Thank you all so much for all the supportive comments yesterday, after my nasty experience in the freezer shop. That altercation upset me quite a lot, it preyed on my mind later on and during the night. The woman was just so unhelpful, so rude about me, loudly, to another customer, and didn't even seem bothered about the fact that some of our shopping fell on the floor, as a result of her ridiculous piling up of it all in a very small space. As a result, I didn't sleep at all well last night as I felt rattled - the heavy rain didn't help, nor did Betty jumping off my bed and making gagging sounds either. I thought she was going to be sick - fortunately, she wasn't. Perhaps she'd swallowed a fly! She soon settled down again though, which is more than can be said for me.
I'm going to have an easy day at home today, sorting out all my clothes.....some to be bagged up for the charity shop, and summer clothes to be put into a lidded plastic box to go under the bed. I will try and persuade husband to do the same. I'd like to do some more rows on my caravan blanket too, but have an aching shoulder this morning so that might not happen. My hip is really painful too, one of those days where I can't sit or stand comfortably.
On the subject of which....there's a therapist who lives and practises (practices?) in the next village to us, she advertises a lot on our local social media pages and has a lot of glowing reviews. She does something called Bowen therapy, which I gather is some sort of muscle massage, for all sorts of aches and pains. It's apparently very gentle, rather than the chiropractic I've had before which was quite brutal. She offers a free 15 minute taster session, so I've enquired about that - what have I got to lose? Her full hour sessions cost £40 and she reckons people generally see good results after just 2 or 3 sessions - so if she's right, that'll be money well spent. Have any of you heard of (or had) Bowen therapy?
