The last few weeks have been very hectic and I hardly had any time to spend in my vegetable garden or go jogging. But I have lots of time this week, a good time to sort out the vegetable beds and get into the jogging habit again.
Unfortunately, I've also been having back problems the last few weeks which wouldn't disappear, so I decided to go to the doctor to have it checked out and to make sure I'm not doing anything wrong.
He told me in no uncertain terms:
- take anti inflammatory tablets (ok, no probs)
- rest (hmm)
- no jogging (gutted, but had a strange feeling he might say that, as I had to abandon my last attempt)
- no working in the garden (What, No!!!!)
All my good intentions for this week gone. If I had rested my back for two weeks, maybe laying on the beach with a book (his words) the pain would most likely have gone already. But a) I can't afford a beach holiday, and b) even if I did, I couldn't lay there for all that time, that just isn't me.
So, that's my week ruined, although he did allow me ONE HOUR'S work in the garden - as long as I behaved and didn't bend down stupidly.
Me behave? Oh well, if I must ......
