Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
On the topic of heating:
I find that I don't mind much if the place I live in is cold. An extra sweater and a blanket can do much to keep me warm enough in the winter. I like sleeping in cold rooms a lot and find little reason to heat my bedroom, except for the very coldest days. What I do want to get is an infrared directional heater to turn on when I get out of bed. I find the time between getting out from under my blankets to having my clothes on quite unpleasant in a cold room, and I can spend quite some time dreading to get up and having to confront the cold, which slows me down on cold winter mornings. Electric IR heaters are very nice if one only wants warmth for a short time in one spot. They irradiate you, rather than insisting on heating the entire room. Once I get one of these and set it to turn on 5mn before my alarm clock, I think my quality of getting out of bed in the winter will improve significantly.
