Snuggle Bug

I found a wonderful gadget(?) in Lidl, it is a bit Grannyish but I really do not care IT WORKS a treat.

.

It was on their Monday Special Buys and for £14.99 worth a try. Boy oh boy it does a great job. I have used it twice now and my shoulders, back and neck feel so good.

The dark beige is not pretty but I can live with that, I would love one in Cerise.

I had to sit around and wait for a couple of hours yesterday, in Neath. I did a quickstep round Morrisons , see the recipe blog, and had a little walk round the town. Then I parked myself in the car with my crochet.



The yellow squares will be finished today and I have to decide what colour next. I also need to decide what to do about the big squares, use one colour or traditional style with a different colour for each round. More decisions.

I am stuck in the house today, there is a delivery coming. No nothing lush for me, but a money saver for Ben. His special shampoo is very pricey so I did an online search and found it for just over half the Vet's price and the ear cleaner to boot and free delivery for a £40 spend. Win Win.

I still have bulbs to get into 4 troughs, it is touch and go whether I have enough compost. It is shopping day tomorrow so I can get them in and then if I run out top them up when I get back.

Nothing else spring to mind so I am off to put the kettle on.

  1. That looks great, what a pity you have to be plugged in though, imagine how cosy you would feel wearing that under a coat when you are outside in sub-zero temperatures ?

    1. Ha Ha, I did think of that and tried it with a silky scarf but it got in the way of my knitting pins.

    1. It is the best thing that I have bought in a long time, almost as good as my Grace Frame.

  4. If it does the job, who cares what it looks like?

    1. I don't really care, but it is the only beige garment that I have, it is obviously targeted at the elderly and ought to be available in brighter colours.

  5. Oh, I must have reached 'a certain age' because that looks wonderful. Like getting a warm hug. X

  6. I am a Granny and therefore it certainly appeals.

    1. I love it but I do like colour, I dislike the assumption that older people wear dull colours.

  7. Thank you for posting about the heated shoulder pad, I shall look in my local Lidl to see if I can get one for my mum and dad as they both suffer with aches and pains in that region. You've also just reminded me to check online to see if I can get Archie's flea tables any cheaper. The vet used to prescribe Frontline but you needed a prescription to buy it online and the vet wouldn't give one, how bad is that? They now prescribe a tablet, I haven't looked in to exactly what it is but I shall be looking again online to see if I can get it as it's so much cheaper than buying off the vet. I think it's really bad though that the vet won't give a prescription, I rang round a few vets and none of them would.

    1. Most local chemists sell Frontline if you ask and slightly cheaper than at a vets. Also try Vetvits (healthspan.co.uk) online for vetflea, their equivalent, that contains the same chemicals as Frontline and is a lot cheaper with free delivery. No prescriptions needed in either case. I used Vetflea on my Labrador for many years and it worked very well. The old lady is sadly no longer with me but I also used their glucosamine tablets for her towards the end which helped her a lot. My vet recommended the company many years ago as the cheapest way of treating her. I don't think many practises do that now. He was truly a vet in it to care for animals rather than make money.

    2. I use chewy blocks for Ben one for fleas and ticks and one for worming, it is easier for me and works well. I tried frontline when I first had him and he used to crawl along the sofa trying to wipe it off.

    3. It was Frontline Combo which he used and as far as I can see, that isn't available without a prescription, only Frontline is. As I said, he doesn't use that now so I'm hoping that I have better luck tracking down the new tablet online. He's due to be flea'd and wormed next week so I shall make sure I know exactly what he's being prescribed so that I can do a bit of online research. Isn't it great when you hear of vets actually looking after the animals rather than being in it for the money.

  8. Well, I just read your post and immediately rushed down to Lidl despite the fact that it said the offer was over when I looked online. I wouldn't normally have gone for anything like this, I always think they're gimmicky but at half price and with your recommendation I was happy to take a chance.
    Well I am sitting here typing all cuddled up in my shoulder warmer and they had a nice, cream coloured one which matches my Goldie and he is very interested in it. I must admit I'm really enjoying it at the moment. I have a hot water bottle in my lower back as well. Well I am a granny so I don't really care what I look like!
    Thanks Pam. Here's to pain relief - I'll drink to that!

    1. I may make a couple of cotton covers that attach with velcro, Ben has taken to sitting beside me with his head on my shoulder, he likes the warmth as much as I do.

  10. I have one of those shoulder heating pads and they are the greatest thing since ice cream. 8-). I have a bad shoulder and neck and the heating pad makes them both feel wonderful. I put it on, lay back on the futon and watch my binge shows. Glad you like it.
