Now I'm Not One to Complain, But....



I awoke this morning, eventually, to a gray sky.  This is becoming a bit wearing now.  I also noted the bug lingered on, also wearing in every manner.  On top of this I decided to pull a muscle or strain some part of my calf on Saturday morning while crossing the road outside Tesco. (By 'calf' I mean 'calf' in my leg, not 'calf' in a field somewhere accompanying a cow!)  This means I now limp even slower than before, and as I took a perambulation around yesterday I toddled up a slight slope and made it worse!  So most of my time I sit here letting it 'rest.'   Bah!  How something so simple can ruin life.  If I were the complaining sort instead of the always cheerful type I may well get irked by this and form a protest movement.  However I will just grin and bear all my troubles with never a word of grumbling, as always.


During my few lucid moments today in between limping around attempting to find a cure for may ache, I researched (which means read a lot) the battles at Gaza in 1917.  This is because I require one short paragraph about some chaps who died there.  Since Saturday, in between pawing my aching leg and watching football I have been reading pages of this stuff.  How far have I got with the scrawl?  About one line......

I have to admit - the grey skies are making me a little sad now too! I'd love it if summer arrived. I hope you've made some progress on Gaza.

Just as well I never grumble either or else I would be nodding and sympathising with all of it except the aching leg (AT THE MOMENT, no point in being over confident, I am sure it is just a matter of time before I pull a muscle). I think that putting frozen peas on the ache is supposed to be good (in an unopened packet of course) I suppose you need to have 2 unopened packets so that when one lot defrosts you can put the others on. Seriously this is supposed to work on pulled muscles but it is even more boring and depressing when the weather is grey and cold too. I do hope you are better soon! and I hope we get some summery weather before it is winter again.

I am glad you have found something interesting to do though.

I am so pleased that you are a happy soul and not one of the grumbling kind. Never does a whinge fall from your lips! :)

Mandy, I think summer has arrived, that's the problem! After another two or three days of storms we will have a bit of sunlight. Either that or I will look at the pics on your blog!

Jenny, You see you are such an understanding woman! Others are somewhat cynical for some strange reason? The ice is a good idea, and an improvised plastic bag is ideal!

Lee, Hmmmm, do I detect a slight touch of cynicism here.....?

Mo, Surely it was not that bad....?

Surely the lads in those trenches could have used you as source of inspiration. I mean, come on, the way you endeavor to persevere without complaint each and every day is enough to bring a tear to many an eye!
