Greetings dear readers
My back is out. I don't know why backs are out instead of 'acting up' whatever that might mean. My back has gone shopping in New York and has no plans to be back at being a back until certain conditions are met.
A message from my back:
I will come back and behave if the following conditions are met:
1. No shovelling. Don't even think about it. You have a man and a son-like creature. You can make hot chocolate and move the car so they can get underneath it. That's it.
2. No going in a car either as the driver (very bad) or even as a passenger if it is really slippery out there because you keep clenching your muscles and it hurts me.
3. Express your anger freely on the spot - not your agression but your anger. As in "I'm angry with you, Air Canada, for causing me to sit on uncomfortable chairs for hours instead of just letting ALL of us know you had no intention of flying to X on this date.
4. More hot baths with lots of epsom salts and a glass of wine wouldn't hurt either.
That's it. The trouble is that it takes my back ages to get the telegram in which I agree to these terms. Ages.
Other news: tomorrow my drabble is up at the Burrow blog so head over there and check out the Valentine blog page to find it. And I think ...no I know ...that I also have the Burrow for Topical Tuesday tomorrow so you can read me twice!
In the real world, I plan on finishing my synopsis and the fix-up of my first 3 thousand words of The Rock Walker and getting it out to the Debut Dagger Contest. Cross your fingers for me unless you have your own book looking for the prize - I'd be ecstatic to be a finalist so even if you do - you could hope that for me.
Also - dear readers - you could go over and see all the pictures I loaded onto my Living the Complicated Simple Life blog yesterday. We had a nice walk around High Head and I took some pics. While you're there check out the posting one ahead of yesterdays on Lewis Carrol's birthday. It is weird but fun, I think. Or you could go to Dreaming With Rumi and see what I've been up to there. Oh and leave me a comment or so....
That's it! Tomorrow is writing with Gwen and then lying on the couch praying my back comes back from its extensive vacation.
