It's almost 9am and still less than zero °C here in Canberra (please take note anyone who thinks Australia is always warm). I finally succumbed and turned the heater on (but not before adding a blanket and possum merino hat to my existing work-from-home woolly ensemble.)
I can tell you from experience the following things are not recommended on a morning where it's minus 5 degrees:
* Vacuuming with a vacuum cleaner that has a metal pipe
* Hanging wet washing on the line
* Emptying the compost bin and rinsing it out with the garden hose.
Now do excuse me. I'm off to fill up the hottie to snuggle on top of my feet...
