Here's Another Fine Mess You've Got Me Into!
Guess where I spent yesterday afternoon? I was walking B Baggins by the river and slipped on a wet stone and I knew straightaway that it wasn't good news. My brilliant daughter came from work (DH was away) and took me to A & E at Northern General Hospital where X-Rays showed a broken left wrist. I had a local anaesthetic in the wrist joint and they manoevred a piece of broken bone back into place and then pulled two pieces apart that had jammed together before putting this temporary cast on. It actually sounds worse than it was but poor J probably has a crushed hand from me hanging on to her! I have to say that all the staff who helped me were brilliant - kind, friendly and efficient.I have to go back tomorrow for the proper cast which I can apparently choose the colour of and have glitter on if I want - watch this space!
DH is now back home on dog walking and kitchen duties and I shall have a lot of spare time on hands for a few weeks. Since I can type with one finger there may be one or two posts starting with my recent trip to London.
I hasten to add that B Baggins was a totally innocent bystander in this, it was entirely my own fault for wearing trainers instead of proper walking boots!
