Keeping cool this yule

We are enjoying the early Christmas present that Jason's parents gave us on the weekend. A good old pedestal fan with a touch of the retro about it...

There are no ceiling fans in the house and we own nothing to help keep the main part of the house cool. And the tight budget doesn't allow us to air condition the entire house.  The only air conditioning unit is in our bedroom (thankfully). The boys have small desk fans in each of their rooms (we have had them for years) to keep it bearable on those hot humid nights.

We will be able to move the fan around the main living areas no problems and pack it away when no longer needed during winter.

Even though the predicted temperature for Christmas will be in the low 30s, I have a feeling this fan will have a major work-out over the next couple of months.


  1. Good lord I must be soft I can't live without aircon. Have a great Christmas. xoxo

  2. I love these retro-inspired fans. Sadly not as necessary here in Wellington! Have a lovely lovely Christmas with your family. I hope you find a wee spot in the shade! Amanda xx

  3. God bless fan fans, though it's so cold here that fans seem like fiction. A very merry Christmas to you, and thank you for your entertaining glimpse of far away.
