Yesterday it rained all day while I was in at work in the lab at 23C+-0.5C   :)
Today it's forecast to be dry all day while I work on my sailing boat outside   :)

I must admit I don't like those mobile gas fires,  they put out a gallon of water into the air for each canister of gas used,  in a shed that's a huge amount of humidity  affecting track and scenery..  It's humid enough here between the Norfolk Broads and the sea.
Electric heating for me,  eventually a reversible air-conditioning unit for the cost of 3 locos

Right, my furry friend is staring at me,  time for stroll round the garden :)

There are worse ways to go, I believe.
Let's face it, I use the CH as and when I need it so to be paid extra is just a Brucie Bonus. Even if I put the allowance towards the heating it still releases equivalent funds for something else ;D

I don't understand a word of that, but I'm sure UK folk do.

Good luck with it, Mick!  :beers:

I thought that when it became available but having just spent a bit over 500 on 1000 litres of oil (50 or so more than last time), my 200 will have to go back into the Staying Warm fund when we need a top up in March.
