Bliss!

This afternoon I was out with my friend when she decided she wanted to go to Aldi for some odds 'n' ends. Normally I would just wait in the car but decided to go in with her to stretch my legs as I'd been sitting for a while. On our way out I spotted a sign in the window for a heated throw (£29.99) which was one of last Sunday's special buys, after a few minutes of umm-ing, arrr-ing and generally pondering I decided just to go for it - it was definitely a wise decision!

I'm now on my recliner chair with the throw (9 heat settings & a timer) over me, keeping me warm as toast while I watch the telly. As son & hubby are both upstairs (watching football or some other such nonsense) it also means I can keep cosy without having to heat the whole room.

Can definitely recommend - it's also washable & comes with a 3 year warranty.

do these things use a lot of electricity though?>

I've had a look online at various brands and they only use between 80-120 Watts/hour of electricity compared with halogen heaters which consume around 1400W/hr or a fan heater which consumes about 2000W/hr. One site I looked at said the heated throw (which was 100W) works out at about 1p per hour use so scaling up from that a 2000W fan heater would be about 20p/hr.
