Literally having a ball!

My fantastic mother-in-law had a brandless big soft rubber ball sitting forever deflated lest grandkids coax it into motion (and thus destruction), so she brought it across.

Now I get to do back-stretching physio again: calves on ball, backside on bed; straighten legs to lift rear end, wince, hyper-straighten legs to make calves rigid on ball — relax a little and repeat six times — then relax all over, settle down, repeat all of the above five more times.

Not dignified — doesn’t look it either — but it does unknot my self-wretching back and legs quite well.
