Nothing wrong with good old hot water bottles.
Any form of heat will do, when we very first bought some white goods in Corfu Town, at that time there were no other places to buy things like that, we bought a cooker and a fridge, the stors insisted that we also buy an electric radiator a fan and a couple of those round pitta tins. As we were not paying but they were being added to our friends taverna account to be paid as and when, we had little choice but to accept.
All still going strong, the electric radiator is a real boon as it can be moved from room to room where it is needed most.
Prior to our arrival last October, our friends Molly and Paul, popped in the day before and put on our heaters and Wendy's electric blancket all on low,just to get the house warming up.
Where would we be without our support networks of friends.
Sarah, dont forget you'll also need some kindling (off-cuts of tongue and groove planking is perfect) and newspaper is still the best thing to start a fire going.
