold. I wear wool or man made material which insulate better.

    Our heating is knackered old storage heaters so we are chilly even when it is on- however we having lived here a while we know how do deal with it, layering and a big hoards of blankets on the back of all the chairs for when we need them!

    I love posts like these that are good for the environment and keep costs down! I grew up in a 16th century pub that didn’t have central heating. We had two open fires downstairs and a gas fire upstairs and that was it. I don’t remember being cold… I hate too much central heating nowadays, perhaps that’s why! 😀

    Totally with you on this – jumpers out – fluffy socks on and damn the heating! (although maybe put it on for a little bit while I’m in the bath!)

    obviously like your website but you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Several of them are rife with spelling issues and
    I in finding it very troublesome to tell the reality then again I will certainly come back
    again.
