For those of you who don't live in Britain it is a fantastic pain killer that I swear by. We cannot get it in Canada as it contains a banned substance called paracetamol. No idea why it is banned in Canada, but it is.
On Wednesday night when I went to bed, I started to get muscle spasms in my leg and could feel the bottom of my back throbbing. Luckily when my brother came over he brought a couple of boxes of Solpadeine with him, so I popped a couple of those to help me sleep. When I woke up on Thursday morning, the spasms were still there, so took some more.
What is neat about Solpadeine is that you dissolve it in water and so it gets into your system faster. For the British people reading this, don't panic I won't get addicted to them, as they do have an addictive quality about them. I only take them when my back is bad or when I have one of my nasty headaches; and as I only have 64 pills in total I use them sparingly. It gives me a break from using liquid Advil. I can't take Tylenol as it doesn't do squat for me and Tylenol 2 or 3 kills my stomach for some reason?
No idea what I have done with my back this time; and it has been a while since it has given me problems. I had a herniated disc operated on 12 years ago, so my back is my weak point, especially my lower back where I had the operation. Every now and then though it flares up. Normally it repairs itself after a good nights sleep, but this time a good nights sleep didn't help?
I wrote the above first thing on Thursday morning. I decided to just get on with the day. Got the rest of the grass cut on Thursday. So that's it for at least a couple of days. I managed to weed one of the flower gardens, and pulled the weeds out of the footpath by the front deck. Pulled off a pile of leaves from the tomato plants, to encourage them to ripen!!
Got the linen closet shelves put up and filled it with things. Really pleased with it, it's exactly what I wanted.
I found the blue "storage" basket on clearance at Michael's the other week. It's perfect for there. I have yet to decorate the bathroom. I am going to wait until my brother leaves, and then paint it. It's going to be the colour of the closet walls.
The bedroom closet is also complete. I haven't taken a photo of it yet. There is still the odd job to do in the bedroom, but nothing too exciting. I will post photos tomorrow.
