I knew when we first moved in our new home that it would be colder than in our old house where it was always snug and cozy. In the winter, friends who’d visit would always comment on how warm our house was as soon as they entered. We lived in a terraced house back then, that’s why. Now we live in a detached house with no neighbours. In spite the central heating, and two fires in the kitchen and living room, I’m still cold all the bloody time. To be fair though, both fires aren’t on all the time. We only put them on when we’re using the rooms. What’s the point in wasting the fire if there isn’t anyone in? Sometimes I think we only heat the rooms for our pets. Thank goodness for wooly socks. I love them.
In spite the cold, T still complains that she’s feeling warm. What’s it with these kids? When it’s cold, they complain about being warm. I can understand when they’re running around like loonies, of course all that energy burnt will keep them warm, but at night? Apparently, T isn’t the only one, a few of my mum friends commented that their little ones are exactly the same.
And speaking of the cold, I’m noticing mold have started to show up in some of our walls and ceilings. I try to wipe them off as soon as I notice them, but before long, they are there again. Sigh.
I think I’m slowly getting into the Christmas spirit. We’re going away in the first weekend of December, so my husband said that it would be okay to start decorating this weekend. Normally, I’d do the dance of joy, but he was surprised when all he got was an “Oh okay”.
I’m hoping to be able to drop by our favourite garden centre after T’s ballet on Saturday. They have a fabulous Christmas display and items. I’m sure that will do the trick.
What about you?
Any exciting plans this week?
