It’s been a good day, though my blog has taken a hit and I have several posts lined up as WIP.
I’ve made my cards, done a few challenges, walked the dog a couple of times, and had another thrashing at darts.
Hubby has been playing brilliantly, but once again my finishing double is eluding me.
I was a bit stiff after my card making session so was glad of a walk before supper or late tea depending on which side of 5pm it is.
We played darts when we came back, and something ‘went’ in my back. It’s been playing me up since I overstretched to reach the new bolt on the gate, but now it’s calling ‘foul’ so I’m going to have to be careful.
For anyone who plays, have you ever thought about the way you stand at the oche?
Are you sideways on or full frontal sotospeak?I tend to stand face on, but when I threw my darts tonight, they went sideways and not even close to anywhere I was aiming at. On close inspection, I’ve split a stem so will have to replace it, which isn’t a problem, but what was affecting my play was my back which twinged every time I let go of my arrow.
We played six games, and I lost 4 to 2. Yesterday I got hammered 5 nil.
I’ve taken some pain killers, but they haven’t done anything and I can’t take any more for a couple of hours. Hopefully I can catch up with my posts until then.
The last time I had serious problems with my back was when I was first married and ‘put it out’ by leaning over the chair to turn the stereo off. Of course nobody believed me as I’d only been married a few months, but I was off work for a fortnight and had to lie flat for half of it. I had a notice on the door telling whoever was calling to wait as it took me five minutes to get out of bed and downstairs.
