People who’ve been reading this blog for a while now might know that I got a new pair of night splints a few months ago; and I’ve blogged about my love for them ever since. I wake up in the morning feeling like I’ve had a really good stretch without having to put in too much effort (besides remembering to get someone to put them on for me). I don’t have to find time to build wearing them into my day either. Needless to say; I think I’m in love. As long as I remember to put a pair of socks on so that the straps don’t rub my feet I couldn’t really find anything not to like.
Just lately we’ve been having some really warm weather here to the point where I can walk around the house in bare feet; and I say this as someone who owns a pair of microwave socks because her feet are usually so cold. I love warm weather so I’ve been switching between bounding around like an excited puppy, eating loads of Ben and Jerry’s, and reading in the garden or our lovely and warm conservatory. Happy days! I love it. Until it’s time to go to sleep.
My night splints are also fully-lined on the inside, (that’s part of the reason I find them so comfy), but it also makes my feet really hot. Usually, I find having warm toes quite a novelty, but with the added heat it’s making them just that bit too toasty.
I’ve started sleeping with my feet poking out of the bed covers to try keep them cool, but the other day I had to admit defeat and take them off. I’m even thinking of wearing them during the day (I can also wear them when I’m resting if I want to) until it cools down a bit.
Still, I’m not going to complain that the sun is here. I’m going to enjoy it while I can!
Now, who wants an ice cream?
