Yes that's me , I'm afraid

Pretty photo to make my grumbly post more palatable!

You see I have hurt my back
a flare up of a previous injury
I have been laid up for over a week now
I can't sit for more than a minute or two
my patience and positivity are waning

On the plus side I have freed up about 80% on the sky+ box
I have enjoyed the Gilmore girls...they have kept me sane 
thank goodness for sweet family, lovely friends and blog land
I have also learnt the tricky art of laying down crochet

So much for focusing on my shop this week!

So if I am absent for a while please don't worry
I am still here
...grumbling away!

Please enjoy your weekend and hop, skip, jump and sit on mybehalf

more soon

  1. Poor you! Hope you are feeling better soon and able to sit up and crochet. I get the feeling I am going to be aching tomorrow as I am painting kitchen cupboards - what's the betting I get a crick in my neck as a result?! Take care and try to enjoy the weekend from a funny angle!! xx

  2. Arrw no! :( I hope you feel better soon! I've heard that lots of tea and lots of cake works a treat :)
    Lying down crochet sounds very tricky! I hope you're able to sit up again soon. I'll do some skipping for you on the way home today :) x

  3. Oh Jooles- how frustrating (and painful)! Maybe time to watch all those movies that there isnt usually time to see.I also prescribe margaritas drunk thro a straw- at least then you are already lying down, so it wont matter if you get a bit squiffy!

  4. Oh no!! Hope you make a speedy recovery, must be so frustrating not to mention painful :( hope you will be up and about again soon and able to pick up the crochet - really feel for you! x

  5. Poor you - a bad back is such a debilitating thing to be living with no wonder you feel grumpy - it's allowed! I hope it gets better very soon, and in the meantime enjoy the change of routine and the lying down crochet!!

  6. Poor you! I hope you are being well looked after and that you make a speedy recovery. My husband is just recovering from spinal surgery, so I have a vague idea how horrible and frustrating it can be to be laid up with back pain. Take care!

  7. Aww poor you! Hope you feel better really soon.

  12. Oh, poor you! I hope you feel a bit better soon - meanwhile try and enjoy the enforced bed-rest, sounds like the perfect excuse to spend all day crocheting, to me!
