The back pain has been easing off daily but today it came back with a vengeance - getting out of bed I had a terrible spasm which felt like a red hot knife being stuck into me! Ouch! Thankfully another hot compress and paracetamol have made it subside but not sure for how long. Hazel has now "caught" my back pain in her hip as she bent over to pick up the watering can it went and she's hobbly around like me now! Poor Archie thinks he's got the worst cranky parents ever! Creaky parents more like!
Today started out with the gas man coming to fix the washing machine - which he did in no time thankfully so at least we can wash the great heap of clothes thats been piling up. The "brushes" had gone apparently- Hazel said they looked like big graphite pencils and they just wear away from friction over time. Also Hazel fixed the vacuum cleaner with some newly washed filters - it had been sluggish for quite a while. So at least two mechanical thin gs are working again even if we're not!
