You wake up all snuggly and warm but with that dreaded feeling of needing the loo, you put on foot out and instantly met with the cold doing more than nipping at your toes, more like munching its way straight through your feet and up your leg. You quickly put your leg back under the covers hoping that your bladder will magically stop its need to empty. Getting dressed under covers, having to have VERY quick washing and not really caring that you have worn the same clothes, in many many layers, for a few days because its better than having to get changed in the cold and at least it is less washing to have to worry about cleaning let a lone getting them dry. You wish there was some way to have a fire inside because you can not sit on the outside fire which would be the only way to keep warm in the evening without having to be in the cocoon of blankets you wear during the day.
I do not like camping for these reasons (that in there isn’t a real toilet in the tent) and what I do not like even more is when It is coming to winter and I have to do this in my home. It is like this every year until about we decide enough is enough and cave into putting the heating on. Gas costs a lot we all know this and when your house isn’t as insulated as much as you would like it to be then it costs even more. I am also making more of an effort to cut down on my gas consumption as it isn’t sustainable where as my electricity is. Heating is the only issue, I’d love for the council to get rid of my back boiler and let me open up my fire place and get it back up and running. That isn’t going to happen either.
Last year I did manage really well with our version of the plant pot heater and so I think this year we are going to do it more and actually go out and buy new pots!! but it is cheaper than putting the gas on
ohhhhh disclaimer …… yes i am actually writing one, which is unlike me at all but thought one will not hurt!! lol
No this isn’t a post for sympathy (have been getting a lot of negative feedback on social media at the moment from people who seem to think I post for attention seeking reasons and then feel they have the right to pass judgment on me) I post because I like sharing my life with the world and be part of a global community. One which I love as we all help each other out with support and friendship. I also like the idea of some how helping anthologists out.
