  2. Hi Lindi, my favourite way of getting warm, is to put on my Eyore Flannel PJ'S, bed socks, a thick warm dressing gown that my work mates bought for my birthday, hop into bed with a good book and of course put on the reverse cycle heating, with a hot mug of Hot Chocolate. Way to go!!Warmest Regards Lyn http://bluebirdquilts-lyn.blogspot.com

  5. Hi Lindi, aren't we a bunch of couch potatoes? I'd love to say I keep warm by going for long rambles in the bracing wintry afternoon, but this would definitely not be true. I, too, love climbing into bed after turning my electric blanket to its highest setting, and luxuriating in the warmth, just about toasting myself!

    Hi Lindi,
    Funny that at your end of the world it is winter and over here (being in The Netherlands) it is over 31 degrees Celcius at the moment, even too hot to do some crafting!!
    But when it is cold (so cold that you can skate on rivers etc.) I love to get warm by drinking hot chocolate and eating some chocolate
    while being wrapped up in a quilt.
    Hugs from Holland,
    Ineke

  7. my favorite way to get warm on a cold night is to snuggle up under a quilt or afghan with a nice cup of hot chocolate or coffee. Now this is my favorite way unless my hubby happens to be around...:)

  9. Snuggling under a warm quilt - or better yet draping a quilt on my lap to hand quilt, in front of a nice fire, sipping a glass of sherry.

  10. Hi Lindi, thanks for visiting my blog. My favourite way to keep warm is with a hot Milo in front of the fire. We have had some really cold weather here lately so we have had to really practice snuggling up and keeping warm.

  11. Hi Lindi, I am shivering on the east coast in NSW too! My favourite way to get warm is get into my jamas, rug up with a quilt & a nice hot cup of homemade soup! And of course, good company never goes astray! Laughter makes you warm in more ways than one!

    ReplyDelete
  12. My fav way is to make a big bowl of vegie soup (tonight it's mushroom and barley soup from the Moosewood cookbook)

  13. Hi there, my favourite way to get warm is to make a lovely cup of Earl Grey Tea, grab my flannel quilt, snuggle into a corner on my sofa with a good book, some hand work or a quilting dvd and get warm and toasty. Stay warm on these cold winter nights. Regards Vanessa.

  16. My favourite way of getting warm is snuggling up to DH. He is my version of the good old hot water bottle.

  17. I like to lean up against the wood stove. That's one of the things I miss most when I'm away from home - I've been at university for the past several winters, and only home for a few weeks at Christmas.

    When I'm at school, I like to wrap myself in a blanket and drink hot chocolate while I read a book.

  22. A glass of red, a good book - and we don't have a roaring fire - so generally I have to settle for Oliver (cat) on my lap and Murphy (dog) snuggled up beside me.

    Watching football apparently keeps my husband and sons warm. LOL

    ReplyDelete

  25. I dislike winter but warmth comes to me wearing a big flannel nightgown, socks, my favorite slippers, snuggled in my flannel quilt sipping hot tea. If there is a football game on, even better.

  31. depends on whether it's day or night
    ...during the day my favourite way of getting warm is dancing or gardening
    ... at night it used to be snuggling with my honey but since he passed away I'm afraid it's just leccy blankie, and flannel jammies

    ReplyDelete
  32. should've said - both the leccy blankie and jammies are under several handmade quilts OF COURSE cos this is a bloody cold house

    ReplyDelete
  33. I like bedsocks and a nice warm cat. That usually does the trick.

  34. When it is really cold I like to enjoy a hot bath or wrap myself up in a nice warm blanket. :o)

  40. I am strange - I LOVE winter, so I wish I were where you are right now! Summer makes me wilt! To get warm, hot chocolate (the real stuff made with milk)right by the fire, we have a wood burning fireplace! Yeah!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love a mug of "boozy Coffee". My brother will make coffee with a little Frangelico in a mug, and I'll whip up grand marnier whipped cream. Then we'll join our parents in the living room, on Christmas eve, and bask in the glory of the tree!

  42. I live in Arizona where it never gets cold, but that doesn't mean that my feet don't get cold sometimes. To warm them up I put them under the upper thigh/bum of the person sitting next to me. Works like a charm! But beware taking that open seat!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hi Lindi,We have a lovely fireplace here so that keeps us warm,and i have thermal underwear that works a treat.

    ReplyDelete
  44. got around to it at last. Well i must confess to bedtime with the electric blanket being on 3 fot over 1 hour and the winter quilt, PLUS an extra quilt, PLUS my favourite cuddle quilt. woops and I have been known to forget to turn the blanket down. Yes I have passed the ladies power surge phase. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. what can I say other then snuggle up under a quilt, it warms you and your heart.

    cheers

  46. I have 2 favourite ways!
    1) curl up next to hubby in bed ... the man has the most incredible heat emanating properties!
    2) get a good roasty fire happening in the brazier and toast marshmallows and down with champers.
    : )

  47. Snuggling under a quilt before our fireplace would be my way to get warm. No need to do that right now here in Germany, though ;-)

    Thanks for your great giveaway! I've posted about it on my blog.

    My favourite way to keep warm is to turn up the heating, light the fire, sip a cocktail and watch a dvd about somewhere sunny and let my imagination take me to tropical places, with my hubby of course.

  58. Hi there Lindi :c)
    I'm in Oz too.

    How to get warm...mmmm
    I think like a lot of us here, I need to snuggle with hubby in front of my fire (watching the fire), chatting or simply sitting saying 'not a lot' and a nice glass of red....and of course, a flanny backed quilt for winter.

    BTW I love what you got for Christmas with the red hat on...I'd like one of those also :p

  60. Since it is hot here (USA-Texas) right now -- I am trying to stay cool BUT when it is cold I like to take a hot bath or shower put on a warm gown and robe, snuggle under a quilt and drink hot tea or cocoa. Oh, and don't forget warm socks for the tootsies.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hiya! I got here thru Kiwi Carole! And I gotta say that I can see why Carole and I are buds, as I came here to write the same thing she did!! Yup! My man is my favorite way to warm up! ;o) But if that's not an option, then I like to take my favorite quilt and throw it into the clothes dryer for a coupla minutes. It comes out HOT! I LUV IT! ;o)

    Off to my blog to post your giveaway! THANX! :o)

  62. To warm me on the inside, a bit of Louisiana Hot sauce will do! On the outside, it takes 6 cats, a quilt and a hubby for now, but I suspect hotflashes will take over before long! lol

    ReplyDelete
  63. My favorite way of keeping warm is snuggling with my sweetie and watching a great movie!
