Good news and a recommendation
First up - congrats to Clair and Bee on their engagement! Yippeeee!!! How's that for a birthday present?

Second up - foot pads. They are fantastic! Allow me to elucidate (I promise I'll clean up afterwards!)

You can get these foot pads from any good independent health shop. They look a bit like tea bags that you stick to the soles of your feet at night, and then let them detox you while you sleep. Hippy mumbo-jumbo? No - they actually work! Don't ask me how, but they work, and that's the beauty of them.

The first lot I tried were based on some special Oriental mushroom, while the lot I am using now are based on a Korean wood vinegar. It's clean and white when it goes on, yet dark and sticky when you come to taking it off in the morning, due to them drawing out the toxins via your feet. The benefits? Well....
  • Deeper, more satisfying sleep.
  • The ability to get up in the morning without having to pry your eyelids open with a fork.
  • Going to work with an unbelieveable spring in your step.

They are pricey - £30 for 20 (10 days worth) - but they work wonders.

My karaoke performance of the 1980 Squeeze hit. Recorded at the Jeremiah Bullfrog in Mill Hill. Mutley hosts the karaoke every Sunday evening, though on this night it was hosted by Tom Cannon.
