What I'm thinking

January 01 2020

Thoughts from Garry Burrows who mostly lives outside

  1. Keep warm: wear thermal underwear. I’ve also got on a waterproof coat, jacket, bodywarmer, two jumpers and two T-shirts.
  2. Stay dry: If you’re outside sit or lie on thick cardboard and layers of newspaper to absorb the wet.
  3. Look after your shoes: when trainers get wet, they smell. I put mine in the washing machine at a day centre (or a friend’s) and that sorts them out.
  4. Number one vitamin for alcoholics: is thiamine (B1). Your body can’t make thiamine, but it can absorb it through meat, grain and nuts/seeds as well as fortified foods (eg, breakfast cereal and bread). If you are alcohol dependent you may be prescribed thiamine to avoid wet brain. No one wants wet brain.
