My back is much better now, the pain has virtually gone, stomach muscles no longer in spasm and I can stand upright. Still quite stiff when I get up in the morning, or when I've been sitting for a while, but it all loosens up once I get going, the chiropractor has worked wonders. Thanks for all the comments - Rachel, yes he is easy on the eye! but frankly, he could look like the back end of a bus for all I care - he's done my back a power of good. Besides, I don't actually see that much of him, seeing as I lie on my front with my face in the dip in the couch, with him working on my back ;-)
We haven't had much of the rain that other parts of the country seem to be having plenty of....it's been forecast but clearly the rainclouds don't read the forecast, as they keep skipping past us! We've had the odd very brief light shower, but not enough to fill the water butt or give the garden a good soaking. We've not had any prolonged hot sun either - yes we have sun, interspersed with cloudy periods, and it's certainly not cold.....the weather's just a bit boring recently though!
We're having plenty of courgettes and strawberries now, some onions, the carrots are just about ready - oh, and masses of rhubarb. Most other things are very slow to get going this year though, the lack of any sustained hot sun or heavy rain showers seems to be slowing everything down. Oh - the blackcurrants are about ready for harvesting, must get out there and pick them before the birds eat them all.
That's about it really, having a quiet pottering weekend. Oh, got a BT engineer coming between 8.30 and 9.00 am tomorrow - yes, a Sunday! Amazing! What's even more amazing is that OH only spoke to BT on Wednesday, when they agreed yes there is a fault on our line and an engineer would come probably at the end of the month! I just hope he turns up......
