I suppose these days with the house having been warmed up all evening with central heating, a duvet is sufficient.
But I can remember years ago as kids when our house felt freezing cold upstairs at night when you went to bed.
The more blankets the better, with even a coat thrown over as well at times. Ooerrr

I can remember electric blankets....They used to scare me as a kid though because i remember seeing a news story where some of them used to catch fire affraid ...I can remember not wanting mine on after seeing that Laughing ...then insisting on having my hot water bottle back again!

I had asthma as a child, the cold wasn't helpful.

We never had central heating either...My mother had a very bad habit of buying bloody old and decrepit places and then doing them up over time...then once they were brought up to scratch and really nice we moved on to the next bloody hell hole...method to her madness sure...but we got a bit pissed off with it at the time Laughing

I find it really odd when I see footage of the swinging sixties when coal and milk and groceries and all manner of stuff was still delivered by horse and cart!

I can still remember the rag and bone man coming up my road as a kid!....You have to pay to have anything taken away these days!

I'm not old enough to remember that. I do remember the pop man in Cyprus though, used to deliver bottles of pop right to the door Very Happy
