Twinge ain’t what they used to be……………

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.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Sounds like you may need a trip to the chiropractor…well wishes your way

  2. I was always face on. Looked a bit odd but it worked. Think it was better for my balance. You take care.

    Aww, so sorry. Hope that you get better soon. A rest is the thing to do.

  7. I believe the current thinking on pulled muscles etc is to try to keep moving rather than to do nothing gentle movement is better. My wife has a beauty clinic and one of her specialisations is sports massage which she is exceptionally good at, so just checked with her to confirm, keep moving gently if you can.
