In the meantime, between Olympic stuff, I carried on with my pansy. It is slowly coming to life. I'm starting to add the darker shade of purple to achieve some depth. I'll keep at it. I saw a lovely photo of a badger which I must draw.
I didn't feel guilty about being indoors, the weather today has been terrible. So windy, and also raining, Harvey is unamused.
It's been a busy week, sadly some of the time was taken up with a bit of a crisis, not of my doing, and which was finally sorted out by a lovely lady who knew what she was doing. So I spent the first half of the week totally stressed and very, very anxious. Then on Thursday it was off to yet another hospital for an assessment on my dodgy back. The verdict wasn't good, in fact I was a bit surprised when I was told that I had damage to more than one disc. I now need to have an MRI, that will show how bad things are, not sure I want to know. But my back really is bad, on Monday I just turned and suddenly my back went into spasm, I was in agony for the next two days until the spasm eased. And today I've had a horrible dull ache in my lower back, with some pins and needles, plus a loss of power, that is the only way I can describe it.
Only one more day of the Olympics to do, can Mo Farah get his second gold, I hope so, and I loved the hockey last night, what a match. I hated hockey at school, I never fancied getting hit by that very hard ball! I preferred netball, or volleyball, and I wasn't bad at athletics, fairly good at long jump, but I was a water baby, swam for the school team! And I wasn't bad at tennis. Think I've just realised why I have so many aches and pains, all those sports.
Almost time for a well earned cuppa, then I need to get Harvey to come in. It would be good if it started raining now, that would bring him running home. Will be back soon with an update on Snowdrop cottage, and the pansy.
