I did it last week and now I'm doing it again, a Friday evening "bits and pieces" blog post to end the week with. As with anything that looks like becoming a "regular weekly feature" chez this blog, you can pretty much guarantee it'll do nothing of the sort. For the time being though...

This has not been a fun week, on account of last Sunday night when not long before bed I got a dull pain in my back. It was still there on Monday and has been getting worse as the week went on, getting sharper and less localised - it's now pretty bad at my lower back, slightly right-of-centre. Because of a problem I'd had years ago I didn't want to risk it so went to the doctor yesterday morning. He said it's nothing serious but I need to rest it for a week or two, no gym obviously (annoying as I'd just started losing weight again) and ibuprofen for the pain. Actually I'm taking pretty much any painkillers I can without OD'ing, sometimes that works - at the moment I've taken everything I can but am still in pain and really can't find a comfortable position to sit/stand/lie down in, everything's bad. So as an additional painkiller, the following photo isn't new, but I've been saving it for when I needed cheering up and I think now counts: Jamie Dornan's buttocks. Try to ignore the female.

In happpier news, it's been a few years since Civil Partnerships (for the benefit of Americans and other aliens, that's gay marriage by any other name) have been legal, and I've never been invited to any. Then in the space of one day (Wednesday) I got invited to two, a week apart from each other: Séan and Ian will be getting CP'd in May, just a week after Evil Alex and his other half pip them to the post. Congratulations! Etc.

And some Russell Tovey to end on again; first a funny preview clip from this Sunday's Being Human:

And I've posted this to toveylove but here it is again, Russell talking about Matt Smith taking over as The Doctor:

Sorry dear, there you go.

Very sorry to hear about your back. I know all too well how painful that can be! I hope you feel much, much better very soon.

And as for the CP ... some of us Americans and other aliens actually knew what that meant. I'll have to remember to pop in and congratulate Sean (no clue how to do the correct "e" in LJ) ... maybe he'll remember me.

Thanks; I'm a bit better this morning but then I thought that yesterday morning and by last night I was in agony, so sleep certainly seems to help. I don't have anything planned to do tomorrow so I may try and spend as much of it as possible in bed.

I use this, it's very handy!

Well, I hope today's better lasts! And thanks for the link. Fortunately, I know how to enlarge the print on the screen. LOL
