I can not stand the cold. Especially at a time when the calendar can still sunbathe on the beach. Imagine only – as early as September 19 (by the way, today Mikhailov Miracle – do not make a big deal), and the temperature a day rises a little above the mark of 10 degrees. About the night, I generally keep quiet. You have to sleep in a sweater and under a duvet.
By the way, you noticed that it began to darken much earlier than usual. And dawn later. This should not be in September. I used to meet such cold dawns, smoking on the balcony, somewhere in late October, if not later. And now you wake up in the morning and it is not clear whether it is still night or overcast on the street. A terrible feeling.
How to deal with the cold while there is no heating
They say the heating season this year will begin much later than usual. Disgusting. We have to take all the available measures in order not to turn into an icicle in your own home. The child has just got sick, and begins to sniff again, because it’s a little warmer outside than in the apartment now.
It is necessary to wear a warm sweater at home, warm slippers. I would rather wear light gloves (by the way, she did just that last year – she walked around the apartment in mittens, because hands froze unmercifully, by the way, somehow I will tell you how I knitted these mitts).
Son specifically bought warm slippers. So what if they are girly purple-pink. There were no others, but the legs of my offspring are not cold. And still all home clothes smoothly passed from the category of t-shirts and shorts to warm sweaters, sweaters and sweatpants.
I keep silent about myself – I look like an onion in a sweater, sweatpants and a warm biké robe.
Plus, the clothes had to slightly modify the space of the apartment. The hostess of the house immediately warned that in the winter in the kitchen, the window and the balcony door were covered with warm blankets, because the frames were old and the wind through them, as if through a sieve. She lived in total darkness all winter.
I decided to improve these measures a little. Instead of a blanket, a thick oilcloth was useful. First she closed the balcony opening from the outside, and then she tightened it with oilcloth from the kitchen side. At the same time, all the cracks were additionally clogged with cotton (almost two large packs were left) and left a very large gap of oilcloth, which passes from the frame to the escarpment.
The whole thing was stuck / nailed by a construction stapler (amazing thing, my soul stuck with it). Now the kitchen is pretty light and no drafts. I am almost happy.
The same had to be done with the window in the room. She also moved the sofa in such a way that it was as close as possible to the batteries. Even the hood in the bathroom sealed with oilcloth, so that no drafts in the apartment was not. I hope we will not die of cold in winter.
The same thing happens in kindergarten. Now instead of T-shirts and T-shirts you need to bring sweaters with long sleeves, pants, sweaters.
And how do you warm for the winter? Maybe even something useful tell me?
