Yeah, Soda Water with a slice of lemon in it is two thumbs fresh. I don't do caffeine anymore other than tea and I'm pissing far less.

We get 6 big bottles of fizzy water from Lidl for about £1.60, plop some ice in it and add a splash of Roses lime cordial for a quick homemade lime and soda. Bloody lush and hellova refreshing. It has to be Roses though. Despite being more than twice the price of supermarket own brand equivalent. Supermarket own brand lime is horrible.

Wow, I feel I wrote that post! You are bang on with Rose's, we've been through every other brand but it's just the best by such a long distance. It's expensive so I end up buying truckloads when it's on offer.

You also need to add the water first, then the lime. It's the complete opposite to any other cordial-based drink, but makes a big difference.

Having got increasingly stressed and down about lack of job interviews, being stuck in a city that is offering me less by the day and everyone seemingly getting on with their lives the way they want too, I just shaved all my hair off.

In a positive I do look like Hugh Jackman when he shaved his head to play Blackbeard so that's got.a laugh out of me for the first time in three days.

Turns out Trench Foot is still an actual thing.

 

Wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Forgive me if I'm wrong but is that not when the flesh on the foot starts decomposing?

How the hell have you managed to contract that???

It's decomposition of the foot following damage and breakdown to the capillaries, most commonly from prolonged exposure to cold (but not necessarily freezing) and damp conditions. 

I assume anyone who has exposure to those conditions, such as outside rural working or long term trips hiking,  without proper care could develop it. It's not a disease or bacteria you can wipe out, it's the body's reaction to its environment.

I work in wet coniditions for a fair amount of my job, then walk home over greenery for 2 miles.

If over a fortnight is fast you must still be on Biff and Chip. Empires fell quicker.
