Soon (hopefully), our little house will have a brand new wood stove. While we’re longing for a crakling fire, our stay-warm strategy is all about fine-tuning the electric heaters so as 1) not to freeze and 2) not to get a heart attack when receiving electricity bills.
A while ago, as I was getting ready to go to bed after a cold and white day, I found myself dreaming of a nice hot water bottle.
The next day, I did some research to find out what a hot water bottle is called in this country, and then where to buy one. The pharmacy. That is, at least, a one hour drive.
And, after all, a hot water bottle is not much more than a bottle of hot water, is it? I just love it, really, when that happens.
