Good Morning Ladies,
Goodness me it was cold yesterday, I don't think I was warm all day, the sun was shining but the wind kept the temperature down all day. Hopefully it will be warmer today.
We actually bought an electric blanket in Aldi on Saturday, its a dual side control one which is perfect as Paul likes to get into a cold bed, I change bedding on a Sunday anyway so I put it straight on when we got back, then laid on it to see if I could feel it, which I could, only because its a double and our bed is a king, so there is a ridge where if finishes, I am like "the Princess and the Pea" in so far as I can't even bare a wrinkle in my sheet, so I was in a dilemma. So my solution is...I will put it in the bed when I get out in the morning, on top of the sheet, I will put it on an hour or so before we go to bed, then just before we get into bed I will take it out, it worked on Sunday night, infact I said to Paul that it had earned half of its £20 cost on the first night, it was like a warm hug!!
Did any of you watch Call the Midwife on Sunday? Omg it was so sad, I cried like a baby, after that we watched a documentary telling the stories of some of the Survivors of the Holocaust, it doesn't matter how many times you hear their stories it still shocks you to the core that a Human could inflict such evil onto another Human. I feel we owe it to those who want to tell us how they found the strength to survive to listen to their story. I bought a book called "Lily's Promise ", she is the oldest survivor of the Holocaust (I believe) she has written a book about How she survived the Holocaust, I saw an interview with her, she said that she wanted the world to know everything about the Holocaust in the hope that nothing like it ever happened again. If any of you would like to read it after me, I will gladly post it to you. xxx
