I think Edinburgh is not so cold today but wet. It was much more colder few days ago when I found the frost on my car glasses in the morning two times in the last two weeks.
Satchi, yes I use electric blanket. I put on before going to bed so when I go the bed is very nicely warm.
I hate cold.
In my university names of the examiners are submitted to registry at least four weeks before the submission of the thesis. Registry decides if they are appropriate and officially appoints them. So I find it strange that you still don't have examiners appointed after submission.
I would definitely contact my supervisor and chase up.

My supervisor gave me two options for the external examiner. One is from industry and one is academic. I don't know both so for me it's indifferent. Does anyone have any experience with an examiner from industry? Will it be a disadvantage compare to an academic?
Ev, hot food makes opposite effect. That's why it's used in hot climate countries. Eating hot chilies increase the body temperature so it decreases difference of temperature with the surrounding and you feel less hot. Besides it stimulates sweating which cools the body.
Purplecat, I live in Scotland and I think the summer has gone too.
Satchi, I use the heating at home in the evenings and electric blanket to warm the bed otherwise it's too cold here. I work at the office and there is no heating there though. I suffer from the cold very much and am used to real hot summers (in my home town it's 35°C now). I hate Scotland for this.
I am impressed by your patience. I mean it's 5 months and you are sleeping on the floor and paying rent. I would take action months ago. If it's written in the tenancy agreement, this is a impeachment of contract. I think you need to take a legal advice before taking any legal action now. CAB or your local council is the right place to ask for a free advice.
I also think that your agent is not nice at all. She is probably taking about 15% of the rent to manage the flat and it seems she didn't manage well. She is also responsible for the situation.
You shouldn't feel as a beggar for any reason. You are paying for a service you don't get it properly. I would feel as a victim.
I hope you solve the situation asap.

If I were in your shoes I would wear a shirt. I think not only because it's more bon ton but also neutral. An elegant blouse could be also fine. And no need to have jacket I think if it's warm. I would need a jacket or a coat here in Scotland. Good luck for your interview.
