Thank you all for the kind comments about my shoulder. Yes, I am one of those men who only goes to doctors and hospital as a last resort (yes I know, I'm preached about it from all sides) anyway it has improved somewhat throughout the day and ibruprofen and paracetamol is good. I've bought a pack of syndol which is a painkiller with a muscle relaxant and something I find brilliant with these sorts of things and will take that tonight with the hope that I will wake up bright and new tomorrow.
I have bought a dining table! I went to the wonderful Bygone Times in Chorley which I love mooching about at the best of times and in there is a brilliant carpenter called Pete who does great work and is very good value. He is building me a solid wood table to my measurements and my own choice for £175 and his work is beautiful, plus I get the satisfaction of supporting a local craftsmen rather than giving my money to a huge corporation. Money well spent for what I want, especially as the table is a gift in the first place. He is building it this week and says it should be ready at the end of next week. Can't wait to be able to sit properly at last and finish off my kitchen - finally will get some pictures up then. My friend came with me and bought a dvd boxset of The Walking Dead, season 1 for £3, which, as John will know, is a real favourite of mine, So we spent the afternoon revisiting zombie filled America!
It's raining again, but I am living on the hope that this weather is going to begin to improve, if what my mum says is correct. Let us hope. I am staying with some friends on Sunday, over in Ely, in Cambridgshire as I have a day off, and it will be really wonderful to see them. Then a quick trip over to France at the beginning of next week and finally home for 10 whole days! There are times when being self employed has its benefits - not many, but some. Pray for good weather.
Now let's hope that no zombies come out of the woods and get me in the middle of the night, more likely to be sheep and badgers.
Love to all and bye for now.
