Sore Backs and Blogs can be Painful and Stressful

Here are some links to my SIDE HUSTLES.

On the BLOG there is some laughter, some tears, some successes and some failures.

Ice cream and chocolate have proven to be the best pain medicine.

Please join me on my journey from painful disc protrusions to (hopefully) a return to normality…

…..and I can help you with your website too.


Matthew’s Back or Matthews’ Back ?

Looking for some inspiration – either from a physical / mental perspective or an inspirational point of view ?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – if I can do it, you can too.

Recovering from a back injury ?  Follow my journey.  Looking to generate an online income ?  Let’s do it together.

Sore Back

Sore Backs

Follow my journey from disc protrusion horizontal painfulness to (hopefully) full recovery vertical awesomeness.  My thoughts, my visits to doctors and physios, my exercises, my embarrassment, my successes, the confirmation of my overall wussy-ness.

Sore Back

Come Backs

Rather than lying on the floor, I’m documenting my return to normality.  Boring stuff like tying my own shoe laces, useful stuff like driving my kids to their next event and exciting stuff like going to the movies and being able to sit and remember it all.

Side Hutles

Side Hustles

Here it gets interesting. Join me as I show and explain what I’m doing to earn a side income via my online side hustles.  Let me help you with your website bits and pieces, or just believe that if I can do it, then you can too.

Tech Talk

Let’s get our geek on, put on our propeller hats and go all nerdy.  Or, I’ll do my best to explain technical website stuff – hopefully in a way that makes more sense than html code and sql querries.


Embarrassing Efforts

Watch and feel uncomfortable as I attempt feeble exercises.  They are good for me, apparently.

Sympathise with me

And I’ll sympathise with you !  Lower back pain hurts, so let’s get better together.  Or you can just mutter “glad it’s him and not me”.


Tired of the Rat Race ?

Perhaps we can explore and create a few Side Hustles together…
