So, what clothing do we buy in preparation for the UK winter?
We haven't lived there for over 30 years and then I went from centrally heated house to heated car to heated pub etc. Never used public transport.
So now we envisage a lot of time spent walking along the towpath and standing on the stern of a boat in "chilly" weather.
So far we have bought a couple of Goose/Duck feather filled coats from Kathmandu which are very light and supposedly very warm; makes us look very Michellin Man, mind you I (Paul) don't need the coat to look like him! We are also buying thermals, and are also considering the Driza-Bone full length riding coats - the problem being that I think we might look a couple of nobs with matching Driza-Bones. It gets worse, they also do Driza-bone dog coats!! Elaine's brother thought the Driza-Bone thing might be a bit excessive but Elaine is - as they say up North - quite 'Nesh' - so the warmer I can keep her, the better my life will be !
So any suggestions would be appreciated re clothing, boots and socks etc. - remembering we will not have a lot of storage space!
