    Stood on a wasp, I thought I had stood on a big thorn or splinter to start with as it was a sharp pain then just throbbing and stingy/itchy for a few hours after. Not nice at all.

    I don’t think so I think for many it’s exercise that triggers it.

    Mine started when we moved into this house and I upped my daily step count to 25/30,000 for a few days. I think that that, combined with my gosh awful flat feet made me a dead cert to suffer from it

    @carly I’ve got totally flat feet too and the doctor said that would have contributed as there’s no ‘spring’ in my feet, or flippers as I should perhaps more correctly term them.

    @elly You could have a point about high heels as I don’t suppose my Nan’s generation wore them nearly so often as I used to (pre plantar fascitiis) or my mother’s generation. I only knew her when she was old, obviously, and she always wore lace up leather shoes with a small heel as anything else really hurt her feet. They did give you orthotics in those days too but they were hard, clear plastic things rather than the foam insoles we can buy cheaply today.

    Has this complaint always been so prevalent do we think or are we just better at recognizing and naming it these days? I’ve had it since moving house just under two years ago and it can be incredibly painful and make me wince some days, although it’s not as bad now I’ve been wearing orthotics for the past 18 months.

    Thinking back, my late Nan must have suffered similarly but she never gave it a name.

    Yeah “camping” in Calais in January, right… That sounds nice.

    Oh yeah and police are actually seizing their “camping” gear and are generally not funny people

    But it’s ok, they are economic migrants, whatever that is supposed to mean. They are lured from Eritrea or Syria (where they certainly lived comfortable lives, give or take war and/or dictatorship) by the prospects of bitcoin mining I am sure.

    Wax earplugs to block out noise? Do you need a new bed?

    I recently started feeling anxious about day to day things, not going as far as panic attacks but a sort of constant low level tense feeling. I’ve started listening to hypnosis recordings, downloaded on my kindle, aimed at tackling anxiety and confidence issues. I’m sure they are helping and I’m coping far better now in situations I found stressful. If nothing else they relax you so well if listened to at bedtime that you sleep really well!

    I had this with my mountain bike. A colleague who is a very keen cyclist (ie. cycles 100 miles before lunch at the weekend etc!) recommended I heighten the handlebars so I’m sitting more upright.

    He said it was due to core strength (or my lack of it!). He said another way to improve it was to sit upright on the bike with tiptoes on the ground then with your core muscles engaged, gently lean forwards to rest your hands onto the handlebars, but not to load them with the weight of your upper body but to use your core muscles to support your upper body.

    Sorry this probably doesn’t make too much sense but when I tried it, it did make a big difference!

    I used to use St Tropez but it’s not the cheapest but it does go on nicely and lasts ages, but I have been using the St Moritz everyday gradual tanning cream it’s only about £4 and I am quite impressed with it so I went and bought the tanning mouse which has a much darker effect and it was just as good, savers shops and tesco sell the range, my tips are use exfoliate whole body I put a light moisturiser on my elbows knees, hands and feet then definitely use a tanning mitt they are about £1 in savers best thing ever invented for fake tan.

    If I were you I would go for an gradual everyday cream to start as the effect is more subtle then once you get braver go for the one application tanning cream or mouse as the sudden dark effect can be a bit much if your not used to it.

    I don’t use online shopping because I like to pick my own items. I would be pretty annoyed if I was given something that I didn’t want or need when I paid for something else! Do you not get a refund for these substitutes?

    The main point of Trump is that he’s a racist. That’s why his base vote for him.
