It has been a while since I last posted here. Although, I like posting here, but things normally get in the way of things. In the last couple of days, I have been going to my mum's after work to take her around both for shopping and paying a few bills. We all know how cold it has been lately, so it makes sense to keep an eye on her health and make sure that she does not go into the cold on her own.
Although we recently moved her into a new apartment, she's yet to get used to the new environment, the surroundings and the transport system. She does not drive anymore because of her age. That's why I have to see her every so often.
That said, I recently bought myself a nice Heated Blanket over the Christmas period which works very well - it sheds you from the bitter cold and also helps to cut down on heating bill. Seeing how good it is, I thought I would buy one for my mum. She had one of those Wool Blankets you get at top shops, but never uses them. They only come out of her warddrobe when there's someone sleeping over. So, effectively meaning they have not been well used in the past few years. They still look quite new and clean. But that's not the reason they were bought - they need to be used, not for keeps.
Knowing she would not listen to me, I bought her another one that she can use and not stash away in the wardrobe. The Penninghton Wool Blankets and Heated Blanket are what I hope she will get used to using everyday.
Hopefully, this should help keep her warm when she doesn't want to have the heating on in the whole house.
