Oops, I did it again!
Broke my toe, that is. First time was in NZ last year, when I whacked it into a low concrete wall in my brother's garden.
This time all it took was a door frame. A bloody door frame! I went swimming, semi-body-boarding (alas, no waves, so no fun), snorkeling, tramped through a gorge and drove for hours, but it wasn't any of these interesting things that got me, it was just walking through a door. I don't even think I was drunk, I'd had only one pint of beer several hours earlier, in fact I was on my way to the fridge to get the wine.
I was going to leave it, but then I hit it again yesterday, on a door again - the dinner out, drinks with friends at two pubs, two English lessons, shopping, delivery of kids to camp and attendance at said camp's camp fire and smores feast last night all were fine - I did myself in getting a nappy out of the closet! It hurt so much I actually did cry! So I decided to go in and get it seen to.
So, I am on rest and elevation, which is not easy! Laundry, shopping, cooking... even my proofreading is proving hard, as I have to try to elevate the foot - not easy when you are typing! My other computer is lower, with a floor chair, but my wireless won't work for some reason, so I've spent the day trying to fix that. Sheesh!
Erica's being kept happy with Dora DVDs, but she misses her sisters I am sure. I think I will be lining them up for more stays at friends' houses though, as hobbly limping no-swimming Mummy is so NOT fun for the summer holidays!
