    I can't believe it has taken me this long but I have bought a pair of snow pants. With two pairs of joggers and my legs are warm again. Added bonus is they are waterproof! 😃x

    Enjoy your snow pants Matthew.. its so hard to keep warm !

    I have just ordered wheelchair " cosy toes " . I resisted because it reminded me of babies in a pushchair but needs must. Style has not quite gone out of the window yet as they do bright colours and I'm looking at gloves to match !!! I 😁👨‍🦼☃️🧣🧤 x


      Tk Maxx used to sell off ski pants and other winter sports gear in their sales for next to nothing. Not sure what kind of sales they will have now with the virus causing problems. I bought two pairs for about £6 a few years ago.
      when i can think of something profound i will update this.


        I might get some snow pants too Mathew as they sound better than using my winter wheelchair bag/cover/muff (I forget what it was called). Don’t get me wrong, it’s toasty warm but a bugger to get out of to go to the loo when I’ve been out and about. That’s before March because of that currently pandemic restrictions.

        I have phases in what I dress in. For several months I favoured leggings but finding them awkward now I’m back to dresses and tights. But the tights are even harder to manage so I don’t bother putting them on if I’m going out. I’m bare legged mostly at home but often have a blanket over my legs.

        I never want to be dressed in jogging pants.

        For hillwalking on wet days I had top of the range gortex pants, These were great but I gave the to my daughter. I’ve regretted that sometimes. I could buy more I suppose.

        ALS diagnosed November 2017, limb onset. For the 4 yrs previously I was losing my balance.

        I'm staying positive and taking each day as it comes.
