Given the political threats to social security going on at the moment, I don't like to even think about big expenses but I think this might have to be the winter in which I spent a truckload of money on a new coat. Windproof, rainproof, big enough that I can have layer upon layer on underneath, long and flared because it will often be worn en scooter. This will have me looking like a shambling mound but at least I won't die of hypothermia.

Also thermals. Need to fish out hidden thermals and take stock.

I also need to get knitting - the only beanie I've ever been able to bring myself to wear has still not turned up, so I'd better make a replacement. And as of today, I have conceded that a knee rug, while en scooter, might actually be stylish and not embarrassing. Mainly because there is nothing sexy in hypothermia.

Today has certainly been the day when thoughts turn to overcoats...bloody hell the bite in the air outside.

I had the same problem a few years ago. Money for coat meant less money for heating. I got a US down coat. Warmer, suitable for impossibilities, suitable for my square shape, capable of fitting all sorts of things underneath and, most important of all, very cheap cos it was discount season for coats in the US. I don't know if it still is the latter, but Landsend is where I got my coat from, and it made such a big difference that 2 years later I bought a down dressing gown from them. It's magic for the chronic aches - diminishes them more than the heater does, too.

I'm thinking that you need a poncho!

I'm afraid I still feel a bit too embarrassed at the thought of that.

And also, I want something that doesn't need to be rearranged/taken off whenver I get out of the scooter, because I'm a vibrant, active, crip-about-town of course.
