…But the fire is so delightful (or at least I’m sure it would be if I actually had a fireplace). Failing that, I’m happy to make do with other ways to keep myself toasty and warm when the weather conspires to leave me frozen and soaked to the core. Aside from keeping the cool air at bay by keeping all the windows and doors of the house firmly closed, and then piling on several layers of warm clothing, I’ve also found that the humble old water bottle packs a serious amount of punch (of the warm variety).
We recently stocked up on a few of the standard (quite ugly) traditional hot water bottles to use throughout the house, which we very inelegantly cover with old pillow cases. However I couldn’t go past one of these cute covered hot water bottles from Peter Alexander (and even better it was 20% off!).
For many, mostly inexplicable reasons I have an obsession with woodland creatures – everything from squirrels, badgers, rabbits and deers. So happily I’ve been able to extend this obsession with my new hot water bottle…snuggly bliss indeed!!
