Coldness

I am not usually one to moan but allow me to paint you a picture and you will understand how valid this moaning is.
My father is possibly the most frugal man in the world, it money can be saved he will save it. From coupons to every special offer EVER. Today I noticed it had become a problem. I got home after a week away only for the house to be FREEZING and I mean see your own breath, cold! He has now decided to avoid lighting the fire to conserve gas which is now very costly, so I asked about the water heater which in out case is electric, nope again cost. We are not hard up, he is self employed with no staff, and earns slightly above average wage plus I pay £170 per month rent. I think for that I deserve heating. But oh no layers are apparently the way forward. now 3 pairs of leggings, 3 pairs of socks , slippers, PJ pants, 2 long sleeve shirts, light weight zip up hoody, my boyfriends hoody (I needed it more, and he is trying to act butch) and fingerless gloves. All I want is a fire it would make me feel 100% better instead however I feel like I am going to get hypothermia and am scared of going to the bathroom as I do not want to remove the layers, shower is out of the question and the toilet is what nightmares are made off. I have managed to acquire 3 duvets but I know there will be that moment when you first get in to be and the 'better' (I use that term loosely) half will put his cold feet on mine and I will have to leave due to the severity of the frost bite to my toes.
I was warmer stood in the wind in a wet hoody at leeds fest.

Moan over.
