For the past week my feet have been swelling really badly. Like 9 months pregnant, been on feet all day type swelling. I am definitely not pregnant, what else could cause it?

I have an appointment with my GP on Tuesday so will discuss then also

Dangerous to put that up here. The list for causes of swollen feet is huge, but most of the won't apply to you, without knowing your full medical history, and someone will give you an answer that will freak you out. Go and see your GP, and make it earlier than Tuesday if you're worried.

Drink 2-3 litres of water a day and keep your feet elevated until you see your GP.

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
