Hi there! I hope you have been enjoying June at full speed. I’ve had to slow things down quite a bit lately since I injured my lower back while working. Actually I injured my back the first time earlier in the spring but it went away pretty quickly. Now a couple of weeks ago I was lifting heavy boxes while working and it snapped again. I’m up now and been able to do some tasks thank God! But I still have to be really careful what I do.
I’m not going to bore you with the back injury details too much. And looong story short we are sleeping in our guest room now and waiting our new mattress to arrive. Our current mattress has gone bad, I mean it’s sagging, too soft for the circumstances and because of all this it doesn’t give us any support anymore. We have noticed the problem before but we have been putting it off thinking that maybe it’s something else, doing our workouts wrong or whatever. Also the mattress was pretty new (only 4 years old!!!!) And now that I hurt my back really bad again I can’t get through the night sleeping on it.
Funny and luckily our guest bed has a “better” and more supportive mattress than our own. It’s not perfect but definitely better. And I hope and pray that I can sleep my nights in it till the end of this week. We have been sleeping in the guest room quite a while now 😀 It’s been actually very cosy and it almost feels like a little getaway treat at our own home… just across the hallway 😀
On another note are you sick of peonies yet? 😀 After Instagram and the social media peony explosion? I’m not! And probably never will be. It’s my favourite flower of all time! <3 I’ve probably said this before but in my case I like peonies best when they are at this stage before they open. Even though they are really pretty like that as well. But this is my favourite part which sadly is super short.
To give you a little hint – some times if the weather is really hot I put my peonies into the fridge (if there’s room) overnight so that they don’t die too soon.
Wishing you a wonderful evening!
