I remember Bedknobs and Broomsticks from the 1970s, one of the many Disney part animated offerings that were very popular at the time.
But my title is not a typo, I’m talking about the wonders of bed socks and the aid of a broomstick to keep warm.
Bed socks are not exactly the sexiest piece of attire, especially in the bedroom, and I suppose you could argue that in the dark it doesn’t really matter.
However, we have had several cold nights and whilst out shopping, I discovered lovely thick bed socks that could also be worn as slippers as they had those sucker things on the bottom.
I didn’t hesitate and bought two pairs.
Because they are identical and it’s not exactly clear if they are actually two different sizes, I put tags of red cotton in mine. They are perfect for sitting with our feet up on these cold evenings, and Hubby is perfectly content to wear his in bed. He also wears a woolly hat on his head, so as far as sex appeal goes, well……….. there’s not much I can say really, just that I’m on the lookout for a night shirt.
Today, we finally got round to putting up the curtain at the helm door.
We didn’t have to modify the throw over we’d bought apart from doubling it over and putting a hem on the top to push the pole through.
I’d already purchased the broomstick from one of the pound shops in town along with a few other things for presents to take Down South yesterday.
The young lad behind the counter (he seems to be the one to serve me every time I go in so we are halfway on first name terms, ie. I know his thanks to his name tag) was very apologetic about not having a bag big enough for the broom.
I told him not to worry, as I’d ride it.
His laughter echoed right the way to the back of the shop!
