Feet up

Have been told I have to have my feet up for a few hours a day due to the swelling ankles, I didn't find it comfortable sitting with my feet on a stool and didn't fancy sitting on the bed during the day. I can't afford one of those lovely reclining chairs nor do I have the room for one so I told my grey matter to get on it's bike and come up with an idea which it did. I have now ordered a nice reclining garden chair with a rising foot rest. I can use this all evening and fold it up and put it in the bedroom during the day. Result I hope!

I have been told to wear support knee highs. Not particularly glamorous but they do the job, and they are covered by trousers. I find it hard to elevate my legs all the time, particularly if I am using the laptop. Think the garden chair a good idea. Some wag told me to keep my legs higher than my heart!!!

A nice SAD lamp with a sun lounger and it does not make an impact on life when it is cold and damp going out from the house. Please send us a postcard with news of the holiday at home.
