I had just finished the last of the Christmas preparations, presents bought, wrapping paper, ribbons and labels ready to use. So on the way home from the shops I decided to stop off at the dog park so that the Lovely Miss Lotte could have a walk.
I let her out the car and followed her only to slip on some loose gravel.
The result? A fractured ankle and a lovely red Santa boot to wear for the next 8 weeks

I was finishing lunch. I pushed the chair back from the table when, unfortunately, the chair leg tangled with the rug making the chair topple with me still sitting in it.
The result? A call for help. My large Grandson came down to lift me up while the other one put me in the car and took me to the hospital.
The outcome? 5 hours wait at A & E to be told there was no point in attempting surgery for a fractured shoulder. Bed rest for a few days and take it easy for the next couple of weeks. See you in 10 days.
Outcome No 2 Rugs rolled up and put away and days just lying in bed feeling stupid/embarrassed and knowing we didn’t need this at this time.
Moral – When told by the physiotherapist to remove rugs, remove them and don’t bring them out again. Live without them.
So now I’m thinking of not having a Chrismas tree this year. Hard to dress a tree with only the left hand operational and unless somebody does it for me, gifts may not be wrapped.
But I want to wish you all a very Happy Christmas, Hanukah or however you celebrate this time of the year. Take Care if you’re driving particularly if you live in the Northern Hemisphere.
