I know here in Cardiff it is no where near as cold as Vienna which is 2 degrees (today it is warmer in Voronzeh than Vienna Anastasia at 3 degrees)but it certainly feels like it(.I wish it was as warm as Panama City in Florida which is 21 degrees or Damascus in Syria which is 18 degrees today.My skin would burn in that kind of heat!
This morning I am dressed like Whoopie Goldberg in Jumpin Jack Flash when her central heating isn't working. I am wearing socks, leg warmers,tracksuit bottoms, t shirt, my huge beige jumper(which is now 13 years old and has been worn every winter and by everybody) and my mothers large polar bear dressing gown. I am keeping the heating on during the day at the moment because Beauty is not well with a really bad cold and so she is home from school, my bill will be sky high in January as usually when I am home on my own in the day it is only on for short bursts. It must be really awful for older people and people on very limited incomes ,especially with the financial situation.
