    It's perishing cold here this morning. -1.6˚C here just now. Flat calm, beautifully crisp and bright though.

    Haven't looked out my thermals yet, but I've got the fleecy boot/slipper things on these last few days.

    Bit overcast here this morning so not too bad. We've had few -4° or so mornings in the last couple of weeks though.
    Max Wall, there's a blast from the past, those of us who can remember him are showing our age!

    It's cold and a still too wet here in Herts for my liking. I happened to be looking at thermals (and pyjamas) tonight, who makes good quality thermals?

    +2C with rain and N wind. Maybe some wet snow on everything by morning.
    Hot drinks. Hot breakfast, even soups.
    1. I need a selection of extra blankets for the bed. That plus flannel cloth jammies.
    2. No, I will not turn up the central heating above 19C.
    3. I really enjoy flannel-lined denim jeans. A quilted flannel overshirt
    (instead of a sweater/jumper) because it has lots of pockets!
    4. Then, I go out. Outback Kodiak waxed canvas hat. 20 yr old Carhartt barn/ranch coat busts the wind, snow and rain.

    This ka-ka has already hit -16C and -30C over the winter is not unusual.
    The sled-heads claim there's no more than 12-16" up top to ride on but that will be 10-20' by March.
    = = =
    Look at the fabrics. The softer, fuzzy things warm faster and hold the heat better than the slick, smooth synthetics.
    Google McBride. The mountain tops are fresh loaded with snow. Post card pretty.

    I wish I could find mine. I had them a couple of weeks ago. Washed them ready for the winter. But they have hopped it somewhere. Realy frustrating! I may have to go and buy some more then they will turn up... and yes I've checked the ironing pile and the draws. I remember folding them up and putting them somewhere but blowed if I know where!

    Bought a new pair of denim (?) pants.
    Some sort of fabric thermal lining and it isn't the traditional flannel.
    Lost in my packing to get home from the city.
    When found, I'll post. the tag notes.

    I've got thermal underwear, it's forever riding down and twisting.
    I'd rather have the thermals built right into pairs of pants.

    Got two pairs of thermal denim jeans. One from aldi a few years ago and I bought a new pair this year from rohan(Expensive,)but as you say so much more comfy than wearing thermals that twist and ride up your legs. I'm with you there RV.
