Time for some more tips on keeping warm this winter! With all the snow we’ve been having, I might be using these tips myself. We’ve already looked at how keeping moving can help keep you warm, now we’ll look at food and how eating well can help you through these snow filled days.
Today I saw an advert for special "electric" insoles that slip into your shoes. They emit a safe electrical current to conduct heat, powered by batteries carried on the ankle. Haven't actually SEEN them (just the advert) - from Maplins - about £14.

you mean these?

they loom pretty good and I have to admit I'm tempted!
Yes, it's not a very good picture. The advert I saw showed soles that looked foil-like with circular coils.
Apart from these electric accessories, this winter I have decided to search for some solutions for keeping the entire home warmer while reducing the heat costs. Some of the most interesting things I found so far are some slim pillows for doors and some insulating roller blinds http://www.blindsuk.net/roller_blinds.html which prevent heat loss and the cold from entering the room through windows draughts.
