Thank you for all the comments, I know I don't answer them all individually, but I do read and appreciate every single one. I have a great bunch of readers (beats me why you stay! 😂), you're all lovely, thank you.
This morning, for the first time in several days, I woke up in a bit of pain with the sciatica down the back of my left leg and twinges in my lower back - probably because I was on my feet in the kitchen for a couple of hours yesterday, then sitting in my craft room....the chair is only a spare dining chair with a cushion to support my back, so it's not really comfortable for long periods. Thankfully, the pain didn't last too long and I've been a bit more careful and 'aware' of my back today.
I've not done too much today, just a bit of kitchen stuff, googling for some information, little bit of shopping for fresh veg, collected our prescriptions. Oh, and we went to have a look at and test drive a new car....well, new to us. Our little Fiat MPV, which we've had for less than a year, is a nice enough car, it's comfortable, cheap to run and looks good. But it's gutless, really struggles going up hills - there's a long, not particularly steep, hill on the way to the caravan and the car struggles so much going up there that I often feel like I need to get out and push. And the boot is quite small - Betty's travel cage doesn't fit in it which I'm not very happy about, and even with the back seats down we can't get a lot of stuff in the back - even less with Betty in the car.
This car we looked at is still a Fiat but quite a bit bigger - bigger engine, much bigger boot, it will easily fit Betty's cage in. And with the back seats folded there's tons of room, which will come in very handy with a couple of projects we've got in mind for next year. It's also quite high up, unlike a normal saloon car, so is easy to get in and out of. It drives like a dream - well, husband drove it and liked it, and it seemed a very comfortable and easy ride to me, it certainly has a lot more 'oomph' to it. It's got very strong roof bars fitted, which will also be useful.....husband will need to stand on a stool to put anything on the roof though! So we've bought it, the garage is taking our present car in part exchange. The new one is having a service and new MOT and they're delivering it to us next week.
I've got my covid booster jab this week, Friday, I'm glad about that. I didn't really have any problems with the first two....I think I felt a bit under the weather for a day or 2 after the first, but had no reaction whatsoever to the 2nd, not even a sore arm. Hopefully, the booster won't give me any problems either. Husband had his a couple of weeks ago and just felt a bit more tired than usual for the first day or so.
