It's not too cold or unpleasant to go out for walks in autumn or

societies most people have no idea how to dress so as to be
comfortable out of doors in inclement weather.
OK, I'll get some exercise.
I got a bit of exercise yesterday and tinkered with

With respect to keeping feet warm in winter an interesting thing has

It's because I took up wearing sandals many decades ago as a way of
trying to cure a skin fungus infection in my feet. It not only worked,
it seemed to improve my general foot health so much I kept up the
sandal wearing and found some really good tough comfortable
sandals. As the years passed I discovered that the autumnal date at
which cold feet made me stop wearing sandals got later and later.
And when I do need to wear boots and socks in order to tramp around in
snow I can quite happily just wear one pair of socks and my feet stay
warm. Whereas before I would have to wear wear thicker warmer boots
and at least two socks and still get cold feet.
Of course wearing sandals is not a good idea if diabetes has reduced

might get into your sandal and trodden into your sole without you
feeling the injury. That had started happening to my feet in the last
year or so before diagnosis, although I didn't realise how bad it had
got until the podiatric diabetic assessment. But since diagnosis and
reducing my post meal BG spikes by diet my feet have recovered their
I'm hoping warmer feet means improved blood circulation in the feet
which is something to bank against possible later diabetic or age
