Word of the day: Pain

Ended the week in a world of pain.  Pain in my chest woke me up around 2am yesterday.  I managed with it until 7ish but by then I had to go and get it checked out.  Yeah, I probably should have gone sooner.  Turns out I have a small crack on a rib and inflammation of the junctions where the upper ribs join with the cartilage.   I have a vague idea how I did it but it was weeks ago.  I fell and bumped my chest but the pain went away.  Perhaps something recently flared it up?  Who knows?  Perhaps I am just getting old before my time. I’m still in pain today.  I think I am OK then I stretch for something and my body reminds me I’m not.  Surely I am due a break soon!  I won’t be attempting anything strenuous this weekend.  So gaming and chilling is …

Reflection and weekend plans

It’s Friday evening and I’ve made it through another week.  I’m looking forward to unwinding over the weekend and starting fresh.  I have the sense that I am slowly starting to win the morning blues battle. Losing more than I am winning but at least there are some wins appearing. Andrew and I are meant to go stargazing this weekend but at the moment the weather is not looking promising.  We have a “go bag” ready though so we can leave at a few moments notice! Sounds fairly drastic when I write that down but it looks like we may only get a window of a couple of hours this weekend at most.  If it doesn’t work out this weekend we will probably look to go further afield. Tyrion will be going out for his first walk tomorrow. Vick will probably say it is not a moment too soon! He …
