My back has gone into spasm. It started on Monday afternoon and by Tuesday morning I was walking like a cripple. I've spent the last 36 hours flat on my back. Visit from the osteo last night has improved things only half my back is in spasm. It still hurts like hell and this blog is necessarily short because I can't sit here for very long.

Games, games, games

Stayed with friends in Sussex this weekend. We played lots of games and ate lots of food, pretty much what we usually do when we meet them! The weekend always follow the same routine and we've yet to tire of it.

Friday night - crib (me and Mike always win!)
Saturday monring, walk the lurchers and their furry friend, Teyha. Eat breakfast.
Saturday afternoon - Mah Jong - the highlight of the weekend!
Saturday evening - if we finish Mah Jong early enough, we follow it with a n other game. This weekend it was Texas Hold 'Em poker. I lost.
Sunday morning - walk the lutchers et al. Breakfast. Play Nom. Roast dinner. COme home and collapse in a heap.

The only differnce this weekend is that I woke up on Sunday morning streaming with cold. Not good as I have to attend a Board meeting tonight and stay alert enough to take minutes. This is not something I am looking forward to with a cotton wool head and a nost that thinks it's on my feet (running.....yes, I know, old joke).

The holiday that was....

...and has now disappeared into the dim and distant past already. We've been back a week already and I haven't stopped for a minute.

But it was a lovely holiday. Fantastic cottage, weather superb, everyday spent walking on a different beach with the Lurchers running around like loonies. Nothing exciting happened, which was just how I wanted it.

Can't wait for the next break.
