Falling down


Now I hope I don’t look quite as dozy as this image has made me look. Yesterday morning on a campsite not too far from here, I took myself, an umbrella (large), a towel, shower gel and shampoo and self in well-worn floppy shoes to the toilet block. As HBTW said later – an accident waiting to happen. The toilet block is immaculate – thank goodness – so the trip up the step and consequent bang onto the floor was not as bad as it might have been. However, I gave one young girl a terrible fright and did find myself wondering who it was that was making the terrible moaning noise. “Ooooooohhhhh!!”

Be cheered that I did not swear, did not break any bones, did not break my glasses which I was looking for afterwards: in fact I hadn’t worn them. I did not even have to go to A&E as a very kind doctor appeared and checked me over.  Today has seen an ever-increasing range of colours expanding over the left side of my forehead and face. Every time HBTW looks at me he says “Ahhh” then proceeds to laugh. I, on the other hand have declared a Day Off. We are off to the Dance Class tonight, but I may need to sit a few out.

More tales of the Anniversary Month in a day or two. In the meantime, don’t fall over.

    My dear Freda, think of the fantastic stories you could spin about that black eye! It’s a good thing you didn’t do damage to your hip. That’s what I fear in falling. Hope the color fades very soon.

    Honestly Freda. The lengths some people will go to to get attention!

    Hope you’re not going to make a habit of it. but if you are, choose a fly-weight as your opponent next time.

    Or you could try wearing body armour.

    Best wishes for a speedy (and pretty) recovery.

    Falls at our age the most dangerous and more common as our sense of balance is not as great as it used to be, and our eyesight is not the best. So glad it as not horrible and swearing or not would not affect me. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t, but I am not a former member of the clergy. Glad you look well and have a sharp gleam in your eye.

    Oh my dear friend! When I looked at this picture I said out loud, “Oh, my dear friend!” Have read in a later post that you did have a concussion. Having been the victim of one in the past I can say that you must take very good care of yourself. Hugs.
