    Not sure if I'm going to get told off for this since I'm not sure why the last one migrated, but...

    Post your irritations!

    Its on just one leg (on the bone) and the pain doesn't subside when resting now. Another night I was awake with pain. SS are usually on both and flare up when doing the activities that aggravate them . I think the work shoes which I wear and we are not allowed to wear different ones don't help. I love to wear insoles, but in the winter, need to wear two pairs of socks as its freezing. Two pairs and insoles are too tight. Next size up in the shoes are like boats! Then my work's floor is tiles similar to this

    I did see a podiatrist aged up to 12 as got flat feet and walked at a way that the outer edges of the heel of shoes wore out fast. The insoles were made from rigid plastic which were about half the length of my feet. I got blisters where the insoles ended in the middle of my feet. Plus useless in hot weather - when we had it!

    A podiatrist may well be able to help you a lot more. Things have moved on since you were 12, new materials have been developed. My dad was near crippled with back ache, caused by a shift in gait due to the weight of the gear he carried as a police officer( battery pack, truncheon etc) . A slight raise in one shoe sorted him

    When you are resting, try an ice pack, a bag of frozen peas along the shin

    What's a Twizzler?

    Isn't that something made by Bernard Matthews and banned from school canteens?

    I couldn't even have any dinner last night. But it does serve me right!!

    I went on the Daily Fail website to have a hate read, and I swear it's gotten even worse. I used to be able to spend a while reading braindead celebrity articles and finding out about all the new things that give you cancer, but I just can't enjoy it any more. It's like they've turned the vitriol dial up to 100. They might as well just live stream a puppy being kicked in the face and be done with it.

    Son number 2 annoyed me yesterday. I left work early to go and pick him up from home with a load of rubbish for the tip - I wanted to get there before it closed. On the way he let me know we had run out of dishwasher tablets. I had previously bought a huge box of the from JTF which lasted over a year. I said we could pop to the Co-op on the way back and get some more. I mentioned that I was happy they had gone because they were unwrappy ones - which annoyed me intensely (irrational I know). So we go to the tip, go to the Co-op-, he runs in to get coke and dishwasher tablets - COMES BACK WITH UNWRAPPY ONES!

    Seriously - did we not just discuss how much they annoyed me? I have actually washed the dishes by hand rather than unwrap a tablet!

    Do I win the "Most First World Problem Ever" prize?

    "Your order has been despatched" Yay!
    ..."Via Hermes" Well that's a load of online shopping I won't be seeing anytime soon then. Might as well have strapped the parcel to the back of a senile badger and sent it off in to the world.

    They're awful. I ordered some clothes and a duvet from Matalan. The clothes were in one packet, the duvet in another, dispatched at exactly the same time. The clothes came reasonably quickly, but the duvet ended up being routed to the wrong depot and took 2-3 days longer. How does that even happen?

    TSB doesn't let you close bank accounts online (or if it does, they hide it well). Lloyds does, though. I feel like they should have the same functionality since they're basically the same bank.

    The last time I had something delivered by Hermes it took the courier TWO WEEKS to manage to find my house. I live on an easily accessible, well sign posted terrace of houses so how in the hell he couldn't find it I will never understand. I'd ordered a dress for a particular occasion and by the time it finally arrived the event had passed, and I posted it straight back (via royal mail, of course )

    I just discovered that I've accidentally bought the most awkward ready meal in existance (I don't need free from stuff, I had a voucher). Part of it needs to be cooked in the oven, part of it needs to be done in the microwave. That's what I get for not reading the instructions carefully--I just saw microwave instructions and thought it was microwaveable.

    You can do all of it in the microwave, though.

    It's only if you are using the oven to cook the main part, that you need to heat the sauce in the microwave.
    If you want to use the oven, you could always just pour the sauce over it, in the oven, 5 mins before end of cooking time, etc.
