Ugh !

I’ve given in!
Bending slightly incautiously last night meant that I could feel my back crunch. Compounded by overnight thunderstorms and a showery day today (which also play hob with my back) has meant it’s a horrid day of being largely unable to walk, and doing stairs on my hands and knees. I’ve now cracked, and tuned on the central heating … the balance between penury and pain has shifted in favour of the former!
