The winter cold is beginning to nip your ears and gnaw your toes. Time to order some of Yuli Somme’s Foot Felts — incredibly warm, snug insoles for your shoes or boots. Here at the GFG-Batesville Shard, where austerity measures forbid us from turning on the heat until evening, we swear by them. Honestly, they’re brilliant. At just £6 a pair they’re very affordable. They are also, as you might expect of Yuli, compostable when they wear out. And what better way to toast your toes than with offcuts of shrouds? One undertaker gave them to her entire family as Christmas presents. Buy em here.
Up in Yorkshire James Hardcastle of The Carriage Master is ready to help out funeral directors and people arranging their own funeral when the snows fall – as they will – and hearses are reduced to slithering idiots. He has, available for hire, Range Rover Vogues that’ll get you to the iciest crematorium on time, or up the track of the most inaccessible natural burial ground.
