After a whole night of sleep deprivation on Friday night, I managed to get 8hrs on Saturday through to Sunday. What a difference it makes to wake up not feeling exhausted .

Last night I went to bed at 1am positive sure I would conk out to sleep.......then it started pains everywhere, resulting in me going into the spare room so I could sprawl out.

Today the sun was shining so I made the best of it by sitting on my garden swing, cat on my lap and a nice cup of tea. Bliss!

Oops! My Drs app. Was for 6.40pm and it was 6pm by the time I remembered. Started to get ready then BANG! My back gave way and I was frozen to the spot. I managed to phone my son who took me in his car.

I had to be practically carried into Drs ( how embarrassing) but do you know out of every bad experience comes something good. My lovely GP who didn't see the point in referring me to a rheumatologist has now relented and has put me on the waiting list.

Eureka ....hallelujah
