What happened to the sun?

Obviously I spoke too soon. Despite how it looks in this photo, the sky today was slate grey and the temperature felt as if it had dropped 200C. The FB still refused to wear coat and jumper. The kitchen floor was so cold this morning that it hurt to walk on it barefoot (unless you are the FB who also scorns such things as socks) so it is time for these to come out

They are gorgeous knitted slippers from Canada. The inside is fleece which keeps your feet very snug and warm. I have a pair, as does the FB (who refuses to wear them) and the Count has two pairs - a titchy pair and the next size up.

I cannot think or write or function if my feet are cold. I think I have slipper envy!

Those slippers are way cute and snug!

I'm afraid I'm with FB, I never wear socks or slippers causing me to sometimes get called "penguin feet" as my feet can endure sub zero temperatures without my even noticing. I am only ever out of Birkenstock sandals in a snow blizzard and of course at work where I have to wear my sexy ToeTectors. My mother tried all sorts to get me to wear things on my feet indoors, including horror stories of leg amputations due to splinters going septic but to no effect.
