A complete pain.
Over the past couple of months I have had a problem with my right shoulder. I think it is a combination of lifting coal, rubbing down and painting the boat. The muscle in my shoulder and upper arm, has been screaming at me everytime I use it. Despite taking pain killers, it has given me jip when I try to sleep. So yesterday, I bought some Musseltone Gel from my local chemist. It is suppose to repair the muscle and joint and should be rubbed in several times a day. On the first application I noticed a difference, with its cooling effect due to the mentol and by this morning, having used it a few times, my shoulder is already feeling much easier. I am continuing my pain killers as well and hope that my shoulder and arm will get better quickly. If this is not the case, I will have to give in and go and see the GP. I have been putting it off, because of looking after K. I cannot afford to be poorly in anyway at the moment.
Today has been an online day. With the weather closing in, it was a chance for me to do my Income Tax. So I posted my online Self-Assessment and it was accepted. Hooray that is done for another year. I then did a Tesco shop online, which will arrive next week. I really should go off-line now and get some real life jobs done. But it is raining and I really cannot be bothered. I still have some painting to do, but it cannot be done when it is raining. I also want to empty the engine room, so that I can paint the floor and possibly the ceiling if I have the time and weather on my side.
Ok I am going now, I have a Minced Beef Curry to make for dinner tonight and then I will decide what to do next. Have a lovely afternoon and evening.
