It might not have done you any harm, but you really could be affecting their health by being so stubborn about it, especially with young ones.   The human body is not designed to be consistently in

Certainly considering it tonight, but need to get a pipe fixed before it can go on, so it's a blanket instead!

First time I've felt properly cold so far.

Had it on several times already.

 

Yes, me too, but I also have looked out my warm pjs and wooly jumpers.:oldlaugh:

We have a rule in the house to not put the heating on before November 1st or after March 31st unless it’s really cold, so no heating yet, although the house feels noticeably chilly, especially when it’s windy.

Hell no!  Me and my partner both have naturally high body temperatures, especially at night.  Plus we have a dog who likes to sleep under the covers with us so he keeps us toasty.  We love having windows open, even when it's cold outside.

The general rule in our house is to put on a jumper if you're cold!  The heating only comes on when daytime temperatures are below 10C or nights are below freezing - and even then it's only on for an hour in the early morning and an hour mid evening.

The only exception to the rule is if we have anyone elderly visiting or if anyone brings a baby round.  Neither of those situations arise very often so our heating bill is generally lower than the average.

Putting the heating on yesterday evening for an hour and the same thing a few days ago. All we have needed so far.

We have a rule or you have a rule? Out of interest what has the date got to do with it?

Good luck to you. Good way to ensure any guests don’t hang around. Must try it. 
Must admit I feel the cold more than I use to.  A lot of my time was spent outside and house seemed boiling when I got home.

Lol, it's a collective agreement. The date is really just a marker, that closest to the start and finish of GMT. Some years we've had to deviate a little bit - like last October, we put the heating on during the last five days which were cold, but then didn't need it on in the last week of Feb or March.
