    Stay warm unless you are Machka who likes to stay cool ;)

    I like it when it is hot outside! I am comfortable in outside heat ... but not comfortable in indoors heat. I'm guessing that's because there's wind outside and I don't feel closed in.

    Tracey not use electric heaters with those temps? :noway:

    I imagine most people will use furnaces.

    Electric heaters are expensive (on the power bill) and can be a fire hazard.

    Margaret - I add my thoughts to all of the others on here. I will be thinking of you, and send my love. <3

    Rosemarie- I'm not surprised you are a bit hyped up by the Take Your House Back day. It must have been pretty intense! I'm interested in how it worked,and the 'live' aspect of it. Do you know how many people participated? You have made an excellent start it seems, and you can be proud of yourself and reward yourself with a rest and indulgence. Why not have a 'duvet day'? :D<3<3 I'm a great fan of those.
    Yes, the onion metaphor is great and no one can go full on for ever. Nor should you. Once you have made that first pass, it can be a little at a time. I do mini 5 minute bursts which can be very satisfying. Five minutes is enough for a drawer, or a surface.
    You are doing so well. Congratulations!

    In fact, I have just woken up from an extra sleep, which I rarely do, but my legs were so achy last night, I didn't get to sleep until gone 3 am. I woke at 6.30. Felt sick with exhaustion. Edie is coming at 11.30, so I had breakfast, did my rowing, and then took myself to bed again. Slept from 9 until 10.10. Phew!
    These leg ache things come and go. At the moment, it's bad at night, but fine in the day. I go through phases when I don't have it. I hate when it keeps me awake. I suspect it's a flare up of Sjögrens syndrome. My eyes are very gritty at the moment too. Sometimes I get showers of dry skin on my legs.

    Edie will take my mind off any troubles. :p I bought some plastic stands to display my books better in my top bedroom, but I've put them away as she is mega curious. I don't want her reading them at her age! She might come upstairs with me to look at photographs. When the kids stay the night I always put the adult books away. They love reading my children’s books though. :-)

    Well, up and at'em.

    Love Heather UK xxxxxxxx

    Heather: 🥰 duvet days. When I don’t have a group in the mornings I often take myself back to bed after I do my morning workout. I can read and write there just as well as up and about.

    For the most part, I don't think I would be worried about children seeing my books. My collection is divided almost equally in two. Non-fiction and Fiction.

    The Non-fiction section has a range of material across the Dewey Decimal categories from the 100+ courses I have taken in a wide variety of subjects.

    The Fiction section is largely G, PG, or PG13 rated material with just a few venturing into the somewhat more racy end of things.

    Margaret - I’m so sorry. My prayers are with you. Hugs to you. Spoil yourself as much as you can as you process the loss. I’m glad it was peaceful for both of you.

    Hugs and prayers,
