Poem called chill in the air
It’s bitterly cold outside. 
We warm our souls with a nice warm cup of tea or coffee and toffee chocolate, which hit the spot. We frightened to turn our central heating on and use our gas and log fireplaces. With the energy hikes and gas prices soaring the government are not helping us enough which is leaving us with serious stress and anxiety which leaves us to have sleepless nights and penny pinching and sometimes  not even eating many meals in days.

    Thanks for sharing your poem with us @Globster. I do love a good cup of tea! 

    However, I can also hear your point about concerns around increased finances. Is there anything that is making this difficult time more manageable for you at the moment?
