'Lil Bookworm fairy'

Well what a pants few days I have had health wise. We had a fabulous day at Rhyl airshow, only for me to forget to take my pain meds before we went. So I was in agony by the time we got home. I kinda fell into bed & stayed there or on the sofa for the next two days. managed to get myself moving yesterday. But my damn back, I still can't stand up straight!

Anyhoos, I won't be doing that again lol
