Are you humming the song now?
I’m still waiting for my back to become less painful. Last night we went out for a meal with my father, his partner, my sister and her husband and by the end of the meal I had trouble standing again. I feel about a hundred and fifty. My sister suggested perhaps I should find some form of exercise to ease it – well, I think I found that this morning with the milking. It hurt like mad when I started but after reaching under cows for an hour I was starting to limber up. Once I stopped it stiffened again so unless I make milking a full-time occupation I think I’ll just have to carry on waiting for it to improve on it’s own. A visit to the doctors has been suggested, but they’ll probably just tell me it’s muscular and to take ibuprofen combined with painkillers so there’s not much point as that’s what I’m doing already.
