Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise

Hello there!

To moisturise my legs I've been using Vaseline's Aloe Vera Light Moisturiser. But recently I found Dr Organic's Moroccan Argan Oil Body Lotion ( to be excellent. It does have a strong smell however which may not be something you'd like.  But I actually like the smell.

I find that the moisture lasts more than a day. So practically I can miss a day without worrying about it.
But it is quite expensive at £7.99. But it is worth it.

Anyway, that's it for now. I'll write more later.

Pain, pain and more pain

I haven't written anything lately mainly because I've been experiencing excruciating pain. The garments on my right leg regularly collect down to my knee. This causes the skin behind to sore and angry.  If left unattended become a graze or possibly a wound.

Well it became a wound quite quickly. So I had to get my big tub of Sudocrem out!

At work, it was regular and long visits to the loo.  Usually it is to let the wound out in the open for some relief. After 10 minutes then it is back to pulling my garments and getting back to work. Thankfully the folk at work are understanding, which helps a lot.  But the constant worry and pain has been giving me headaches.

I've been able to have a couple of lazy Saturdays, thanks to my family. This went a long way to helping the wound heal.

After a fortnight things are finally back to normal. Things are manageable now.

Happy New Year - Goodbye 2015 and Hello 2016 and Travel Tip!

Hello there,

It's been a long time since I wrote something. I always wanted to include a picture with every post but that has prevented me to write anything. So I decided to write without including pictures, unless they need it of course.

This new year, I was fortunate to spend it away from home. But staying away from home always poses problems. How could I ensure my legs are elevated? Could I even elevate them? Would the "hosts" like my peculiar requests?

So I decided to go "low-key" and wear my garments to bed. I thought that would be the most easiest and "unobtrusive" way of ensuring good health of my legs. I wouldn't need to bother anyone.

Normally I wear two garments on each leg, Ven Dur Level 3 and Goldpunkt Level 3. So I decided to wear just the Ven Dur as that gives the most effective compression at the lower leg and it is comfortable enough on its own.

After two nights - I have to say wearing garments to bed has been a success. So from now on, if I have to stay somewhere for a short period like one to two nights then I'd wear comfortable garments to bed.  I don't think my legs can handle days in a row in garments.

I hope that helps!
