Fricking dodgy back....

So there I was last night cheerfully preparing my dinner anticipating a night of large scale death and destruction, bent down to grab some cheese out of the fridge as I went to straighten up my damned back decides that's the moment to "go".

I promised myself that I'd spend a few days bumming around and generally recharging my batteries, and then get to work on finishing off the games room (or second bedroom as probably everyone else would refer to it). After a few days of frenzied (well, moderate) activity the decorating part of it is done, much to my relief.
