And there was me hoping to leave my extensive North Face Coat collection over here when we moved!! Guess I'll be rethinking that idea then???
Hope the weather cheers up for you guys soon. If it any consolation its miserable as sin the the UK at the mo and doesn't seem to be getting any better. Then again it has been Royal Ascot this week and Wimbledon starts next week, so its only to be expected!!!!
So much for living in Sunny Devon!!

They must sell combi boilers out there .You would probably have to surface mount them and box the pipes in , with the solid floors , but so what, warm dry towels , and lovely warm rooms would out weigh that for me.
The room sizes are generally alot larger than over hear more open plan so if you bought the right size , to take this into consideration.
My hubby could fit them for us,(dont think hed need a licence for our own!) he's put all ours in this house and our last house, then get the boiler put in by a gas man!!
Does anyone know if we'd be able to do this?
Does anyone know why they are so expensive out there?
They do actually sell heaters over here (free standing rather than radiators and combi biolers) and some houses have reverse cycle aircon so although it gets chilly you can warm your house up :o Trouble is that reverse cycle can be pricey so not good to leave on all day and night
We find the days are ok but does get cold at night. Stick the heating on and a nice warm rug and you are sorted!! The houses here are not generally insulated and do not have double glazing so even with a heater you are warming it up more outside than in :p
It does not normally get this cold, apparently we are having a wetter and colder winter than normal (yeah would be now we are here!!) and the cold spell only lasts a few months (unlike the uk) so heating is not as necessary as it is in the uk.
dont forget your hotties!
How suprised are we having to have hot water bottles & wool hats in OZ! Shocking, tho the days are absolutely beautiful. None of those awful grey overcast depressing weeks that make up most of the year in good ol England .....Think its gonna be a hot summer over here;) slip slap slop!
At least its your winter.
We have not much more than 10 degrees, freak heavy rainstorms, floods.............. this is summer!!!!!!!!!!
Roll on Oz
