  1. Really lovely, creative and thoughtful, Alison. I will be thinking about which of these will help our cold mornings, tho’ I am also finding that reading in bed at night is too chilly lately…even with a hot-water bottle at my feet.

  2. But let’s make no mistake – there’s NOTHING ‘Beatrix Potter cosy’ about missing days of meals, with the heating off all winter, the lightbulbs unscrewed, selling your sons shoes and drinking his formula milk that the food bank gave you. If that’s ‘cosy frugality’, you’re frankly off the wall.

  3. All those suggestions are lovely Alison, but my favourite is to set the heating to come on half an hour before you are due to get up. Provided of course that one has central heating. If not, you have my sympathies and may I suggest finding a new abode?

  4. Alison I love the revamped site. So glad to have you back, you had me worried there for a while. Alison do you know anything about Sarah Ban Breathnach or her new blog if so can you let me know. I wish you only the best for 2014 and I am looking forward to your future blogs. God bless Donna x
