In order to work outdoors in the middle of winter you need certain things. Things like:

Plaid Flanelette Shirt
Sleeves must be rolled up to the elbows at every available opportunity. Unfortunately my forearms aren't yet substantial enough to fully do it justice but this shouldn't be too much of a problem on account of the fact that vine pruning is the other daily workout for your wrists and forearms.

Warm Hat
It is a well known fact that the warmer the hat the more retarded it makes you look. Ear flaps are an added bonus for elite spastic chic.

Wellington Boots (Gumboots)
Traditionally used by the Welsh to keep sheep still.

Safety Goggles
Ideally wait until you nearly take your eye out with a wayward vine thus causing blurred vision in one eye and a feeling similar to that of a permanant eyelash stuck under your eyelid before requesting a pair of these. It adds to the Seasonal Work Experience.

Won't stop you getting blisters or ease the pain that will wrack your torn wrists but will complete that "mum dressed me this morning" look.

Waterproof Jacket And Trousers
Make sure they leak. It lets you know you're still alive.

Not necessary. Leave this in the shed for the dogs to chew on, by the time you finish this job that's all it'll be good for.

Twelve days down, only... *counts*... erm... *drools a bit*... what was I saying?
