The last two days I have noticed a real change in the weather. The morning air on Sunday had a smell of autumn to it (if you have any idea what I'm talking about). I felt quite excited that Sunday morning because I thought, ooh autumn's here.
I love autumn, it's my favourite season. The warm days, cool nights, harvest time, trees changing colour, dark nights drawing in and snuggling in the house under blankets on the sofa watching TV. I love the change in meals from light summer food to warming hearty stews and home made hot puddings. I love the clearing of the garden and preparing it for next spring with bulb planting.
For the last two days I have felt quite chilly around the house so I have worn a fleece. The house would most probably have been warm enough if I had shut the back door but I like to leave it open all day so the dog can keep going in the garden. I see me having to close it soon though. When you think about it, today is only a day away from the last day of August and we should be basking in late summer sun still. I refuse to have any heating on in the house yet. We watched a film last night and I was chilly so wore my really thick winter dressing gown and soon felt lovely and warm. Fuel is way too expensive at the moment to have the heating on this early.
Hubby changed our gas & electric suppliers the other month and today we received a cheque from our old supplier for £92 which was owed back to us. Tomorrow I am going to ring a double glazing firm who gave us a quote for a damaged window http://frugalinyorkshire.blogspot.com/2011/06/just-short-post-today.html to come and do the work. Easy come, easy go. Bye bye £92.
Have any of you succumbed to turning the heating on yet?
Bye for now.
