I think it's dreadful that the farming community have to be worrying about Foot and Mouth outbreak again. And the poor farmers have had to endure postings from the Govt Chief Veterinary Officer Debbie Reynolds. Having said, that when I read the symptoms I'm a bit concerned that's what I'm suffering from - not hay fever after all. I'm not saying here that I am bovine.
I've collected my new orthotics and have been told to wear them in, slowly and gradually. They feel so comfortable I don't want to take them off. But I have old muscles and ligaments which will have to adjust to the new positioning of my feet/ankles/legs/ hips and so on - ad infinitum.
I also feel sorry for our new PM. Just started a holiday in Dorset and this latest crisis. Talk about a baptism of fire. I'm just so relieved we haven't had to cope with touchy, feely, gulping bravely , stiff upper lipped, Tony Blair.
Meanwhile lets just keep our fingers crossed for all the farmers that this is soon sorted and resolved as quickly as possible.
