We have made the bedroom into a comfy space and go to bed early with an electric blanket and the dog and watch tv or read in bed - good for the environment, keeps our bills down and is toasty warm

I wear thermal underwear designed for skiing- long sleeved tops, camisoles and leggings. Mine were bought quite cheaply from a chain store. They make quite a difference for wearing indoors or outdoors. They are very practical and wash and dry very quickly.

My knitted socks mean cosy feet,
They go up to my knees.
I climb up on my cycle seat,
And ride the gentle breeze.

I ride my bike to keep me warm,
I love the passing view.
The exercise does me no harm,
Through early morning dew.

My partner comes along with me,
We laugh and meet new friends.
We call in town for a mug of tea,
And catch up on new trends.

Arriving home we grab a cup,
And sit in front of the fire.
Snuggled up with our feet up,
We never seem to tire.

My fashion socks I hang to rest,
Until the next day dawns.
I think next I will knit a vest,
The colour will be fawn!

I think a good way to keep warm would be to have a Velvet Sherpa Throw and a cute Reindeer Doorstop - so here's hoping

Although a good hot meal might have to suffice

I have a pair of salopettes to wear in the garden spring, winter and autumn. I've never been skiing- I'd rather stick pins in my eyes- but salopettes keep me warm, moving and active despite arthritis.

window quilts are fabulous especially if you don't have double glazing - the first post on this thread was the one I used to make mine - I used old shower curtains to back to avoid condensation soaking the quilt and causing mould and second hand thin duvets for padding. http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=4324181

I have used old pillows pinned to the trap door of my loft to insulate it as this seems to be an area usually missed by ordinary insulation.

I bought a fabulous black linen dress lined with the softest fun fur from China on ebay. It is the most comfortable, chic and warm dress I own and will emerge from it in late May I think. That's how I stay warm cloistered with a cup of Earl Grey. Purr Purr.

Invest in a draft excluder for your front door. It's amazing how much heat you can retain by doing this.

For me I always keep a scarf handy to wrap around my neck in case of draughts from the window. I find this very comforting when I am not active and sitting still.
