Tom: Hi everyone. Well, it's not only still grey and rainy but the countryside has been covered in fog! The Christmas tree is still up!
Now, do you check your comment spam folder regularly? We do since we realised that, for some odious reason, our friend Bert's comments were all ending up there. Today's crop heavily featured cheap Louboutin shoes, which #1 considers an abomination (you must realise that her foot attire of greatest choice at the moment is Neoprene lined wellies). Interestingly enough, the other category that is heavily featured is prescription drugs, with Tramadol being the flavour du jour. Why interesting? Because it is also the standard recommended treatment for sciatica! But fear not, #1 has not succumbed to spam crap as she is well-stocked in proper pharmaceuticals, and she finally decided to start taking some yesterday. So, maybe we are a little Thankful at the diminished pain? Yes, we are. By the way, we just read on Wikipedia that the particular NSAID she is taking is standard use in horses. Are you surprised?
You can imagine that my fun runs in the fields have been rather curtailed between the cold/cough and sciatica, but she does manage to struggle out in the mornings when the pain is most under control and gives me a good Chuck-it session. I'll take what I can get!
By the way, there is talk of snow next week!
