Daughter bought me two pairs of Heat Holder tights last xmas. A black pair and a lovely brown pair. They really are thick and cosy.
l have just looked online - and Matalan sell leggings/socks/gloves in Heat Holders. As it is pouring with rain - l decided to order online and have them delivered. The gloves are in the mens dept. They also do hats.
l really need to keep my ‘extremeties’ warm. Especially with the cost of gas/electric - we are trying to only use the woodburner to heat downstairs as we get ‘free’ wood. Last winter we hardly used the central heating. OH has access to a builders yard where he can bring back wood that they have burnt. Old hard wood conservatory/staircase/pallets/doors and floor-boards - and we also get trees given to us that have been cut down that he has to collect. Sawing up wood keeps him warm!! - And l can also collect quite a lot of logs on my Tramper.
l have collected lots of lovely apples that neighbours put out for ‘free’. The windfall eating apples l give the horses and the cookers l have been cooking lightly in the microwave and then freezing ready for crumbles/pies/apple sauce. l share out some of our eggs in return or runner beans in the summer months.
