New pillows good... or are they?

I am pleased to say that I think I've found the cause of the stiff neck that has plagued me all week. I think it's the fault of the new pillow. Or to be more precise, it's because I was using the new pillow plus an old one. We normally have two pillows each, but over time they tend to get flatter and G had started to make occasional complaining noises about how flat his pillows were. So I bought two new ones, threw away the flattest of the old ones and retained the two plumpest ones to use with the new pillows.

G thought it was a big improvement and I thought I was fine, but I woke up the other morning with a stiff neck. I just thought I'd slept in an awkward position and that it would go away after a while. But it persisted and was, if anything, getting worse as the week went on.

And then last night, I woke up feeling uncomfortable and suddenly realised that the pillows might now be too high for me. I therefore threw the old pillow out of the bed and slept on just the new one. This morning, the stiff neck was much improved. I'll try just the one pillow again tonight and see what transpires.

In other news, Zombies Run! continues to amuse me. I'm making slow progress through the episodes, mostly doing 1 per week, though occasionally I manage 2. I still haven't dared switch on the zombie chases though, but I'm thinking about it. If I do venture to try it, they will be very very slow chases. :)

    G wanted to have lunch out at the cafe in Fairbourne. We'd planned to do this a few weeks ago, but the surveying didn't take as long as we thought it…
