I know - I have an overnight stay in London on Monday which has been amazingly difficult to arrange from a domestic point of view (DH chronically ill, one ds to get to and from school on two days). If the snow returns I can't leave them in case DH can't get out of the house on his wheelchair.
Shall have to wear my padded ski trousers tomorrow then. But the waist is now too tight so can't get the button done up. All that wrapping up takes me half the time my little dog's walk is, and then taking it all off again at home. I'm worn out.
