Back ache. It eases from getting out of bed (I scream) to moving about.
This morning I got up early (I screamed), so as to be on the phone at 8a.m. to the surgery for a doctors appointment. It was engaged... But I did get through on the second attempt and nearly screamed with excitement.
Doctor prodded and poked. I have an x ray appointment tomorrow morning. But he nodded when I said, "Guess its old age." He gave me a prescription for some cream to apply and told me to carry on with paracetemol - for now. The cream has so many side effects I will wait for a diagnosis. I have managed without the cream till now.
So - upwards and onwards.
40 mph gusts. Battle on.
More pain relief. = Sit and watch the garden birds.
One of the many bully boys. A Starling. When the numbers increase so the little birds can't get near the feeders I apply a paint brush. Sharp rap on the window. Never fails. And the little birds know that and return to the feeders swiftly.
Blackbird. The other birds early warning system. When a Sparrowhawk is near.
Painting. = more pain relief. Very therapeutic. Almost finished these two.
And at the end of the day.
