The wintry weather appeared to show up right about when we went off summer time last weekend. Last night I turned on my central heating for the very first time. After a few minutes the chill was gone. Ditto this morning — it send the temperature from very cold to a pleasant 20 degrees.
I’ve never had central heating before now. I’ve seen it at others’ houses, but never before been master of my own thermostat.
The joy of it may dissipate when the gas bill arrives, but right now, I love my central heating.
