Today (this evening), is Adelaide's annual Zombie Walk.
Each year, people dressed as Zombies gather in one of our parks, then proceed to walk around a pre-arranged route around the city.
Each person participating brings an item of non-perishable food to donate to FOODBANK SA.
This is an organisation that helps homeless or low income families by giving food where necessary and by delivering food hampers at Christmas to those that would otherwise have nothing.
I planned on going this year (had my non-perishables ready), and taking photos along the way, but had to stay home with back pain.
You see, my brother, R, who I rarely see, is coming to visit me tomorrow, bringing his girlfriend, V, whom I have never met, so I thought I should clean up the pigsty a little.
All was progressing nicely, then I vacuumed the floors. When I tried to straighten up, I found I couldn't.
Bugger! My back had done its thing, just like it always does. So I hobbled over to the couch and laid flat with my legs up over the arm rest and fell asleep.
Since waking up, I've walked around the yard a bit, done some gentle stretching, had dinner, (pancakes, yum), and now I don't feel quite so achy and stiff. But I'll be sleeping with a hot water bottle tonight.
So, I've missed the Zombies, but I'll be there next year, with camera.
