Not really a major issue but I'm wondering how people cope with returning to a place like England at the start of February as I will after three months in a hot country? Are their cheap options for picking up winter style clothes before heading home?

Nov/Jan/Feb is considered "cool season" by Thai standards, especially up north. So there will be some warmish clothing available in shops/markets, or just go to Tesco Lotus or Robinsons (department stores). You'll at least want a pully/jumper/sweater to cope with the aircon at the airport and during the flight, before hitting the UK weather on arrival.
I agree with Captain_Bob. If you plan on going into some highland areas anyway you'll want a pair of jeans and a fleece, so just keep them in the bottom of your rucksack and wear them to the airport on your departure.
Thanks for that. I hadn't thought about the mountains and I know how chilly they can be. Mentally prepared for the travels, not so sure I'm looking forward to coming home to a grey, wet, cold London and spending the next month in a seriously depressed state wondering why I've returned?!

I guess I could do a 'I'm 'ard as nails, me', but think I'd prefer a modicum of warmth however pathetic.
