Poor Pat's back is having great fun making her suffer. The doctor came and prescribed stretching, massage, ibuprofen and paracetamol and a kind of muscle relaxant thing. The pills work well but she still needs them, sadly. She's better than she was, but it's not great.
Meanwhile Catrin is slightly under the weather.
Speaking of the weather, we just had a really cold spell - overnight temperatures well under freezing, some daytime peaks of 3 or 4. Brrr. We can get the bedrooms warm, but the living room is a struggle, even with the wood-stove well lit and blazing. However the forecast from now on is much milder and today the drizzle is back.
