Honestly, I have 2 duck down jackets, one duck down gilet, 3 other gilets, 5 coats of various descriptions, a huge pile of thick chunky sweaters, a huge pile of sweaters and wool jumpers. Tights in thick wool, thick nylons, thin ones and more. And socks with about 10 thermal pairs to use. Throw in waterproofs, 3 pairs of wellies and waterproof jackets then yeah, I have masses of stuff.
I am a country girl. Lived and worked on a farm for many years, lived rural long after that. We didn't have central heating and so layering and wrapping up from October onwards till the end of March was the norm.
Yes,the thing to remember if you are about to come here soon,is that the quality and choice of clothes is not as good as back home,so bring all you can.Also bring your winter clothes if poss,as it really does get cold here for quite a few months.
