What made me happy today

Hi all


In another community I'm a member of, we have a thread where everybody just says what's made them happy this day. Thought it would be nice for here too! πŸ˜€

And we're not restricted to posting only once!





To start: I was woken up by my cat purring in my ear. The sun is out, and I had a lovely walk to work in beautiful Bath from where I parked.
I'm also happy today because my dad is feeling loads better after coming out of hospital. Tonight I'm seeing friends for tea and food.

Over to you πŸ‘

TBH our Strutt, I saw a documentary thingy on sleep on BBC and the reporter, who’s name escapes me, but about my age, said she adored it when testing it, and it was like a β€œcosy hug”.

Now you know me and cosy (Selkbag last years purchase) so looked into it more. Little did I know, until looking more into them, that these blankets originated in πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ to help with anxiety, and also a number of conditions in children even, including ASD and ADHD etc.

I wanted it purely for the cosy factor, and wondered if it’d be worth spending all that, if more a β€œmedical” aid, but seems from the Amazon reviews too, that lots buy purely for that aspect, and also a real top benefit seems to be better sleep. Less waking up thru the night etc, and just the feeling of comfort.

I won’t lie, it was quite cumbersome to get the weighted blanket into the cover single handed, as soooo heavy. Took quite a lot of time and energy. The Amazon delivery guy really struggled up the stairs to my flat! He was sweating kippers!

But after managing to assemble it and getting it onto the bed (comes very well packaged and full instructions πŸ‘πŸ‘) and trying it last night, I can honestly say I would definitely not describe it as a hug BUT it does feel quite cosy. It’s soooooo heavy but I did soon adjust to that feeling, so not claustrophobic or suffocating, but deffo deffo different.

I chose this particular one as came out top in a national review, plus a proportion of each sale goes to MH America. Founded by two young guys, Matt and Sam, they’ve now worked on a children’s one too.

Early days yet, but really hoping I will grow to love this new approach to bedding πŸ‘πŸ‘

Hi Bev.
My wife has one of these weighted blankets, and loves it, but I find it too restrictive, so she only uses it when I'm not in bed, or she sometimes goes into the spare room to use it.
​​​​​​​Still more room for me 😊

Thanks Bev thats a detailed response and only 5 emojis, must be the blanket taking affect.
Lets us know how things progress and I'm to off read those reviews as it sounds like weight lifting whilst asleep.

hi Bev
​​​​​​​If we don't hear from you do we need to arrange a rescue team to free you from the blanket?

coming home to a parcel and thinking 'I don't think I've ordered anything, and then being amazed and delighted at the goodies from PP. Especially when I realised 2 of the photos on the calendar were mine!

Fantastic. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

thanks to @Marc, @Nataly and all the PP team.

​​​​​​​Merry Christmas to you all πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸŽ„

Received my calendar and t-shirt from PP. Thank you!

Also, I'm off work until the 7th January. Which may sound odd as I've mentioned previously that I'm retired. Well I was, but I got head-hunted at the end of November and am now back at work, albeit only three days a week, which suits me fine.
