dear diary :: a melancholy message

I find myself in a rather ungainly, almost prostrate positon of late. Although, thankfully not face down. A rather painful episode of a strained, maybe even sprained, back has siezed me in its grip and I am best when lying quite motionless. It happened yesterday just as I was gearing up into a slightly brisker mode now the hibernating season is beginning to retreat.

DH might be relieved that he can attempt the housekeeping and cooking without any interference from me.

Until normal posture and wellbeing resume these few paltry words and images are all I can manage….meanwhile I shall entertain myself with a little light You Tube watching.

Back soon as my back is mended! x

  5. How disappointing and annoying for you. Hopefully a bit of rest and then gentle movement will heal things. Backs can often be a sign of stored up tension. Wishing you a speedy recovery and not too much anxious checking of what’s going on in the kitchen!

  7. Oh, you poor sweet – I was thinking yesterday it had been a few days since you posted. I do hope you fel better soon.

    I have had episodes in the past which I would have described exactly the way you have – and I mention it because one thing I find absolutely marvelous which gives much relief is a Sciatica video from Adriene Mischler. If you’re not familiar with her, you can find a wonderful range of free videos here:
