Don't worry...Christmas music doesn't get turned on in this house until November 25th.
What should be turned on soon? HEAT.
We have this rule - seeing as heat goes right through this house - that we don't turn on the heat until the 1st of November. We made it to the 30th of October last year... those downstairs girls are troopers. It's seriously amazing: we get pretty chilly upstairs, but nothing a big cup of tea or mug of coffee, slippers, and a blanket can't fix. Downstairs, however, the girls will be studying with wool socks, sweatpants, sweatshirts, sleeping bags, mittens and hats on!
Let's pray this winter we'll be warmer....if the construction. ever. ends.
Our kitchen chalkboard last February. That's $60.25 per person. For one month of heat.
We told you our house was a sieve...
