It's like autumn here!

    Heating on as Hubs is cold even though he has a blanket around him. I have a T-shirt on and flip flops.

    All my money saving efforts will be eaten up quickly through our heating bill!

    I am in a long-sleeved top, cardigan and woolly slippers. It felt warmer this morning. Since the rain has set in, it has been chilly.

    Raining and windy here. Still our garden mole is happy piling up lots of hills for me to rake out.

    Much warmer today than it was on Wednesday, when i fleetingly did consider putting the heating on.
    ETA: The autumnal smell is in the air now, and the light quality has changed

    I would be the same with no heating on!

    I’ve given in and just changed into winter clothes. I’ve dug out my fleecy blanket and we’ve put the heating on. Feeling quite toasty now.

    Get him to move. Doing some ironing would soon warm him up.

    Um, I think he might be too ill for that.

    Sorry. I don't know the poster and their background.

    Autumn is definitely on its way. Two indications are:
    • I am wearing a vest
    • I heard a flock of geese flying overhead (didn't get to the window in time to see them, though)
    My daughter is having a barbecue tomorrow...

    For back from a stay in London on Weds. Noticed the temperature drop up North. Resorted to fleeces. I usually don't feel the cold but am chilled to the bone and put heating on an hour a go.

    Thank goodness I'm going on holiday to a much warmer place soon.

    I've put a cardigan on but I don't think it's heating weather.

    Someone had a bonfire (probably burning garden waste) this morning before it started raining. That makes me think of autumn!

    Our heating came on yesterday morning...I obviously hadn't set the minimum temperature low enough to stop that happening!

    The living room temperature is still registering a balmy 21 degrees - but I'm in fleece, long trousers, socks & slippers and still feeling chilly, something I rarely do.

    I was out walking in the rain earlier, and it wasn't cold, just wet. It must be the dampness which makes it feel so cold.

    I've just put the heating on. Nooooo!

    It’s rained all day here. I went into town this afternoon and came home with sodden feet and ruined shoes. I’ve never seen so many people walking round a city centre in wellies. (Sensible people, I wish I’d thought to do that)

    Other thing I have noticed more than anything is how early it now is getting dark. A few weeks ago you could go for an evening walk until 9:30 pm. Now it is dark around here about 8: 40 pm or so.

    I hate that, especially when you know it is getting worse day by day...

    Tidal (the poster) used to start a thread every year (on the 21st of June) to mark the 'inexorable decline to darkness' or some such words.
    But, yeah, asides from missing Tidal, I'm really noticing the 'nights fair drawin' in'.
