I spent much of last night awake with the pain from my sciatica and the associated worry - I suffer from health anxiety and as such think that every ailment I have will be the death of me!! That in itself is exhausting but my back/hip/leg has been so painful - I will confess here that I think I have a pretty low pain threshold - also known as Being A Bit Of A Wuss.
The pain settled mostly in my calf accompanied by flutterings, twitching and numb toes and I just couldn't get comfortable despite a horse shaped hot water bottle and an assortment of strong painkillers. So I hardly slept.
The result of the pain, lack of sleep and painkillers meant I have been shattered all day so have spent it in my Cath Kidston rose covered bed, sleeping and this afternoon watching "The Ten Commandments" with Charlton Heston.
I do love an old movie - unfortunately, I fell asleep just as Moses was persuading the pharaoh to release his people and awoke for the end credits!!
So because of all this I haven't spent any time today in one of my favourite places, the conservatory sofa (well, I can't leave you without a photo of some sort!!):
