A pain in the back!
I am in agony! Today I managed to put my back out. How, I don’t know but I managed to do it in between walking home from my daughter’s school and sitting on the sofa when I got home because when I stood up to get a cup of tea, I got half way before realising that my knees were buckling under me . So I am now shuffling around looking like The Hunchback of Notre Dame or Igor depending on your own preference. I tell you, it isn’t easy walking like that…
Before you tell me I am supposed to sit down or lie down and rest, not walk around, I have tried. Actually I have done a remarkably good job of lying around. AND it has given me a wonderful excuse to do some blogging 🙂 Unfortunately, there comes a point where one has to get up and, aside from the making of tea bit, I don’t really think I need to mention my reasons for having to get up!
My daughter, being a little older now and a little more helpful was more than willing to assist me in my hours of need. She made me a cup of tea (milk microwaved with some tea leaves in it). She was so pleased with her effort and it was hot so I drank it. It tasted like warmed milk 🙂 Then she got her bath ready. Well, I got called for that after about two minutes because the water was cold and I had to fix it. But she tried and that’s the main thing – and she laid her clothes out very nicely! What a star (takes after me, you know!)
My husband has, of course, been just as helpful collecting my daughter from school, going to get some groceries, buying supper, rubbing my back… 😀
So despite my still having to hobble around the place, I am glad to know I have a couple of willing helpers in my midst and I can only hope that as my daughter gets older the help will increase rather than decrease!
Now, where’s that cup of tea?
