Now in polite circles in the UK that's not a word to be bandied around lightly. In New Zealand it can be heard even on the croquet lawns from the lips of refined 90 + year young ladies who would think it's restricted use in the UK very odd indeed.
Anyway on the lawns this afternoon I said something like 'Oh dear, that's inconvenient!' as I bent over to take a shot and a searing pain went across my back and through my hips. That was the end of my croquet for the day - and probably for a week or two as well. We shall see.
New Zealand is a good place for such an accident to happen though. Within the hour I was on the physio's table having my back examined and worked on. I have another appointment tomorrow afternoon. I'd be lucky to see a physio in the UK for weeks - I'd probably be better before I could see one.
So this evening I am stiff and sore but I can walk. I hope that I can get out of bed tomorrow!
