    Default Electric blanket or hot water bottle

    Anyone know where you can buy these. I live in the mountains and despite 3 quilts it is freezing at night - not warm in the day either. I could really do with an electric blanket or failing that a hot water bottle, but never seen here.

    We have a heating pad I brought down for cold nights. You might find one at a box store. I've even used a paint stripper to warm up the bedroom when we've had cold wet patches.

    Yes when you are cooking in the outdoor fireplace put in a brick and heat it up and put it in your bed!

    For a quick homemade fix: Make some homemade rice heating pads. Put some uncooked rice into white socks, tie up the end and stick it in the microwave for one minute. Stays hot for a long time.

    I remember my grandmother heating "bricks" on the wood cook stove
    in the kitchen. She would wrap with newspaper and slip them into the
    beds (upstairs of course). That's telling my age...made for warm toes!

    Thanks everyone. Peter in Brat - you get cold wet patches in your bed? Or did you mean cold wet spells of weather? This is not a cold wet spell, this is winter and colder this year than ever and 2 months to go - at least. Derfish, if i heat a concrete block in the fogon will it not burn the bed? No newspaper in the campo to wrap it in!

    This really must be the coldest winter at least of the 11 winters I've passed here....
