I’m Not Backing Down !

Three weeks ago, the day after my last post was published I was knocked flat by the flu virus.  Living alone, home chores still had to be done even though all I wanted to do was to stay in bed or lay on the sofa and sleep. 

One such job was to change the bag in the bin under the sink in the kitchen.  I bent down to pull the bin out of the cupboard and my lower back snapped.  I was in agony !

This is how my cats saw it !


















Oh boy !  Everything about the cats is on the floor.  Their baskets, litter tray, the constant mess they make.  I moved their food and drink on top of a kitchen work surface ….



….. which helped my back a bit, but everything else is almost impossible for me to do.


No.  You are okay Sonic.  Just wait until I get better !


Has a kitchen appliance ever zapped you ?

I am feeling much better, not quite 100% human.  98% prince, 2% frog (or is it the other way round ?)

Thank you to my blogging friend from the USA who sent me the package which is on its way back to her.  It may not be delivered to her home in America and may be sent back to me in Spain.  What fun !

It may take me a while to answer all your comments as sitting at my laptop is still quite painful.

Happy Easter ! xox

  1. Cats really do make a mess. When think I’m joking when I say Shekinah is the one who makes me clean all day 🙂 I should show them your post. I’m happy you are feeling better Ralph! X

    • Yes, it is amazing how much mess cats can do even though they sleep all day.
      Thank you Chantal. I soon recovered and am on top of the world, well almost, Spain 😉
