Oh, Joe I am SO sorry you have hurt your neck again!!I wish there was something I could do or some adcvie I could offer It is amazing that you are managing to turn your negative into a positive though, this is one of the many reason you inspire not just me, but I'm sure anyone else who may be reading your blog!! I have not done yoga before, but am also thinking about giving it a go!I used to dance (for many years) and I seem to have stiffened up' for lack of a better term, and would love to work on getting some of my flexibility and balance back!!Please let me know how you go with it!! Oh and I haven't heard from Richie in a while (I'm sure he's flat out with work and all though) but I hope he is doing well! I had a dream the other night (yep, dream!! No nightmares for 4 nights in a row) in which you, Richie, Chris and myself all decided to go to Thailand for a holiday and to meet up.It was funny, because as I haven't seen Richie before and don't know what he looks like my subconscious obviously couldn't create his face or something, because every time we spoke, his face was hidden behind a plant, or beach-ball, or fence, or anything haha kinda like Wilson off Home Improvement LOL I thought it was hilarious when I woke up! Anyway, I hope your neck isn't causing you too much grief today Have a great day!! x x
