Christmas Is Gone But Winter Isn’t! Staying Warm In The Last Few Weeks Of Winter
Well. Christmas is done and dusted. No more is the season of rushing around to get presents before the 25th, and the queues in all sorts of shops are bound to at least get somewhat tamer. However, that does not mean that the winter season is over, if anything, it is far from it. Probably for another month or so we are going to see some less than mild weather, with the temperature dropping below 10 degrees Celsius and some seriously hostile British winds. If you are like most people, you probably can’t wait for the spring, and in the meantime, you’re freezing your digits off while waiting at the bus stop, but it really doesn’t have to be that way. Since British winters aren’t anywhere near as savage as let’s say, Polish winters, people often aren’t physically or mentally prepared for it. To prevent that, let’s look at what you can do to last out these colder winter days before the spring finally blesses us with its presence.
Staying warm at home sweet home
You might think to yourself, why would you need advice on how to stay warm at home, if you all you need to do is just crank up the heating? And while that is practically true, it is also practically extremely draining on your wallet. Not to mention, having the heating on all the time ends up with your house feeling rather dry if you do not have a humidifier running, especially if you have a heated floor. Now, do not misunderstand, you do not need to stop the heating on entirely, but getting fuel for it somewhere cheaper like Tonbridge Fuels certainly wouldn’t hurt. Other than that, you can start getting some things fixed that have been put on the backlog for the past year. Finding out where that one draft near the kitchen is coming from, why is the floor always really cold in the corridor, why is that one bit of mould growing in the bathroom. You get the idea, by the time you are done with all of those, the house should feel much comfier and pleasant compared to the solid ice flooring that you experience when you get out of bed in the morning.
Staying warm out and about
Of course, the good ol’ “just pile on more and more layers” method usually works, but that also usually leaves you feeling like a snowman and walking around like you are carrying watermelons under your arms. Not to mention, more laundry to take care of later on. Rather than piling on ridiculous amounts of layers, why not just invest in some proper winter clothing and a few pairs of good socks? Getting a nice winter coat, or jacket followed by a nostalgic woolly sweater is sure to keep you warm and stylish. While you’re at it, why not invest in a pair of gloves to not dread having to get your oyster card out of your bag or pocket when you’re getting on the bus? That followed by a long quality scarf and you’re set, completely prepared to take on the cold outside world.
