Keeping warm in the bedroom

I thought I would share with you my latest discovery for keeping warm in the bedroom. No its nothing saucy , far from it , in fact it reminded me of my grandparents when I first saw it. Oh the suspense is probably killing you but it is a fleecy mattress topper ( I did say it reminded me of grandparents ! ). Where we live there is a store called B&M, kind of like Home Bargains sells all sorts. Whilst there recently I saw these mattress toppers and wondered how good they would be, a king size being £6.99. I decided to buy one and give it a try. Its like a fitted sheet so very easy to fit but the fleece only goes up 75% of the sheet as there is no fleece under where the pillow would go. I found that after a few minutes I could feel the difference already and in the mornings it is so snug that you don't want to get out of bed . I was so pleased with it that I went a few days later and picked up one for my daughters bed, a double size at £5.99. Needless to say she is thrilled with hers and is all toasty each morning. Not a bad investment for just under £13 in these cold times.


  1. That's a really good price for them - I may go and buy K a new one.My Mum bought me a fleecy mattress topper years ago - I've never looked back, and put them onto the girls beds aswell when they moved out of the cot. When she was a teenager K also had an old quilt over her mattress - that made it really cosy - no wonder she stayed in bed so much!

  2. Never heard of these but will look them up.

    I am so impressed by your Christmas hamper. You must be patting yourself on the back now.

    And just in case you don't see my comment I am so pleased with your mortgage overpayment. The first of many!

    Do let me know if you decide on your sealed pot goal. You are No 24 on my list. Each SUNDAY is SEALED POT SUNDAY and I'd love it if you popped over!
