    We prefer microwaveable slippers.  My husband was asking for some in a shop, and the saleslady recoiled in horror at the idea of putting something you'd had your feet in, into something you use for food.  Never gave it a thought.

    What's wrong with socks, thicker as it gets colder, or leg warmers or even a rug when you're curled up on the sofa?

    Nowt wrong with thick socks and a fuzzy blanket Obelixx image. That's me every evening.  I draw the line at legwarmers though.... remind me of the TV show Fame image.  I'd feel obliged to do jazz hands when wearing them ? image.

    I have leg warmers from when I've had to be out in -15C and worse and ski socks weren't enough to keep the blood warm down my legs.  Very handy when I had a foot op in January and had bare toes in an orthopedic boot.   Not for public consumption but very comforting so I've kept them, just in case.

    Those shoes might give you a grip on steep, slippery steps - or kill you.

    Rotovator.

    Bought many years ago and still in the box. I think I thought I was becoming a farmer or something.

    I have a thick black plastic trowel that came with a gardening magazine.  (It might just have been a Gardeners World freebie) but what was basically  a thick wedge of plastic really would not dig into anything.

    It is probably still lying somewhere on the floor of  my "Wendy house".

     If it's the one I am thinking of then after  despising it for years, I found the end of the handle unscrews to reveal a calibrated dibber! Both bits are useful in the greenhouse only, as a scoop and dibber.

    My useless item was a hand held bulb planter that I am not strong enough to push into the ground (or my clay soil is too heavy) and it does not release the plug of soil afterwards either.
