put your feet on a hot water bottle when you sit down in the evening.
Wear thick wolly socks.
Wear a wolly hat as a loy of heat is lost through your head.
Wear layers of clothes rather that one garment.
Hope this is a little help to you.

Jam making

If you happen to be making jam which does not have much pectin in, instead of using water use cider. There is pectin in it and will help to set the jam easier.

The light levals will be too low and there will be too little sun plus there will not be enough day-light hours. Better to wait until next year when you can start your seeds early.

Congratulations, you have made the first move in liberating yourself from a life of being nailed to the cooker. I suffered a little bit of that when my kids were growing up. When they got married there was'nt a peep out of them. They ate all that was put in front of them. Keep at it and don't give in.
