By some distance the Christmas present you’ve got the most use out of by January 2nd is the pair of fabulously comfortable merino/silk thermal vests your sister-in-law gave you…..even more hours use than the Kindle Fire HD the banksman got me (well, depending on how you define the work “use” – obviously I’m just wearing the vests in a passive way – whereas I’m interacting with the tech). But I must highly recommend Bella di Notte (www.belladinotte.com). I am properly warm and they are not at all scratchy. Who’d have thought a girl could get quite so razzed up about a wool vest. My Granny would have been amazed.
