So, the beginning of this week was dreadful, migraines descended on Sunday - I woke up with one actually. By Tuesday I was in agony, outta my tree on painkillers and thoroughly sick of the whole thing. I was also suffering secondary pains in my shoulders, neck and back.
By teatime on Tuesday, I'd managed to get it under some degree of control -– it kinda felt like I'd stuck a cushion on top of it and then sat on it! After some argument with Mum, I decided I WAS going to the cinema with her, Matt & Kyle to see James Bond Quantum of Solace and promised that if it got bad, I would leave the theatre and go lie down in the car. But we also agreed that if all went well, we'd go to Tesco after and grab the weekly groceries!
I sat through the film with no problems, thoroughly enjoyed it and we decided we'd go and do the shopping.
We came home, unloaded and I went to park the car. I keep my car in a road opposite, we own a piece of land which acts like a driveway – it's just not attached to our house. We get to it via a footpath opposite my house which comes out directly opposite my car.
I was walking down the footpath back to the house with Mum and the boys, I'd linked arms with Matt – we were just passing a bollard in the middle of the path when my foot slid out from underneath me. I hadn't seen anything because the one and only lamp on that path was behind us at that point, but when we all moved we saw a HUGE pile of dog mess right between the hedge and bollard, so it was effectively in the middle of the right half of the path.
I ended up with dog crap all over my £150 New Rock boots, the return of my migraine and pulled muscles all down the right side of my body!
I bloody HATE people who don't clean up after their dogs – I have a back problem which causes me CONSTANT pain and yet I manage to pick up the mess that Isis makes and any mess that Kim makes if I'm out with whoever is walking him! So if I can do it, then why the hell can't everyone else!
