It's not so much the cold which affects me,but the arthritic disease I have suffered with since my teens,,and which was why I came to live up north in 1980!!! I get up at 6 each day,though while it is a bit cooler here I often will go back to read a book while snuggling up with my darling dogs on my bed!!
Yes definitely. the trick is to warm the room slightly before needing to get up I think. And those heating light lamps in the bathroom are a must. Just not fun otherwise. Can't wait for the warmer months already.
Well,I must add to my previous reply on this one!!! This morning,despite beling in gthe tropics,it was just under 7 degrees when I had to get up at 6 am!! And it was AWFUL!!!! I had even been up at about 4 to find some almost long-lost woolly-warm bed socks which I put on immediately,then climbed back into my warm bed for the further 2 hours!! I would have been lost without them,when I did get up!! I know that many people keep their medication on their bedside table with a glass of water so they do not have to get out of bed to take their early dose,but I have always deliberately made sure that I HAVE to get up and MOVE to get mine!!! It would be so very easy to stay in bed and just not have to move,but this is the worst thing I could possibly do with my particular condition!!! I immersed my poor hands in warm water for about 10 minutes,before brewing a lovely fresh pot of vanilla tea to enjoy. Oh YES!!! I DID HAVE A HARDER TIME THIS MORNING THAN I USUALLY DO,THANKS TO THE LOWER TEMPERATURE!! I am wearing more layers this morning that I can remember even owning! Ha ha ha ha!!!!! I am now sitting with a dog snuggled on either side and the lap top warming my legs,but only for another half an hour when I shall go out into the gorgeous sunshine which shall then warm me right through!!! Bless the tropical winter sun!!!!
Am now making-up for 45 years' of having to get up early to go to work, & on one shift, that meant 4:30am rise! Standing at a cold platform for 5:55am train, to get me to work for 7:00am start, was still dark in Winter! Shiver!
