    Hi Maz,

    It is uncommon when it's colder. I think it's down to poor circulation, in the winter I have a blanket tucked in over them and sometimes a hot bag that's warm.

    Hope that you get them warmer.

    Love Terry

    Hi Maz,

    Yes, my feet are like blocks of ice, except when I am in bed. Having had very hot feet for about the last 35 years, it's still a novelty to have cold feet.

    Hi Maz

    Yes, it’s a perennial problem.

    As the nerves die and the muscles waste, there is no muscle tone to keep the circulation going normally.

    Early on, a couple of winters ago, I developed a pain in some toes. Couldn’t understand it, thought I’d bruised them. Turned out to be chilblains! Quite annoying and painful. Do be careful.

    Even in the summer, I now resort to lined shoes, thick or thermal socks – in bed if necessary, hot water bottles and a fan heater under the desk when working.

    …….or you could have a handsome young man kneel at your feet and massage them. (Thought for the day, ladies!)

    Happy landings on July 11th by the way, have dropped a few pennies in your tin.

    Take care

    Doug

    ' fraid not Dina.

    I did say young and handsome, so that's me excluded. Though I am still quite good at some things kneeling down ..... like weeding.

    Hugs
