Sandra, theres something now called the health and safety act which means if a building drops below a certain temprature then its not fit to be used, thank god i wasnt a kid in the 60's it sounds like a horrible era to live in!

I'm tipping this will be the first of many more if this cold snap continues!!!  Can you believe that it's snowing in Greece and Turkey very heavily, with major disruptions and power cuts!!??  It's at times like this I am quite happy to be living in Barnsley, we're very lucky where we are situated, mostly sheltered greatly by the pennines.  (As you can guess I don't live anywhere near Penistone)
