Dark December Nights.

Italian Art.

Slept well again last night, glad that my not being able to sleep pattern has been broken and I can drift off to sleep once again without too much problems.

Have been thinking about going out and realise now that I need to get organising my clothes, so that I am dressed warmly.

Have been looking for clothes online, so far everything I have seen has been horrible, apart from a couple of sites.

Was sent a link to a site that looked really good, found some nice looking thermal trousers.


Sadly can not buy the trousers as you need a credit card, but have found a couple that I can pay with PayPal.

Will have a closer look at their products; plan to ask Marianne whether she could make me a couple of trousers.

Maybe she can adapt some of the clothes that I have, might be worthwhile having a go

Saw a great site http://www.izzycamilleri.com/adaptableclothing/index.html it is a Canadian site, a very nicely laid out site.

They really seem to have the handicapped person’s needs at heart, and have designed good, accessible clothes.

Got sent a link to


They have a couple of trousers that I like the look of, have sent them a mail asking for method of payment.

I also have a list to check through, hope to find sites that are closer to me and where I can pay with PayPal.


It is just 15 minutes to 5 pm and already it is getting dark, there was a rumour of sunshine just before the light started to fade.

Starting to like these dark nights again, am looking forward to our anniversary on 19 December.

Blimey married 8 years already, remember the day very well and the brilliant party we had.

Happy memories and happy days looking for warm clothes to go out in comfort.

And the Winter Equinox, shortest day and longest night on December 21 and 22, always like that time of year.

Oh I love December too! The best thing about the equinox is that it starts to get light again, slowly, but surely!!!
I hope you can find some nice warm clothing online!

Hi Rain,
Thanks for letting me know about the blogger problems.
Funnily enough as soon as your comments arrived I could finally publish Nancy's too.

Hi Herrad, sorry I have not been by-wrapping up fall and decorating for Christmas here. I am so not a winter person. I always look forward to the days getting longer. I am one of those people who get depressed without light.
I like those pants with the flannel lining for winter.

Just wanted to check in and let you know that I'm still reading your blog regularly.

I don't mind December. The change in seasons is nice, and Christmas is special. It's the end of winter that sometimes gets to me...February and March.

Have a good day.
