Bad back

For the last few weeks I have been struggling with my back. I have resorted to walking with two sticks. The pain  is barely contained by the CO-CODOMIL four times a day. Cooking is a chore and I’m totally fed up.

Have been to the docs and they seem to be singing from the same hymn sheet. Bursitis. I’m also having chiropractic treatment.

The last doctor I saw was a duty doctor. She said “what do you  want me to do”. I was a bit stunned. I think she saw an old lady who didn’t quite understand. I did however keep it together.

Yesterday was my daughter’s birthday. They visited The Shard for a drink I believe. The views look amazing from the very top.

We had to get the cat to the vet over the bank holiday. The cost was eye watering.  She was being sick everywhere, and as my back was not functioning very well I couldn’t leave it until my vet opened the next day. Injection, bloods taken and we returned home. Quite a mixture of cats and dogs. One family turned up with the dog’s bed and toys, plus one of those travelling water things. The man opened up the contraption, but quickly decided it wasn’t working. He unscrewed the bottle of water and just poured it into the container. So much for progress.

I don’t know what I would have done without my dog walker. She has picked me up plus dog and taken me to all of the appointments. I’m lucky to have someone  like that I know.

Just waiting for her to pick Trudy up and then out into the garden to pick up the poo. That’s a challenge as I have a large step down and then of course back into the flat. I’ve just ordered an outdoor step from Amazon that I hope should make things easier for me.

Wonderful weather.So much nicer than the very hot weather we’ve had but I know there are those of us who love the heat.

I’m sorry about the rambling but really needed to get it off my chest.
