It will come as no surprise to you that my all time favourite thing to do is lounge around in my pyjamas with a blanket, chocolate and catching up with Netflix. And since those three minutes of warm weather have sodded off (praise a deity), I’ve pulled out my blankets and am very much ready for the chill of autumn.
As soon as there’s even the slightly nip of cold in the air, I’m freezing. I can’t regulate my temperature well and getting cold in my joints is absolute agony, so I try to stay as wrapped up as possible. And believe it or not, despite the frost causing havoc with my chronic illnesses, I much prefer it to being hot.
So, I thought I’d put together a list of absolute must-haves to stay warm and snuggly over the next few months. There’s three bedding sets because I love a duvet cover, and what’s better than getting into bed after a long, freezing cold day, pulling the blanket right up over your head and settling in for the night?
