Mum down..code red mum down..

Hello all, how are you all?
Like my title says Code Red Mum Down..my flipping back has gone again..it did this a few years back and i ended up at the doctors. I had some painkillers that slowed time down whilst i was sat dribbling in the corner..i don't want that again so this time i am trying to keep mobile.Walking is the easy part of it painful but easy..its the sitting down and getting up that does me in. Can't get comfy and not sleeping too good either..if its no better by Monday then i may have to go to the doctors.
My lovely husband and girls are being very helpful and doing lots of little things that i can't and just to add to this my husband pulled muscles in his neck in the week and can't turn his head..what a pair we make at the minute.

Anyway back to what we have been doing apart from celebrating all the events this week.
 I found via Pinterest these cut outs for the Human Body..there are lots more so we will eventually have them all..we drew around Iris who is a fidget so thats why its a bit misshapen in places
 Labels for the bones of the body
 2 spiral cut outs just for fun
 A little concertina man with all the internal and external points for us to investigate
 My experiment to show how Lungs work..i used a balloon to demonstrate inhale and exhale..

 Our spiral cut outs hanging up
 Fern and her buddy..this pictured caused me a lot of pain to do..i got down on my knees to take it and then couldn't get back up again..

 Whilst i was down there i took a picture of our Water Lilly flowering for the first time this year
 The Cucumbers are going to be huge this year i hope..
 2 of the plants are meeting in the middle already..
 The girls and hubby went up to the allotment this morning..they brought back a lettuce
 2 Courgettes
 Spring onions
 New Potatoes for tomorrow lunch..
I am not baking today..i can't stand up for too long..my hubby is going to make the pancakes for the week..i will mix it and he will make them.
I have some cakes in the freezer for this kind of situation.
Hopefully next week i will be fine and back to normal but for now its slow and steady for me.
take care all

  1. Utmost sympathy on your backpain. Me too! I have tried alternating a hot water bottle with an ice pack. It's really helping calm the iflammation down. I've never tried it before although the physio recommended it. Hope it makes a difference for you too.

  5. I too suffer from a lower back that throws itself out about every two years. I used to hobble to the doctors for a script but a chemist told me that I can purchase naproxen tablets (which are marketed for period pain I have no idea why) and that you don't need a script. It is an anti inflammatory, these taken with paracetamol fixes it straight up and no trip to the doctor. I always keep some in my medicine chest now.

  6. Ouch, I hurt my back for the first time last year so have the utmost sympathy. I was just thinking how much I would love to have had someone like you teach my kids. They would have loved going to school.

  7. Ouch!! I do hope you are slowly improving. You are doing just the right thing in trying to keep gently mobile.

    Love the school work the girls are doing at the moment, it must be interesting for you too, the research and finding the next lesson plans for them.

    Take care xx
