Hot Water Bottle [Jan. 14th, 2009|09:52 am]
Tony Grist
Ailz and I have been using hot water bottles since Christmas. Ruth gave us them. Mine has a knitted, roll-neck cover which is really cute.

Here's a tip. Make sure you remove your bottle from the bed in the morning. Otherwise you may forget it's there and sit on the bed and...

...Find yourself stripping off all the bedclothes and wafting the mattress with a hair dryer.

Woops.

Hot water bottles are one of those very British sorts of things- I remember using them when I was living there.

Here in the US, I have a heated mattress pad, a duvet, and two cats.

They're comforting things- in their woolly jackets- not entirely unlike cats.

And like cats they're subject to accidents.

Cats have also been known to leak :)

Oh...

...dear! :(.

I'm glad, though, that you were able to get things sorted out where both the bed clothes and mattress were concerned.

God bless and take care. :).

Re: Oh...

The damage was less severe than a first glance might suggest :)

That's...

...good to hear. *big smile*

Hope that you and yours are doing all right, that things are going okay, and that the rest of the day goes all right for you all.

God bless and take care. :).

There was something to be said for the stone hot water bottles of my youth.
Seriously, I've only once used a rubber hot water bottle - never again! In the morning it was a repulsively cold floppy object. If I ever used one again, I'd take it out before going to sleep, not in the morning.

I grew up with rubber hot water bottles. Everyone in my family had one. My mother used to knit little woollen jackets for them. Mine was red. The jacket helps retain the heat.

Yes, I suppose that a cover would help!
