My hands are finally boiling and I know this hot water bottle was the secret. I let my hands sit on the hot bottle and it slowly heats them up to the point where they are no longer cold. It takes a while to get the blood boiling in your hands, but if you are patient with the hot water bottle it usually does the trick in warming them up. My feet also feel freezing so I will put the hot water bottle on my feet soon and let it do its job of warming them up too. Heating devices are also enjoyable at warming up freezing body parts, I like to save money with my power bills and just use a hot water bag instead. I have an enjoyable setup in my flat now that I have a roommate, and it is a lot less stressful now that my bills are basically split in half. She works for this local company and doesn’t make a lot of money, so I gave her a lower rent because she is such an enjoyable roommate. I pay about $150 more in rent but it is fine with me because I still have enough money to pay all my bills each month and save a little. We just try to use the boiler and a/c device less so that we can save money on the electric bills each month. The weather is pretty mild right now so we won’t have to worry about using it for another couple of months or so.
