How do you warm up?????

Shit, it is cold today! Winter has definately come, its about 9.30am and the expected high is for about 18 degrees celcius and I must have the worst circulation, as my hands feel like ice. So how do you all keep warm, when it gets cold? Now be aware that where I live, well our houses are not designed for the two weeks or so of really cold weather that we may get each year, like my house has no fire place, no heating- it is completely open and airy (perfect for stinking hot summers) I want to feel warm!

I think that 18 C is the perfect weather..

To keep warm, I usually bundle. If your hands are cold, stick them under your armpits or sit on them. Or put gloves on. and definatly drink something warm, like hot chocolate

Layers! Lots and lots of layers.

When it gets really cold here, I sleep in long sleeves with 2 or 3 blankets and socks. I'm always cold.

Do you have a colourbond roof? Sit on it.

Or go to the shopping centre and hang around all day.

I have discovered layers since my sons reached the Under 16 team and their competition is played at night time. They didn't have to play last weekend and I was sitting by the fire last night saying "do I HAVE to go to soccer? it's soooo cold out there!" Wearing that light but warm inner garment makes all the difference. I once thought I hated synthetic fabric, but now I wear it.
It's hard to keep your fingers warm when you enjoy typing. My hands get cold when I'm here on the computer. We'll be moving it into a sunnier room soon. That will be great.
Our house is surrounded by trees and it is shady and gets damp in winter. It's the dampness I don't like. I have always wanted another dwelling ( teepee maybe) to live in in winter, further up the hill where it catches more sun. I love cooking on a fire in winter. A one day dream...
Our bedroom doesn't have heating and definitely no electric blankets for us. It is unlined but I love it. We rescued some hundred year old timber to make it and I don't want to cover it up. That's where a sleeping partner ( or puppy) comes in handy. Two eskimoes in a blanket and socks....if my feet are warm I can cope. I am waering flannette PJ's this winter for the first time since I was a little girl...funky monkey PJ's.
So layers and activity and warm food, soups etc. and finding a spot in the sun as often as possible is all I can suggest.
I much prefer Australian winter to Australian summer. Autumn is perfect imho.


I got a guilt attack when I read your topic heading...I thought you meant "warm up" as in before exercise.

Come to Nova Scotia in winter. Where we get regular temps of -40 Celcius on the coldest days. And 1 full meter (that's 3 feet, people) of snow in one day.

PS: Why the hell would you need a fireplace for a temp of 18?!?

well you have to remember that our night time temps can get quite cold, they probably get as low as 3 or 4 degrees and the main thing is that our houses are not designed for cold weather- so you feel it really badly. My house has exposed beams and no insulation and I have polished wood floors everywhere, so ya feel the cold. But like I said it is great in summer, when it is like 35 degrees.

Seriously I could never imagine experiencing minus 30 weather, shit I've never even seen snow!!!!

Hats and socks.

You loose 40% of your heat, or sumfin, through your head and feet.

PS I have never seen snow either.

18 Celsius is like 65 Fahrenheit.....here, it's colder than that 7-8 months of the year (can we say, Lake Effect blizzard?!?!). 18 Celsius is actually warmer than us students keep our houses even thought we DO have heat (heat is too expensive). Just pile on the blankets! Even here in Michigan when it's snowing out, we turn off or turn down our heat at night to save $$$ so I usually sleep with 5 or 6 layers of blankets.
