Cold feet strike again

My Microwavable socks
My Microwavable socks

My feet are always cold. Lots of you probably know that already. I blog about it quite a bit. I have poor circulation so they’re  often a rather fetching shade of purple or, when they’re really bad, black. I try not walk around without socks too often but I don’t tend to wear them in bed, especially if I have my night splints on. When my boyfriend stays over I put them on him instead. He bought me microwavable socks for Christmas once. While I don’t deny that they help me an awful lot, there was also a not-so-subtle hint in there that I should stop using him as my personal warmer, which I have of course ignored.

Last night was yet another of those nights where I have trouble dozing off, but this time it wasn’t because of aches and pains. This time it’s because my toes (and the rest of my feet) were frozen In the end, I got out of bed especially to put some socks on.

It’s definitely getting colder now.

The simple joys of summer

As you’ve probably guessed by now, I love the summer. The light nights, the walks with friends and the ocassional BBQ, I enjoy it all. More than anything though, I look forward to the warmth.

I’ve spoken before of how much harder I find it hard to move in the cold, and how my circulation (especially my feet) can get quite badly effected. They’re often black or grey and it’s not very pleasent as I quite often get pins and needles. So, whatever the wheather you’ll usually find me in thick socks. Well, dear readers I just wanted to write a quick post to share with you one of my most simple, but greatest joys of the season.

The other night I woke up in the middle of the night feeling far too hot, only to find that when I removed my socks (yes I keep them on for bed) my feet were a wonderful shade of pink!

Even my boyfriend was amazed.

They  stayed that way while I had a wonder around to cool off a bit, which never normally happens! It wore off in the morning though, but, hey, I’ll take what I can get.
