Hi Shrinking Violet,

I too have suffered plantar Fasciitis   Was once in comany when the subject came up and a surgeon of great renown almost cried reciting the pain he suffered.  He blamed years of standing on concrete operating floors.

I am blessed with a physiotherapist in the family and she told me not to use a rolling pin but a glass bottle filled with ice cold water, that was the right size for my foot. Also she "lent" me what looked like a  whoopee cushion like a hedgehog that I had to roll my feet on.

i also took up Pilates and got my back and hips straight which has, of course, helped my feet!

good luck, it really doesn't last forever , take heart!

I love my country and heart stopping beauty of it all. I think it depends on your mood which landscape is favourite for the day!

equally, there are real beauty spots in England Ireland and Wales

We got the last of the cutting back done this morning. Many plants will need split this spring. this was our 10th growing season and it is much overdue! New fruit cage all done and if course I am desperate to plant but I shall be patient

heading off to good friends in Drymen, a lovely village on Loch Lomond, for a night of overindulgence (we stay over)  they are very doggie so we all go.  Hoping it is not a frosty night or the deer scents will be up and my two will be off! 

have a nice Saturday night
