We were having a laugh about Julia’s bad back and the “in sickness and in health” part of the wedding vows a couple of days ago (bearing in mind that she spent six months running round after me last year).
You should never tempt fate.
On Thursday, after overdoing things in the garden she went to her second job in the Leisure Centre, but had to ring for a lift home as she was unable to sit at her desk due to the back pain.
We spent the evening applying hot water bottles and anti-inflammatories, but it was just as bad this morning.
The doctor fitted her in this morning and I took time off from the new job to take her down and bring her back (I am not a model employee). She is currently furnished with painkillers and muscle relaxants, and I am in charge of providing a constant supply of hot water bottles.
I’m back from work now and she is catching up on her sleep.
I’ll be back later, but for now I’m off to boil a kettle…
