If I Was A Horse....!!!

If I was a horse running in a race today they would shoot me before I got to the starting line. I don't know what I have done at myself but when I got out of bed this morning something went with a crack in my hip and a bolt of pain shot down my leg. Now my right hip and up into my back is killing me and it hurts to walk. Everything I had planned for the weekend has gone by the board. No visit to the quilt show but I am not too worried about that as I have enough fabric to last me for projects for a good while after my stash buying trip last week. No visit to the makers market and I really wanted to take a photo of the flower stall and certainly no lugging the hoover up two flights of stairs for the deep clean I was going to start.
If I can stand long enough to do it I will cut the backing and wadding for one of the quilts I need to finish and then sit and do the hand tying getting up every half hour to have a hobble round to stop myself from seizing up altogether and hope it doesn't turn into a long bout of sciatica. I could swear I really could.

DD has gone to do a small top up shop for me this morning as we have decided on a simple tea today after going out for a meal yesterday. We are having BLT's (bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches on granary bread) one of my favourites.

There are some dark clouds starting to gather. I don't know if they hold any of the snow we have been told is due this weekend but it's flippin' cold enough to. As much as I love snow it's not quite the same when we are nearly in May is it?

Have a fab weekend y'all.


  1. We have had rain showers on and off all morning, but it really is cold enough to snow.

  2. Hope your painful bit mends soon so you don't have to miss too many other things. Freezing here in Suffolk too

  3. I hope you're on the mend very soon. Don't worry about the cleaning. It always waits for us. X

  4. I am so very sorry this has happened to you. It really does sound painful. If not better as weekend goes on please go see your doctor. I suffered with a painful knee for almost 3 weeks before I gave in and took myself off to the doctor. X-rays indicated nothing out of place but lots of arthritis. So now am taking tablets to manage the pain and inflammation. I am still walking very slowly and staying away from steps as much as possible.

    Hugs to you.

  5. Ouch...that sounds painful. Take it easy. x

  6. Oh no Sheila X there must be something in the air as my stupid knee is now playing up too ffs


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
