It's a bit chilly!

I remember as a child we would sometimes stay at Grandma's house and on those cold, chilly Winter nights, she would tuck us into a warm bed that had been heated with a hot water bottle covered with a beautifully hand knitted covering with the coziest of wools.

In Winter time, Mum would make our beds with the snugness and warmth of flanelette sheets and extra layers of blankets. 
Nowadays, I still have our bed and Miss Twinkle Toes' cot made up with flanelette sheets,
but the warmth of the coziest hot water bottles have been replaced with
the coziest litlte hot water bottles of all,

and they never go cold!!

So Winston & Max pay their way through life again and are continuing to earn their keep.

I wonder which one will want to sleep with Miss Twinkle Toes when she is in her own little bed?
