So yesterday as I was folding some washing I started to feel a sharp and then lingering pain across my upper back and neck - after an urgent trip to the physio it turns out that the discs between my vertebrae in my middle back have started to come apart - the result of hunching over my sewing machine, cutting on the floor as I don't have room for a cutting table in my apartment, and eating on the coffee table because I use the dining room table as my work space. Just not looking after myself really. The physio explained it was similar to if you get a cut on your knuckle and keep bending your finger, the cut won't heal and will just get bigger.
Thankfully it is quite early and with pilates and exercises and not doing stupid things like cutting on the floor I should be ok, but I have pretty much had to stay upright yesterday and today and have been in a huge amount of pain which sucks. And I was mid way through my big de-clutter in preparation for the New Year. So now my house is in disarray and I just have to sit here amongst the mess and stay still! At least I can do a bit of computer work, but I am really really really bad at relaxing!
Anyway, Nick and I are going to have a quiet NYE here at home with some champagne and party food and maybe some singstar, not sure what I will be able to do with this back in the state it is, but I am determined to have fun anyway!
Thank you again to everyone who has visited and commented over the past year, it means so much know that I am not talking to myself here haha!
