Just too sexy ...

To let you appreciate the significance … if there is any … of this tale I need to firstly take you back in time.

Back to the days when I was young and single … with a slim waist and perky bosom … and my sleeping arrangements were all my own.

Back in those days … when the temperatures dropped … and the nights were cool … I slept undisturbed and cosy thanks to the company of my ever reliable, non snoring electric blanket.

Then Hubby came on the scene … and pooh poohed the existence of the electric blanket.  They're too hot … and too expensive to run … and too dangerous … and too who knows what else … but he was very adamant about it and I've been sleeping on cold sheets ever since.

Now perhaps you can blame my middle aged bones … or my thick waist and not so perky bosom … but this winter I've really been feeling the coolness of those night time temps … and not only have I felt them, they've taken to disturbing my otherwise undisturbed slumber.

But I'm a resilient gal … and I pride myself on adapting to my conditions … so I came up with a plan.

Out came the long flannelette pyjamas … and because I didn't want any cool air sneaking in under the hem of the top … I alluringly tucked it into my pants.  Then, because everyone knows that cold feet mean cold everything I took to wearing an attractive pair of bed socks … but I didn't want a pesky breeze creeping up my trouser leg ... so I tucked the legs of my pants into the socks … in a super sexy and desirable fashion.



Hubby gave me a long and thoughtful look … and then uttered the most romantic words I've ever heard … "I think we might look for an electric blanket in the sales".

HA  … I might not be hot … but I'll soon be comfortably warm with an adjustable thermostat.

  1. Woohoo! result!! :D Me and you could have been twins last night cos that's exacery how I went to bed! No leccie blankie here, we have flannelette sheets and my woollen quilted blanket on top of the bed makes us warm and toastie! I also have and inbuilt heating system that has the odd power surge, I regulate the temperature by sleeping with one leg out of the covers! Give yourself a few more years and you won't need that electric blanket trust me! Phew! xx

  3. You will probably get more than an electric blanket from your hubby that will be either red or black or both, lacey, racey, very very sexy and not very warm!!! MEN!
