Mothers Day and Feet

In the UK, it is mother’s day today. On Friday, I went around my university city with my mom. We went to cafes, the arcade, a bit of window shopping and stayed out until 9pm.

I introduced mom to her first mocktail and we learned to never eat at Five Guys.

Five Guys is a fast food place like KFC, McDonalds and Burger King, they style their restaurants to imitate America and make “Little” versions of the burger.

The problem we had with them was that their vegetarian burger was not a burger. it was a salad on a seeded bun. I’m sorry, but to me, it is only a burger if there is a patty in the middle. Surely it can’t be that hard to use a bean patty or something else – like the other fast food restaurants do.

I personally didn’t like my bacon and cheeseburger either. The patty was a thin slice as if trying to cut the patties into as small as possible. I did order the “Little” versions, but I thought that was the bun being smaller and still have enough meat on the patty. The bacon tasted awful too.


We had eaten at another place earlier in the day, they took an hour to serve us but the fish fingers, chips and peas were nice.

The Arcade we went to distributes tickets, it’s the first one I’ve seen in the UK that does that and I think it’s pretty cool. Instead of putting pennies in the penny drop you play games for tickets and get the prize that you want. It was great fun and there was a little cafe joining to it – we should have gone there for dinner.

It was a nice day, but by the end, my weaker leg had had enough and my special aid sock had pinched my skin.

Mom told me to soak them in a bowl. I don’t know why this never occurred to me before because I know that a bath helps me with the aches and pains I wake up with.

She also said to add some shower cream to the bowl to make the muscles relax more. I did and after about 30-45 minutes it had made a massive difference.

All you need is a bowl of hot water with something that creates a bit of bubble.

My legs still felt it yesterday but it was worth it. I’m going to put that on my PIP diary as I am now being forced by the government to apply for it.

  1. I’m glad you had a good day with your mom, but sorry to hear that you’re going to the PIP process as well. I hope it goes well for you. <3
