    More fashion updates ...

    Can recommend Friendly Shoes - they only have three different models for adults, but they're light, easy to get on and off, and don't look too medical. Not cheap (the adult models are around £80), but I figure they will probably last longer than I do (not likely to be worn out by vigorous hikes, anyway) ...
    Shop - friendlyshoes.co.uk

    Also noticed some promising-looking extra warm trousers from Uniqlo - they've got an inner sleeve around the ankles to keep warm, and an elasticated waist, but don't look too tracksuit bottom-y, at least on the photos. Will update when I've tried them.

      Ooh Coco (Chanel) 😉 thank you.

      I am very interested in those trousers, in particular the width and stretchiness of the leg opening.

      Please keep up the good work. 😘

        I have to admit, as I can't put my own shoes on or off, I often just wear my gorgeous irregular choice heels - make me feel like a princess and I don't have to worry about walking in them!

        I'm interested to hear how the trousers go. I'm still in my jeans because I hate tracksuit bottoms and most trousers are way too long for me xx

          Happy to be of service

          TinyLady : As a fellow shorty, I found M&S quite good on petite sized trousers. These days I'd need a giant shoehorn and copious amounts of oil to get into a pair of jeans ...

            IDK if you mean that you oil your legs to shimmy on your jeans 🤔 talcum powder can be good too. xx

              My jeans have loads of lycra I think. I have developed this technique (helped by losing weight) where I put my arms into my jeans and then push outwards with my whole arm and somehow pull them up or down that way (my carers help too). No idea how it works, but glad it does because my hands are rubbish but I'm still in my size 8 skinny fit jeans (I'm showing off now).

              M and S used to be OK for jeans, but not found them a good fit for a few years. I prefer Dorothy Perkins now xx
