I know, a really cheerful topic for a Saturday morning.

But a bit of help needed, as this is feeling like a threat to my happiness. After 25 years of trouble free walking my little tootsies are getting a bit hammered. Not aided by the chemo four years ago which has left me with "no sense and no feeling" in my toes and some veeeery strange toe nails. And now I can feel some pain which may well be the start of a bunion on one foot. A bit of pain in the area where bunions grow and my next toe getting a bit of overlap tells me I'm in trouble. And when I go to buy boots and the staff ask "how does that feel" I have to say - "absolutely no idea" - which doesn't help and can become expensive!

A lovely podiatrist is coming to my house on Monday to talk to me about my feet. Hopefully she will advise I can keep them.........:-)

But seriously, anyone else got problems of this nature and found solutions. In particular keen to hear if people have tried Whalley Warm and Dry service as they seem to have a good fitting service. And any makes of boots people with buions have found useful. I think my fabric Meindle boots which got shrunk after getting wet may be the culprits (although I did love them so....)

Cheers everyone, happy walking.
