So Yesterday was a really long day at work I was really exhausted and could not wait for the weekend to begin (although it will be a working weekend for me – working on Saturday and Sunday at the pharmacy). I had been standing up pretty much most of the day (10 hours to be exact) and of course everyday throughout the week. Being behind a counter requires a lot of standing – unfortunately my pharmacy is quite small so even computer work I do I need to do standing up.
When the clock strikes 7 pm I am always dying to go home, have a shower and raise my legs! Yesterday my feet were really swollen – they looked like two melons (not a pretty sight i assure you) apart from which they felt heavy and I had an ache in the back of my legs, running from my ankles up to my hips.
The last thing I wanted is to put on heels and go out in the evening- but it was a Friday night, and a nice warm summer evening – and I had plans to go to a bar in Sliema for some drinks with a friend – but I’m definitely not going to a bar in my orthopaedic granny shoes heheh
So I thought about bailing on my friend and resting my feet. But before messaging her I decided to have a shower and whilst showering I started thinking am I going to spend all my Fridays at home because my legs feel tired? I mean this means I’m going to practically have no social life anymore. Then I decided to go back up to the pharmacy and get a pack of Venis Gel. Ive sold so many of them and never really tried it myself.
I got back home – plonked on the sofa and rubbed my feet from my toes up to my thighs, I got a sort of tingling feeling and I felt my feet cool down. I felt this pleasant cold effect and my feet instantly felt lighter. And I managed to fit my feet into my pretty pink sandals.
Well, I managed to go out and have a fun night out – and actually ran into a really cute guy who bought me a drink . For those who have the same issue with working long hours on your feet – or even just suffer from swollen and heavy legs I really recommend you try Venis and it will save your weekend. Its available as a gel and as a spray and you can even carry it with you in your handbag as the size is nice and compact
When I woke up this morning before I was off to work again at 8 am i reapplied Venis – my feet feel happy and energised to start another day at work! This evening i will be off to beer fest in another pair of pretty shoes to dance the night away with my girl friends Will keep you updated about our evening and will surely re apply Venis before the fun evening
