Today ain't been a good one for me, joint wise, and this little ditty has just popped into my head: if you too have had a rough day try singing this. :wink:

I see trees of green, red roses too,
I feel them hurt, for me and for you,
And I think to myself
What an arthritic world.

I see skies of grey, and clouds of black,
The dull cursed day, then the dark, awful night,
And I think to myself
What an arthritic world.

The colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky,
Are foul in my joints and people wonder why
When they shake my hand, I wince with pain,
Whilst heartily wishing it won't come again

I hear babies cryin', I watch them grow
I hope they never learn what I've come to know
And I think to myself
What an arthritic world . . . . .

Yeees I think to myself,
What an arthritic world.

    I promise you if I try to sing anything your day will only get worse :oops: but well done on converting pain into creativity. I hope tomorrow is better. (((())))

    Thank you everyone, if I raised a smile then I am happy! Thanks to appalling weather today has been worse than yesterday but no matter, tomorrow might bring an improvement. :wink: Last winter so was so mild I had forgotten how winter can work against one, so bring on the summer so the PsA can have a go! :lol:

    I hope that everyone is having a better day than me but if you're not I truly empathise. DD

    Oh Mig, thank you - that's a good 'un and no mistake! :D You've made a good start so are you willing to pass the ball so others can try to run with it? Thinking of passing balls the Six Nations begins very soon - that will cheer the dull winter weekends no end, methinks! DD

    PS I hope Mr Mig enjoys tomorrow.

    I think adding more to that would only spoil it. As usual, mig's succinctness lends an extra something – in this case poignancy.

    I add my wishes to hers, just as sincere but more prosaic.

    I love it DD!! And I will be singing it to make myself smile. Totally brilliant and only you could be clever enough to do that. As I have always said you are the brains of the forum! :wink:
