Dressing for Winter

It's definitely getting colder, we do not have snow yet, more the pity really as the boys are still waiting to eventually use their sledges I bought YEARS ago!  We should really hop into the car and find somewhere with snow but we never quite get around to it, hoping instead the snow comes to us.  Despite not having snow the temperature is still dropping, its time to wrap up warm.  Being asthmatic I am finding it harder being out in the cold, its important I carry my inhaler and use a scarf to stop the cold air getting on my chest.

The boys are still eager to get outdoors though, although how long they will stay outside depends on how many layers I give them.

Its time for the vests, a new winter coat and ideally hats, scarf and gloves!  Raincoats do not offer enough warmth right now, its time to get something better insulated for comfort.  I really like the range at House of Fraser, plenty of choice to appeal to my discerning boys, as they are getting older they are voicing what they would prefer to wear and what designs/styles are acceptable.  I am lucky having two boys because I always get a second use out of any coat I buy, so quality is important as I want it to last for both of them.

I think with boys it’s important to top up on fresh air, as they are so full of beans!  So whatever the weather we will try and head outdoors, the dog appreciates a walk at the very least.  The boys usually grumble at first but once outside start playing and feeling pleased they were coaxed outdoors.  Since eldest got a stunt scooter he is more eager than usual, but only if I promise the skate park is our destination, parks are a good second and can have the same effect most of the time.
