Road testing ‘Toasti-Toes’

Found these little gems on the counter at the chemist today. The forecast is for a wet and miserable weekend, so I will give them a burl. Just a touch worried about reviews of people’s feet getting roasted. And I love that warning reads “Chemical foot warmers activated by oxygen. Burn risk,  maximum temperature can exceed 46°C.”

So for all those who push through winter with cold and numb extremities, I’ll let you know how they go. Here’s hoping the oxygen flow in my cycling shoes under booties is minimal…


Snow white

To cap off a hard week of training, Bleeksie and I headed for the hills again yesterday. This time, we found snow! It seems the winter sun couldn’t melt the snow which fell on the Brindabella Ranges last week. Thanks for the company, the photo and the blog title Bleeksie 🙂


It has been a freezing week in Canberra, with morning temperatures nearly all below zero, and Thursday dropping to -6°C! Bring on Spring, only one more month to go.

Also, how awesome are my new pink gloves? Love!
