Let us try to be more positive about the winter which will inevitably come unless the world ends first.
It will be an opportunity to wear that big woollen sweater that you bought in a sale and it is always been too hot for you to wear. Now that you can’t afford to switch your boiler on this will be the ideal garment do your hands and feet get cold though?
But do wear a bib because theyvbig wool ijumpers do stick out They can’t wait for you to spill tomato soup anto them.
Did you go to visit a rich friend who can afford to have the central heating on and you’re still wearing your big jumper.
Be careful because being too hot can make you faint.
If you bought a lovely down coat in the sales this is your chance to wear it indoors.
I’ve it so lighto you could always put it over yourself in bed if you feel cold.
I think an electric blanket is very useful whether or not you have heating.
I would find it hard to go back to the freezing bedrooms of my childhood but children sleep well and I miss those days the ending is jumping into bed shutting my eyes and going to sleep straight away l
Sleep problems might start when you move away from home if you have not managed to internalise your mother. According to psychoanalysts children get their security from the mother or father but if all goes well l.day will take in this figure and we’ll be able to to.feel.the secure enough without the presence of that person.
Sometimes children of about 18 0 months in age will develop a fondness for a soft toy or a piece of blanket and this is called as transitional object by the psychoanalyst DW winnicott and it is a good thing because they transfer their feelings from the mother into this object which they can carry about with them and eventually most people stop using these soft toys all the time although many people do have one on their bed.
It’s welcome reminder of the mother or father and it’s soft and furry it’s comforting this is it was sleeping against the mother’s breast having just had a good feed.
