Something Snapped


My lunchbox has stayed on top of the cupboard today. Mr Bun always packs my lunch for me on work days. Today was a work day, but my lunchbox and I didn't leave home. Yesterday something went snap with my back and I can barely walk, let alone drive. So I had to call in sick, which wasn't great for all the work I'm supposed to do, but it turned out fine and dandy for my pile of knitting and crochet.
I propped myself up with plenty of cushions and cosied under a blanket. Clicked on Murder on the Orient Express on the iplayer and settled down to make the sleeves for Eldest Bun's jumper. I'm determined to finish it before the winter's over.

I also had all my pencils and books handy so I could jot down some ideas and check patterns.


I'm walking like a duck with constipation (how I imagine one would walk I guess) so it was pretty difficult to get about today. Lovely then to have all that knitting time and not be able to do anything else for a change.


Hope I get nursed properly this evening as I feel the need for Hot Chocolate and eating cosy by the fire.

  4. Poor you! I know how grotty a bad back can be and they are no fun at all. Glad you were able to do some bits and bobs though. Hope your feeling better soon.

  6. Oh, poor you. When I was little and people used to say they had a bad back I really couldn't understand what they were going on about - such is the joy of youth. Now, as a 40 something grown up I appreciate fully what those adults meant so many years ago - a bad back is nasty. Make sure you milk it for all its worth and hope you get better soon.

  9. Oh gosh that sounds absolutely awful, your back, the worst pain, so debilitating isn't it. Your duck description is perfectly descriptive! I really, really hope you're better soon. Love Vanessa xxx

  10. Oh dear - hope you don't suffer for too much longer!

  11. What is it with New Year's and backs?! (All that lugging Christmas shopping around has something to do with it I think). Mine went a couple of years ago, not pleaseant at all so I really sympathise.

    Sounds like you're doing completely the right thing though, plenty of telly and crochet are just the ticket let me tell you (apart from I can't crochet but you know what I mean!)

    Hope everything clicks back into place soon, take it VERY easy and rest.
    Lots of love

  12. Ouch - what you need is a visit to my physio. Trust me those good looks of his are enough to cure :)

  20. yowser, that sounds pants! as a fellow back hurty sufferer i can thoroughly recommend bowen technique if it doesn't clear up by itself... alternatively vodka helps too... happy new year petal x

  28. OO! Poor you, I know what that feel like. I must say your sketch book/note book looks very organised, much more so than mine ever could, I really should make more effort.
    Hope your feeling better soon.
    Managed to create a few mosaics although I did in BigHugeLabs, thank you very much for your help.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
