Sleepless night. Severe back pain.
It's good to face challenges in the new year, but this one I would rather have avoided.
Made it back to our usual Far Place, though the journey was uncomfortable to say the least. The Missus emerged as the Star of the day, as is so often the case, getting me to the doctor's for some much-needed pain-killers and driving back from Melaka with aplomb. Fortunately there wasn't much of a New Year jam.
Though any experience of severe discomfort amounting to pain is to be avoided, this one has provided fuel for a resolution for the year ahead: When the bad times come, keep a sense of proportion, and remember all the good ones.
