The north wind doth blow, and we shall have snow ... And what will Mrs Tubbs and her family do then, poor things? As sheltering under wings isn't an option, here are some great things to do whilst waiting for the cold to go away and the sun to come back.
- A big hat. Apparently you lose loads of heat though your head. I'm trying to reclaim it with the aid of knitted hats. Also, scarf and gloves.
- Layers. Layers let you add and take away when you need to. Stopping you from boiling when you're indoors and turning into an icicle when you go outside.
- Footwear. We like going for walks. I get a bus and a train to work. Warm feet are essential. Fur lined boots and Docs for outdoors. Slippers for indoors. My lovely friend Lesley gave me some ice-walkers for the snow.
- Moisturiser. Lots and lots of moisturiser for my face and body. I'm using handfuls of Superdrug's Vitamin E Body Cream. Cheap - and currently on a buy one, get one half price offer for a vat. For my face, I'm adding B.Enriched Restorative Facial Oil to everything. Full of good stuff, suitable for vegans and cruelty free. This is also on buy one get one free at the moment. Plus hand-cream. And lip balm.
- Blankets and hoodies. The manse can get cold, so I wrap up warm in the hope this means we can save a bit by not turning up the heating. I even have a hot water bottle. (I am my mother).
- Umbrella. It has been a bit rainy here recently. But not as wet as it has been elsewhere. Seeing the impact of the rain and floods in other parts of Britain has been so sad.
- A good book. No better time to read as when it's dark outside and you're on the sofa wrapped in a blanket.
What things help you cope with the cold?
