Plantar Fasciitis : Hotter Shoes

Some days, I struggle to walk down the stairs when I wake up, I have a foot condition called Plantar Fasciitis .  I do it, but very slowly, taking each step carefully and painfully.  Its something I don’t really mention on the blog, as most of the time I’m absolutely fine, but then it gets triggered and I unfortunately spend months with my feet hurting. I find it so frustrating, and above all annoying.

Stupidly (I now realise) I joined a running club a few weeks ago.  It had been so long since I’d had a flare up, I thought I’d be fine.  I’d forgotten to be honest how much it hurt to walk when I do get it.  Two days after the run, I was ok, then the next morning wham, I got out of bed, and that familiar feeling was there.

HP Envy 5530 Printer : and never running out of ink again!

I’m sure you’ve seen the adverts.  I know I have, and was extremely intrigued by the concept of buying a HP (Hewlett Packard) printer and never running out of ink again.  Well all this week I’ve been testing out the HP Envy 5530. Now I am a frustrated printer, as it always seems to be that we are run out of ink when me most need something to be printed off. Homework, forms we need to fill out, and deadlines that need to be met.  I’ve lost count actually, it’s as if the ink evaporates?  I also think that buying ink is extremely expensive, so was keen to know if this scheme would work for us and save money.
