I would rather burn a few logs to dry the clothes than use that.
When the kids say they are cold, they put another jumper on.
After October half term, that's when the fire should get lit!
It never did me any harm when I were a lad... born in '61 it was '84 before we even had an inside bog and proper toilet rolls !!
Centrall heating came then also and I had more colds that hot dinners [ we couldn't afford to light the oven we was so poor] then I got married and moved out into a house with no inside bog or central heating... It were grand when I were a lad.....
