Now that was an experience! Firstly we had a good ole chat about why my back/neck/hips/shoulders, etc are so sore. Then we talked about how having me put down was NOT an option and how Chinese medicine can make a difference.
Then he stuck a whole load of needles in my head, neck, back and hands (yes, HANDS!! I wussed out of having the ones in my feet - eeuuww!) and cleared off for half an hour! So there I sat, like a ruddy hedgehog, on me tod, and started to nod off. Just as I was getting comfy, he came back and pulled them all out!!
Thought that was it, but then he started on some serious massage with what I thought was a roller thingy. Really painful. He said I'll look like I've been flogged by tonight! When he stopped, I asked to see what he'd used and couldn't believe it! A Chinese SOUP LADLE!! I've got a whole set of them to go with my little Chinese soup bowls!
So I've been stabbed and beaten up with a soup ladle and charged a lot of money for the privilege! AND I'm going back for more on Saturday!! I KNOW!!
But it feels much easier. And it's cheaper than the morphine/methacarbamol/diclofenac, etc, in the end.
So there you are - all you lovely folks with aches and pains really need is a tub of Tiger Balm and a soup ladle.... have you sorted in no time! Hugs xxxxd

I have to pass these onto to 5 blogging buddies, too (we'll come back to that later, honest!). And finally, I need to say a great big thank you to my good friend, Barbara. She also gave me the Marie Antoinette award. She's had a shocking few months and it's so good to have her back in blogland in one piece. Hugs to you, Hunnybunny xxxx
So that's my grovelling... I'm sorry it's taken so long to get around to this. It doesn't help that the trapped nerve is still stuck where it shouldn't be (must be a bloke nerve - won't ask for directions LOL!) and the morphine is making me a bit left of centre...
Going to try for some crafting this weekend, so watch this space.... oh, and given that I'm rapidly approaching 15000 hits on this little ole blog, watch out for blog candy - COMING SOON!

Hope you all had a good festive celebration? We had a quiet one again. Don't do much now without Dad. But we make a bit of an effort for Lil G. We were hoping to go out for New Year's with her, but the weather was so bad we decided to stay home and watch the fireworks over at the pub.... but the weather was soooo bad they didn't have any! So we had a naughty midnight feast, turned all the lights off and watched the fireworks over the Thames on the telly!
Not much else to report, except for a trapped nerve which is really getting on my remaining nerve - drugged up on morphine most of the time, which is a hoot and much cheaper than Baileys LOL!
Will try to get some crafting done this weekend, if I'm lucky! Hugs xxxx
