The Month That Went...

OK, it looks like it's been a month since I came here and wrote about all the exciting stuff happening here in Barb's Backyard...I wonder why that is?  It's not because I have been too busy doing exciting stuff that's for sure.  Though there have been a few places that I have been and one of them was pretty darn cool.  Thanks T! 

So what has been happening?  Hmmm, need to think now...and this is why I started to blog in the first place, so that I would have a way of remembering what I did and where I went...

I went out to lunch with a sister and my mother.  I always look forward to that.  We decided that we would *do lunch* every month and though we haven't made it every month since we started there have been a few.  At the last one we were trying to remember where we had been but none of us could remember them all.  I was going to come home and ask the husband as if I had mentioned it to him he would have remembered...but I forgot!   One day I will make a list...

I have a sore back and it is a bleedin' pain.  It's stopping me from doing all that stuff that I wouldn't want to do if I could.   I have just come in from trying to hang up some washing...not good, I felt it *rip* as  I flung a pair of trousers over the line.  Husband will have to finish hanging it for me.   The doctor says it could take another month to heal  and just gave me a script for a stronger anti inflammatory.   It is a different pain to my usual lower back pain and restricts more movement.  I can't raise my arms or lift anything heavy or lean on anything...Darn nuisance anyway.  I have the markets on Sunday and hoping that I will manage getting there and setting up OK...Daughter will be there to do most of it so should be OK.

This daughter took me on an adventure last week as a late Mothers Day gift.  Her family and husband and I all went on a dolphin cruise in Mandurah with a fish and chip lunch on board.  We saw dolphins and cruised the canals looking at all the flash houses, heaps of birds...I loved it.

I haven't planted anything, picking enough to eat with extra to rot in the fridge...that's not good.

Still doing Vinnies and in saying that....I am there this morning so better get a move on.


  1. So, this record of what happened and when is exactly why you should post several times each week, at least. Even a few lines counts as blogging. Plus, you can have a record. I do hope your back gets better. "Ripping" is never a good feeling/sound in my body. Get better.

    That was a nice Mother's Day adventure for you all. I need to borrow a daughter.

  2. Hi Barb, hope you are recovering you poor love...pain is awful <3 <3 <3

  3. I know how horrible and debilitating a bad back is! Hope you get better soon.

  4. Thanks for the well wishes everyone, I appreciate it.
