As we have been getting warmer weather lately, not only has the heating been off for easily over a month, but we have also started to eat lighter meals, which in turn means less usage of the oven etc.
I am still monitoring our electricty usage and it has been crawling downwards.
I try every morning to bake a cake or some cookies in the oven whilst I am baking the bread, and even some mornings will cook the meat needed for the dinner that night.
This is a win win situation; the oven is on during the cheaper costing electricty and the kitchen doesn't get heated later in the day when the sun has heated it.
Usually we will have something like a salad with new potatoes,
