My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Thanks to everyone for their well wishes. The stomach bug/migraine-thing only lasted a couple of days and then I pulled my back. It's something I've done before many times and this time was a doozie!

I should add that I have seen oestopaths, chiropractors and physiotherapists over several years and I have been neglecting my exercises, so I've porbably only got myself to blame. Though I would like to know why it keeps happening.

I found it agony to lie down, sit, stand or walk and the accompanying muscle spasms sent the air blue with the choice expletives that issued from the depths of my agony.

With a cocktail of 4 different pain killers and anti-inflammatories I was prescribed managed to sleep. Zonked out would best describe it.

Apparently an X-ray would not determine what is  wrong but an MRI scan might, however, these are costly, the waiting lists long and I might not be considered eligible on the NHS...

As I lay resting I realised how much dusting needed to be done and how many movement cracks there were down the bedroom walls.

It took me a good 5 mins to get up from a lying position and one morning I awoke with my knees bent. Weird!
Hubby bought me some Therma pads, which feel lurvely

I really missed my blog.

I winced at the thought of not being able to read and comment on the latest fests and posts.

I missed not being able to join in the Haiku Wednesday.

I didn't achieve this week's Write1Sub1 target.
Though I did submit 2 things in week 1 so I guess that helps. 

I was delighted that my blogging friends left some lovely comments
and I even got some new followers while I was away, so Thank You.
