Frozzed tootsies

My feet got really cold this morning. I was only out there in my converted shed for three hours, it has polystyrene and chipboard underneath the new vinyl but as I hadn't used it for 2 days, any heat from Friday's activities had long since dissipated through the insulation. Two pairs of socks and my heavy walking boots were no defence.

Here's me with my feet on my tiger hotwater bottle whilst I ate my lunch waiting for my poor frozzed toes to thaw out! Normally I would go back out there after lunch but I have retreated to the warmth of the house and am going to package up some parcels for commissions, a couple of alterations from Saturday and maybe make a necklace or two indoors for the rest of the day!

The spell I cast on 1 December has worked - Cambridge was still very green on Saturday and felt positively warm compared with Lincolnshire! There were fewer than normal Christmas shoppers around for a December Saturday - I'm hoping that next week everyone will realise there are only two shopping Saturdays before Christmas day. :-)


  1. I know the feeling - my feet are numb. I'm going to give it another hour in the shed and then I'm going inside to warm up.

    Hope you're all cosy now.

    Great socks, by the way!

  2. You're braver than I am, Laura! I am lovely and warm now, ta and thanks for compliment re: socks, that stitch uses up the yarn but makes a lovely, cosy sock!

  3. I think it's the bubble someone sent me, it must be hanging around your place too. :-)
    I thought it was only me that chanced my luck and entered things twice :-) ha ha.. well done :-) Good luck for tomorrow :-) x x x
    love those Tiger feet :-)

  4. Awww, poor squished Tigger! And to think I'm wearing my fuzzy socks here in San Diego because my toes feel cold...I don't envy your frosty feet :)

  5. Thanks, everyone! They were even colder this morning, I've just about thawed out again now :-)


Thanks so much for visiting, I love it when people leave me messages!
