Getting Me Ready For Winter
So much time and thought has gone into preparing the veg and fruit gardens for winter, preparing the livestock with health checks, getting in hay supplies and feeds, getting the log supply for the house done, stocking up the pantry, putting Flash into hibernation, I seem to have come bottom of the list again.
Now I am ready.
4 pairs of nice long thick socks
cant do with short thin ones in winter
6 t-shirts to wear under jumpers, the rest of the year I wear vest tops, I have stacks of jumpers already.
4 thick pairs of jogging bottoms, the ones I bought a few years ago are starting to wear a bit thin in parts, jeans I find are find too restrictive for everyday wear and when they get wet they are very cold.
All of the above came to £43 there was some new underwear as well but you don't need to see my knickers do you. Just plain black Bridget Jones types, no little fancy thongs here. 😁😳
Yesterday when we went to pick up animal feed I spotted this coat in farm supply shop
I had looked at these earlier in the year at a show but didn't get one and being out in the rain yesterday reminded me, all my coats are of a shorter length I wanted a long one that will come down to my welly tops to keep that bit between wellies and thighs dry.
I went for a larger size so I can were it on top of a fleece jacket
£33 I am more than happy. I do have waterproofs but it is a bit of flaff getting kitted out in them.
Talking of wellies
The soles are not good for keeping out the cold
A couple of packs of these helps to keep the chill away.
Our lovely neighbours who we bought the land from popped around with welcome gifts for us, beer for Martin
Gloves for me
I go through an awful lot of gloves in winter, a very welcome gift.
So I am all sorted now for under a £100 no designer stuff nothing from branded high street shops just practical clothes to see me through a couple of winters.
Bring it on I am ready. 😉😜

Went to get some paint but shop closed at 4-30pm, to paint large white gate.
