Backache

I have backache, and when I have backache I get really depressed - way out of proportion to the pain or inconvenience.

I wish I was a stoic.

Last time I said to my daughter-in-law that I wished I was a stoic (like Dave) she said "If you were a stoic, you wouldn't be Sue," which I thought was a very sweet and wise way to look at it.

Here is a much better photo of the stairs at the Midland Hotel than the one I posted yesterday. Jen (one of my clever sisters) took it.

Maybe you could get Dave to rub some of his 15 kg weekly yoghurt allowance in your back! Does that not do terrible things to his digestion?

No, it doesn't harm him, surprisingly. He says that this is what keeps him healthy and bouncing.

Further comment from Dave - "It would do terrible things to my digestion to have to rub it on your back. What a waste!"

Hi Sue, it's the first time I've read your blog - shame on me! I don't want to be one of those anonymous lurkers so I'll come up front and say I love your blog, almost as much as I love the blog called 'what do you do'.

P.S. I pressed the wrong button because I also wanted to say that I think you look very much like Meryl Streep, and I love the photos on your blog, they really made me feel brighter. One day I may even get my own blog... and my fave film of all time is Wonderful Life! the end. for now.

Thanks for not being a silent lurker, Maz! And thanks for your encouraging comments about my blog. It's so heartening to get feedback from readers.
