After five minutes of attempting to do some housework my back said,
or it would have if backs could speak!
On Saturday a disc in my back slipped  (a not unusual occurrence) and I have been in agony since.

If Pollyanna were here she would say something along the lines of,
'Be grateful that you have had at least three months without a slipped disc ' ,
 which is true but sadly I am not grateful and it does not ease the pain.

And if Cardiff Council's social services hatchet men were here they would say,
'Just be grateful that your daughter is in school , remembering that we consider school time as RESPITE time, and you have plenty of FREE time with nothing to do but   relax during RESPITE/SCHOOL time so don't expect any sympathy from us even  though we promised  extra help three months ago and never followed through on our promises ..........!

On a brighter note, the Easter holidays are over today and Missy was thrilled to be going back to school, it is always really nice when Missy is so very  FLAPPY HAPPY  she cannot keep still :)

Hi from an old blogger friend from years ago. Glad to know everyone is doing well. Your little one is so beautiful! Growing fast.

My aspie son is 16 and will be in American high school for 2 more years before heading out to college. Another post for another day. Just wanted to say hi and hope you are doing well.

Sorry to hear about your back.




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
