Feeling cold…

Our government has told us to open our windows to ventilate the rooms and reduce covid virus. But instead of opening a window in our living room my hubby just told me he’d had our bedroom window open all afternoon! I’ve been sitting here in two jumpers and my coat and thinking the central heating wasn’t working properly! I tried to explain that as we have the radiator on in there and it’s under the window it means we are just heating the outside atmosphere! I feel like turning the heating off and opening all the windows and doors! There’s following instructions and then there’s wasting energy! God knows what our gas bill will be like!

Cat, shut the door!

It’s cold, there’s a draft from the back door. I could shut the door, but the cats come and go. A paw to pull the door open, or a nose to nudge it from the other side. Result? The door is open about 8 inches and the cold draft gets in. But we are told we need better ventilation because of covid19 so I suppose I shouldn’t complain. I wonder how difficult it would be to put a cat flap in an internal door??

Cats are very clever, but they don’t know ‘how to put the wood in the hole’ (a way of saying shut the door). I guess they have fur coats and can curl up with their nose tucked under their paws or tails. I just wish they could shut the door. Maybe I could put a magnet on a collar and get some sort of mechanism to make it shut, who knows? I’ll just get up and push it too again…
