I have officially given up on 2010. After yesterday’s shenanigans my plans to downhill ski, try a little cross-country skiing and generally be a happy outdoorsy person over the next few days have gone out of the window. Instead I’ve turned into a hobbling around old lady with a very sore lower back who can’t pick anything up and can’t even sit down for very long.
And it stinks!
I didn’t go to the doctor in the end – mainly because it would have been such a pain to get there. Maybe I should have, but I guess I’ll see one way or another in a day or two. Whatever, I have well and truly bashed my bottom – and my home diagnosis is a battered coccyx – which seems in any case to be a wait till it gets better type of injury.
So I’m staying home and not doing a whole lot. The next few days will include a little lying-down reading and watching movies and maybe a little light hand-quilting and if I feel really rash, maybe even a new (very small) knitting project, even though I know I shouldn’t.
Actually, when I put it like that, apart from the pain, it actually sounds quite nice. What is also nice is that mummy’s little and not-so-little helpers will have to get stuck in and take care of pretty much everything. I don’t think they are particularly thrilled, but there really isn’t an alternative.
I’m really not good at all at not being active, but I guess I need to learn…
Wish me luck at being lazy and pass me the chocolates…..
