The Soothing Comfort Of A Hot Water Bottle …….

Hot water bottleI think you will all have noticed that there is now a distinct autumnal nip in the air …..
Hot Water Bottles…..we certainly have at Chateau Castle Greyskull and to that end we have started the nightly ritual of popping a hot water bottle between our sheets at around eight o’clock at night, so that they are all warm and romantically snuggly when we turn in.
keep warm this winterIt also gives Nigel and I the opportunity for a little downtime to discuss the salient matters of the day, like the worrying number of broken wooden ice cream spoons that were in the kitchen’s last order from the suppliers …………
Hot Water Bottles..…….. and whether Nigel should suggest to Cook that perhaps they should trial the alternative plastic ice cream spatulas for a while……
keeping warm in winter…… as with all matters of this serious type of import, I tend to advise Nigel to sleep on it, telling him that “big ships at night are small potatoes in the morning”
Boots hot water bottleThis usually seems to quell his fears ….. as does making himself the filling in a hot water bottle sandwich when he gets into bed ….. what is he like?

Maybe someone crafty could make use of the broken ones.
It was below zero here the last two nights. Not than just a nip in the air, more like a huge pinch.

Wouldn't be without my hot water bottle boys - Mr D maybe should have a couple of them about his person considering the temperatures he is enduring, would hate any bits to shrivel up due to the inclement weather. Heaven forbid.

Nigel's size is one big advantage in a hot water bottle snuggle up! Lovely covers on those bottles...warm and cuddly is the best time to discuss important matters...the spoon issue raises questions best pondered during Nigel's quiet time.....Dianne

If all players are wrong the murderer gets
away and everyone loses. Even Halloween parties with the very best Halloween costumes can get
dry after everyone's seen the costumes to be seen and passed out the candy to the beggars. The game would begin with them watching the collapse of society and the outbreak of magic around the world.
