    Total with you! Most nights my fingernails are blue. Freaks the kids out! I have the fire burning, with 3 layers and the rest of them are in their underwear complaining it’s too hot! Fun in our house 🙂

    God bless the inventor of thermal undies, they where made for us WLS patients.

    My first winter post surgery was a nightmare for feeling cold, this year for some reason it’s not so bad, so I must have acclimatised to it, even thinking of going fishing this weekend now that I have just bought myself a nice new thermal lined waterproof outfit along with the ALDI thermal onsie I bought the other week, what a laugh that was when I tried it on, all black and tight it looked more like a gimp suit.

    Now try getting that image out of your heads, that will soon warm you up 😉

    Hehe I’m finally warming up but not sure if it’s the million layers or the thought of Paul or anyone in a gimp suit :0)))x although if it pulls everything in & pushes other things up I might just invest in one or two :9)))x ??

    It is utterly miserable and I’m not going to deny it. When we had no heating in this house last year for two weeks, I cried every single day as my feet and hands hurt so much. There was snow on the ground but we had no heating at all. It was one of the worst fortnight’s of my entire life. I couldn’t think properly, do anything that required motor skills and, worst of all, I couldn’t eat anything as I just couldn’t keep it down. I don’t digest food very well when I’m cold. I ended up going to my Mum’s. Her house is like a sauna as she has COPD. It certainly made my husband get a shift on to get it fixed.

    Seriously though, Thermals are a MUST. As are hand warmers, fleece lined socks and slippers, indoor hats, and my fave the good old fashioned gilet! I have half a dozen in different colours and thickness. Also a scarf round the neck works wonders. In fact, if you think of Dick van Dyke in ‘Mary Poppins’ and channel that look, you should be fine haha! I am wearing fingerless gloves as I type – cor blimey guvnor!!

    Plenty of warm drinks, a great deal of extra clothing and reminding yourself that it is preferable to sweating like a boiler stoker will help. I still HATE it but I would be much colder if I hadn’t had wls – as in dead :-O
