Plasters – Glastonbury Festival advice!

Those sticky things you put on yourself when the skin is torn, blistered, grazed or cut. Or just for some sympathy.

This is my review on plasters. Not so strange if you’re donning a pair of ex-army boots this summer that you only dig out for festivals. Actually this review could be quite useful for all manners of new footwear.

Yes this isn’t the sort of review you’d probably find in normal people’s websites, but it will be useful for people heading to Glastonbury, or indeed any other festival where you have to walk for miles every day. Or indeed anyone who likes hiking, rock climbing or skipping.
It isn’t an extensive review, but I went running the other day for the first time in exactly a year. (I do this before Glastonbury every time in an attempt to lose weight in case it is hot enough for little clothes (usually matching pink bra and tutu)) However I wore the same trainers as last year, which I have worn every day as slippers since; and thus got massive blisters on the soles of my feet. The following day I wore my most cushioned pair of shoes, which proceeded to give me blisters on the side of my ankles; so the day after that I wore flip flops, which gave me blisters on the top of my feet. Not good when heading for a festival where you walk 3 miles carrying everything on your back between the car and chosen campsite.
So during those few days I have been wearing plasters and the review is thus: Sainsbury’s waterproof plasters are completely and utterly shite. Do not ever bother buying these; they have absolutely no sticking power and have begun falling off on one side before you’ve finished peeling off the backing on the other side. Boots fabric plasters are slightly better. They will probably be ok on cuts on the skin that get little or no friction; such as the face. Sainsbury’s fabric plasters have triumphed. Very stretchy and flexible fabric and sticky and sturdy enough to survive even the rubbiest of rubby shoes. I recommend these plasters highly. And they are not too sticky so that the pain factor when peeling off again is actually relatively low (relative to the tape they put over cotton wool after blood tests). Just right!

Oh yeah, also, from past experience, those Barbie waterproof plasters are rubbish too.

Health,

Making a social outdoor dining area
September 16, 2018
We have been dragging our heels for ages over buying a new set of outdoor furniture. Our old wooden table and chairs are well and truly rotting away. We have also had it in our minds to build a verandah at the back of the house, leaning against the kitchen wall. However, each spring has come along and we’ve ended up spending any spare money we’ve had on a holiday instead. So it hasn’t happened, but the idea was still there, and it made a choice on the garden furniture difficult to make…..

Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..

Living with hypothyroidism – blame, balance, and being kind to yourself
May 24, 2018
This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
