I would never spend that on my bed
at home, let alone for something which will soon reek of diesel
and run the risk of getting wet... and probably will only be used for a few weeks of the year.
But the whole idea of our electric
blanket is --- to avoid the cold shock when getting into bed
No comforter, no hot water
bottle, no fleecy lined anything --is going do that. Only an electric blanket.
It's switched off when we hit the sack--as are the ones at home--and then the blankets or doona do their work
to keep us warm during the night.
Our doona is in fact an unzipped sleeping back.
Yep, we're parsimonious!
