Wear layers

Layers! I'm all about layers at this time of year. I have numerous hoodies, jumpers, vests and socks on standby for when the cold hits. By the time the cold weather comes, fashion goes out the window!

I also make sure I have a couple of pairs of gloves, both fingered and fingerless, with a good wrist length for maximum coverage.

I wear extra layers and keep a hot water bottle and blanket downstairs. I also have a flannelette duvet cover and sheets, an electric blanket and fluffy socks and slippers.
