Come Join Me...


By the fire. I wish we had a real one!



Keeping warm is hard to do sometimes in the winter - and we have a kick##se column heater that's good on the energy bills and efficient in heating. However I bought a lovely wool blanket from St Vinnies about a month ago - for snuggling on the couch - you know, the ones with the satin ribbon around - it's a plain camel colour and keeps your= warm. I might hunt around few a few more as I'm sure as the kids get older they'll want one each. $8 was a bargain!

How are you keeping warm this winter?

electric blanket and flannelette pj pants :)

though boyfriends dad consistently runs the central heating then wonders why the bill is so damn huge!

Hot water bottle and a blanket on the sofa - not a nice snuggly one like yours though, just a $5 Woolies fleece.

sorry to brag but we have a wood fire. Phil has access to free wood so it costs nothing but his effort to cut it up. Have just put the electric blanket on the bed tonight, the kids don't need one :-)

My folks have a wood fire and I used to glue myself to it in the winter, nothing better!

We've got a couple of gas heaters and the AC does a pretty good job of heating our place in a short amount of time too.

Oh I just love that video - thanks! :)

I keep warm with an electric blanket and a fleece blanket on the lounge as I type away on my laptop and watch tellie :)

I don't like winter and long to have a fireplace!

It's summer time for me at the moment but in the winter we have central heating AND a fireplace. It gets SO very cold in Seattle in the winter time (and the autumn time & the spring time). You need many layers just to go outside during winter or you risk freezing limbs off.

Ooh we had a real fire in our real fire place on the weekend. I was sitting next to it the entire night and was in heaven - very lucky!
