Please note that I always leave a message on your STS/SP if you visit me, but if you use DISQUS or a similar third party I will not be able to leave a comment on your page. I don't allow any company access to my social media accounts and I certainly don't allow them to edit and take over my accounts the way DISQUS does. So if you use DISQUS, I can't leave comments on your page so I can't really follow you back, sorry! And sometimes, I have problems leaving messages on blogs hosted by Wordpress-they try to block me so there might not be a message from me some weeks or you might get a double message sometimes! Blame them, not me!
It hasn't been the best of weeks at Chez Chuckles! Those who viewed my gardening post on Tuesday would know that me, my dad and our neighbour got the slabs for a new path in the front garden put into place and were going to secure them into position with sand the next day. Weather wise, Wednesday was beautiful so we set about the task. It was a day of hell-we had to start getting sand under the stones to secure them in place to stop them wobbling when you walk on them but the damn things were so heavy they had to be levered up with garden tools. We'd sit it back in position and then lift it again to make adjustments, crawling about the concrete for nearly four hours to get nine stones in place. We were both knackered. Next morning I woke up and realised I'd done my back in. Great. The pains in my lower back, hips and legs have made it so uncomfortable to sit in my computer chair for more than ten minutes at a time that blogging was cancelled this week. I'm still suffering it but I need to get my Saturday post done so I can go and have a rest! Still, the slabs look good and are secure and it will have been worth it when the pain goes! Thankfully my dad didn't have any more problems with his back!
Trying to find a comfy position to lie in and get my concentration sorted hasn't been easy so I haven't got much reading done, which is annoying! I've mostly been leafing through those women's weekly magazines with true life stories. That always reminds me that many other people in the UK have worse problems than a temporary sore back! Anyway, a few reads was better than nothing and I did have some new Amazon purchased paperbacks arriving to make things better! I do like a bit of retail therapy from the comfort of home! This week the downloads are mostly from a couple of weeks back but a few are new grabs this week. Exciting!
