Anyone else overpronate when they stand/walk?
Gotta have orthotic inner soles made, the guy mentioned it has a chance of resolving itself with them but not convinced.

Yeah, I'm supposed to be getting othotics as well, right leg is significantly longer than left and also overpronate on right foot. Been putting it off because I want to get some clarks DB's and the insoles can't be taken out of them Sad. Also they're saying i'll have to have insoles made for my football boots which does not sound fun.

Some help on sending stuff from abroad! What's the best way (or is there a way) I can get someone in the US to send a parcel (some new headphones) without being stuck with taxes on this side of the pond?

Hunter.

If they're too expensive there are a decent range of brands here.

Tell them to mark as a "gift", with a value below $20, anything over £15 you get charged.

Would imagine they carry out random checks on "gifts" but its probably lottery chances of getting caught out. Always been fine for me.

Any financial types recommend somewhere to invest at the minute? Have a post office bond maturing and they will only offer me 1.8% for the next year. About 13k and don't mind tucking it away for the next coupler of years.

Just to get it on second page.
