It really has been as well. It didn't help that after my knee finally healed that I woke up Tuesday with a niggling back pain - decided (like a loon) to ignore it and clean out the conservatory, come Wednesday morning - serious back pain, hardly able to move. So Wed was spent on painkillers, with a heat mat and lots of rest. Thursday - J had a friend to play most of the day and I ended up spending a lot of time on my feet - so by the end of the day my back was killing me. Friday I tried to rest it but stuff needed my attention - so today I am attempting to rest and not rely on painkillers. I am getting fed up though - it's been weeks - no salsa, no yoga, can't even walk the dog - so perhaps a rest this weekend will solve it and next week I can resume living! (Sorry to whine I'm sure others suffer much more - but this is my blog and I have to bleat off somewhere.)
It's hot and sunny today - maybe even too hot (I'm a winter lover) - so I might just chill out, knit, read listen to music and let M nurse me (he's a great nurse).
J has had a good week - a Knitty friend sent him a box of books - he's in heaven - he's not started reading them but the anticipation of so many new books - you can just see it. I reckon he'll have problems deciding what to read first. Together we are reading 'The Indian in the Cupboard' - such an exciting book for a boy and educational as well. On his own he is re-reading 'The Land of Green Ginger' - I just get such a buzz from his love of books :0)
What else? Well I could rant about snails - but what can I say? Nothing works for long - they have missed the beer traps, circumnavigated the pellets and eaten 75% of my broccoli and cabbage crop. Someone tell me what good they do? I hate killing things - I have friends who collect them and free them elsewhere (anyone else hear that cuckoo?) I think snails have homing devices. Ma treads on them and sprinkles salt on them - ehew. I thought maybe a meeting and a leaflet campaign might get through to their reasonable side - maybe not? *shrug* oh well snails need to eat too.
In other news - we go away this week for a couple of days. Grandma (Ma) is animal sitting - better feed the spiders before we go as she draws the line at that. Next week my baby is 8 - where has the time gone? He's a long skinny Dr Who-aholic - who even knows how many nobbles a dalek should have - scary.
That's it - dull and boring as it is - sorry - well off to rest my back (again).
