some are saying heating is going down, yes it has in some cases, but I still don't know how I'm gonna stay warm this winter. I have applied for warm home discount but you don't tend to get that until maybe Feb or march and that's no good to me I need the help NOW.  I stay in bed as long as possible because it's warmer, I get up and dressed quickly, do my jobs - to warm me up - then I'm wearing extra layer all day to stay warm as I can't afford the gas and electric to keep the home warm enough all day.  I wrap in blankets, and wear a hooded fleece, thick bed socks too.  I will go without food all day so I can put the money on the gas and electric.  But that's not helpful either.   
That's my rant and rave over. Thank you.
