While Mum was poorly some heating was installed into the house. My sister asked me to broach the subject of having the heating back on when we have visitors.
AS I was sitting at the table enjoying some supper with my father, both of us in our coats and scarfs I asked Dad the question ‘can we have the heating on when we have visitors’.
My father informs me that the heating IS on and is on 24/7 as it is more economical that way.
Excellent said I and we continued our meal. The fact that we were both sitting there in our outdoor coats, two pairs of trousers and a scarf didn't seem to matter. We carried on our meal both marvelling at how lucky we were - if the heating wasn't on I expect we would have trouble picking up the cutlery due to the volume of clothes being worn to keep warm.
