Chill In The Air

Due soon, Autumn and Winter

This first week in September has brought down to Earth, that it will be getting to Winter soon. The cold breeze in the air has made me start to think about getting cosy for the cold months. 

I hate winter and so also make sure to wrap up warm and the boys will always have at least 3 layers on whilst going out of the house. 

But what about indoors? 

We all know about the rising prices of gas and electric so using radiators and heaters all the time can be very costly. That's why, I'm starting to look at ways of keeping warm without using the utilities. 

For bed, thermal blankets or even heated blankets can be great for making the beds toasty and warm so it's easier to just jump into at bedtime, although electric blankets do cost to run so trying hot water bottles may be a better option. Wearing thick quilted pyjamas and sleeping under a nice thick duvet are also a must for children as the amount of illnesses rise at this time of year so keeping them wrapped up at bedtime is a must.

Also try to make your surroundings look more comfy and cosy. My parents used to decorate our bedroom every winter with warmer colours which, as silly as it sounds, did actually work to make to room feel cosier. Having a nice thick, plush carpet keeps rooms warmer or baby sheepskin rugs which will feel lovely and warm between the toes. 

Then there are things you can actually do indoors to keep warm, activities and such. Hide and seek, running around the house and dance competitions will get the heart racing and the body warm. 
Baking yummy buns and cakes will not only keep the house warm but you get to eat them too, result!

You see with these tips you don't need to have the heating on to be warm in the house. What will you be doing to keep warm in the winter months?

  5. It might be old fashioned but you can't beat thermal underwear, just putting a short sleeved thermal vest on makes a lot of difference to how warm you feel. I think that ours will be coming out of the cupboards and drawers pretty soon.

  6. A glass of wine seems to do it for me, suffer from hot feet after drinking wine.

  7. Great idea about making the room look cosy, we light lots of little candles, for some reason it gives the impression of warmth.
