Back Issues

Yesterday I cleaned the truck, It's a big truck therefore a lot of physical effort is required. Later I went and rode Phoebe in preparation for the dressage competition on Monday. I also spent an hour grooming her - and then another 45 minutes bent double using clippers on her lower legs so she no longer looks like a bog pony - but more like a dressage diva.

This morning my back is shouting at me. I just flung back the quilt in my normal way - ready to bound out of bed and face another fun-filled day - Oh alright then - what I mean is that I usually lift the quilt and get out of bed quite easily - but this morning? - Not so!!!!

It took me all of about 4 minutes to get my ridiculously aching body out of the pit. There was groaning and gnashing of teeth. A further minute of so to stagger downstairs, and then the exertion of flicking the switch on the kettle was too much and I had to sit down....seriously!! I've had two ibuprofen in a vain attempt to quell the pain just so that I can straighten up properly.

I'll let you know later if the discomfort passes :) In the meantime I am going to research comfy pants and flat shoes because I am clearly turning into Doris What's-hername who is 57 and totally, completely and utterly past it.

  1. I can't imagine you cleaning your car. Being the size you are you surely need a ladder to climb onto the seat. :-)

    How many pillows are you using these days to see over the steering wheel?
