Taking a nose dive!


What's been happening? Well the most significant news is that a week ago, in my typical mad rush to do a zillion things at once I rushed out to the boot of my car (to hide my eldest son's Christmas gifts) put my foot down a hole, sprawled myself across the road and subsequently was told by the hospital the following morning that I had torn the ligaments in my ankle. A week later, ankle elevated I'm still in pain and frankly I'm considering getting in touch with MI5 to suggest they use daytime TV as a form of torture, either them or lovely Jack in 24.. mmmm...oops I digress!

Forced rest - what's that all about?? Actually aside from the pain which I am numbing with the odd glass or two of red and prescribed pain killers, I have to admit that for the first time in ages I have time to chat on the phone, time to read the whole of the Radio Times, watch TV adverts (not pre-record everything and have my finger poised over FF) and drink a hot cup of tea. So sensibly I need to take note and when back to full fitness (uh hum!) take the time to look at the sky, watch the flowers and all those feel good things - will I? Would you?? Nah - I'll be chasing down to Sainsbury's and panicking about de-scaling the kettle - normal life will resume and I probably wouldn't cope any other way! :-)

Aw sweetie, sorry to hear you're still in so much pain. Can empathise with you on the red wine pain killer and daytime TV...nooooooooooo, not good for the soul.

Try to rest and take care, no gallivanting about...ha xx

I'm also enjoying some enforced rest at the moment - but sadly without the red wine!

Wishing you well soon Helen... I had a little tragedy today.. wine box ran out and seeing as I can't 'run out' to get another one, sadly I shall be without red wine too!! :-(

Ouch that sounds so painful. I do hope you take it a little easy, although enforced rest is not an easy thing to deal with sometimes.
