Reply I sometimes pull it out just as I nod off. Other times, I fall asleep with it still tucked in my pillow. Reply Brrr! The very thought of having an ice anywhere near my bed gives me the shivers. I need a hot wheat pack at the base of my bed to keep my feet warm, otherwise I don’t sleep. I often waken in the night because my body has gone cold and need to turn on the electric blanket in both winter and summer! Reply Do your Irish summers ever get scorching hot?
