Guess the ailment!



What ails a boy who has his feet in a big bowl of warm watery Epson Salts?

When I was small it was a cup of hot Bovril and some bread. These days it's a fruity Yoghurt with a luxury foot spa.

So, what is he suffering from? Dropsy? The Vapours? In-growing toe nails?

No, after a long day running on the beach his sandals had rubbed sores onto his feet, and out came the healing Epsom Salts. 

Do they work? No idea, but I suppose it can't do any harm. The Yoghurt works; that I do know!

  1. Epsom salts are just the thing for tired sore feet, no matter how old you are.

    1. Epsom Salts always sound like some fictional comical product to me.

  2. It is lovely to be pampered and someone as adorable as he is, probably gets a lot of that.

    That is a wonderful picture, Cro.

    1. I'm sure it's just the pampering that does the magic.

    2. Who is this cute litthe chap. He seems very concentrated on his yoghurt. Does he live à la Côte d'Azur where it's still time to run on the beach? For sore feet we use the "gros sel" , which normally we add to a winter pot au feu.

    3. He is a foundling from Finland, sometimes know as Francis.

      Here in France we never add sore feet to a pot au feu; only ever sore hands.

    4. Thanks for your ironic explanation. BTW in France you always add gros sel to a pot au feu but well you're a Brit. A foundling from Finland called Francis ,normally over there the trolls and gnomes doesn't look as cute.I will never catch what Brits call humour!!!

    5. Here in France we add Gros Sel to almost all cooking that requires salt. Sel Fin is reserved for the table.
