Catherine’s Toe is not the name of some rocky peninsula we encountered on our coastal walk. It is, rather, one of five fleshy peninsulas on my daughter’s foot.
We have not been able to do much walking during the months of March and April. Poor Catherine developed a sore toe.
“Oh dear!” exclaimed the doctor. “Here’s some corn cream. It dissolves the hard skin and softens up the corn”.
Unfortunately, it was not a corn, but a verruca. The only thing the cream dissolved was the soft skin around the verruca, causing the flesh underneath to burst through in a manner that even Ridley Scott would have approved of.
Catherine’s verucca has now been frozen. We hope it is getting better and that we will be able to walk regularly again soon. In the meantime, we have struggled to find things to occupy us at home. One thing I have discovered in my new-found spare time is that Photoshop have an image resizing option that adds pixels to photographs. I have found out that this means I can zoom right in to the most interesting parts of photos – like veruccas!
