It makes no sense. I keep the heat set at 20 degrees celsius. I have on yoga pants and a sweatshirt, socks and slippers. I should NOT be cold.
But from now until about APRIL, I will be cold almost ALL the time. My mother was always cold. Granted, I still find she keeps her house crazy-hot, and I'm not quite at the point where I need a blanket in summer, but I'm starting to understand. I'm not quite 40, so I'm not sure if this is an age thing, a hormone thing, or what. But does it matter? I'm just COLD.
My next knitting pattern is fingerless gloves. I wear slippers or wool socks because the coldest things are my hands and feet. But really, no part of my body is exempt. The tip of my nose is cold. My arms are cold and so is my butt. And right now I've got a blanket around my lower half AND my infrared space heater about 3 ft away (set to 72 fahrenheit).
Just wait until April though. It won't take long for me to start complaining about the heat and humidity. Apparently I only have 2 thermostat levels: ice cube and on fire.
