This is just a great idea and the best hot water bottle ever!! It was only last weekend that I posted a photo of my traditional hot water bottle which I was using to keep me warm in my shop. As it's florist shop I can't warm it up too much because of the flowers and it is something we get used to, working in the cold but just lately it's been a tad more chilly than expected.
So I was popping my hot water bottle into my layers of jacket and coats which worked fine but it would just fall out at the wrong time and leave with an explanation as to why I had suddenly given birth to a hot water bottle on the shop floor. It also made me look like the Michelin Man as well, not that I didn't already with my layers but I was looking slightly more built up shall we say.
Then came a little miracle which was revealed in our local newspaper the Derby Telegraph, they had this article on a body bottle. This is a long hot water bottle which can be wrapped around and tied around the waist. How funny was that? The answer to my prayers, not that I had got to the stage of praying for this but you know what I mean.....the solution to my dilemma.
It was available from Argos so that was it, I ordered it online and boom was down to my local store to pick it up. Not only would it be a good source of warmth for me while at work, it would be a great relief to my lower back pain. I thought it was a bit pricey at first at £24.99 but then I realised I was probably going to save money in buying those heat patches which I stick on to help with my back pain so in the long run a saving.
It only takes a kettle of water to fill and you have six hours of glorious heat around your body. You can wear it anywhere that you feel it helps, even around the shoulders and neck area so very versatile. I love it and I just can't get over how I was only just thinking how to keep warm using a hotty bottle and this popped up.....it's as if someone is keeping their eye on me.
This little baby comes in two colours, grey and a grey polka dot pattern so you do have a choice and the cover is machine washable. All good eh? Brilliant therapy if you have any tummy cramps or pain as you can wear it around your waist and carry on with your busy life. I mean look at this lady in the photo, she looks so happy with hers, it can only be a good thing. Give it a go and let me know how you go on.
Thank you for reading today, come back again tomorrow for my Verse for Thursday but for now, take care.
