Day 272 of 365: Ahh You're My Best Friend

This is the heater in our bedroom...

...and it's my best friend this winter.

I usually switch it on an hour or so before we go to bed, because since it's so cold you can see your breath in the darn bedroom, the place needs to be slightly warm when we go in. Also helpes me look forward to bedtime because by the time we head up, the storage heaters aren't putting any heat out anymore, so the bedroom (which is usually the coldest room in the house) is the warmest room in the house.

And winter has only started!


  1. Get thee a hot water bottle!!! It's the best thing to sleep with ever. We don't have heat in our bedroom either, so I'll turn the heater on just to take the chill off for a bit and I put the bottle into the bed to heat it up before I get in there.

  2. Yeah, I want to get hot water bottles, but Ian thinks we'll be considered "old people" if we have

    If we had two, would it heat the whole bed up do you think? We sleep in a king sized bed.

  3. If that's what Ian thinks, you can keep the water bottles tucked over on your side! You'll get the last laugh on that one! :) My friend (who is younger than me!) is the one who introduced me to them when I first moved to England and was FREEZING in my apartment. You could just put one on each side of the bed to heat it up. I do that, then I'll move it down towards our feet while we're sleeping.

  4. Ahhh....I thought I would've needed more than two to warm up the bed...because when we get in it's ice cold!

    Thanks SOOOOO much for the tip, Kim. :) Will have to see if I can get the bottles at Sainsbury's on Monday after my appointment. :)
