Autumn nearly?

Looking at the picture of my bruised face gives me a definite shudder, so I shall resolve to post some other photos before long. I had to seek further medical advice and it has been confirmed that I did indeed suffer a concussion.  As that can take 6 to 12 weeks recuperation I feel quite relieved., that means I can take my time to get better and have a good excuse to dilly or dally over the next wee while.

Re: the inauguration of The Anniversary Month, it was not an unqualified success because of the fall, but we did manage some special treats:

  • Visit to the Royal Yacht in Leith – most enjoyable, especially the apple tart, which of course I should not have had. It was a special treat, what more can I say?
  • Trip to the Scottish Parliament: not much to see as it was the holiday time and the debating chamber was closed for some wiring work. However, it was good to see the architecture first hand and get a sense of the sheer scale and quality of the design.
  • Visit to see Grandchildren of #1
  • Few nights away in campervanning – culminating in the trip, but meaning that it was possible to follow the good weather.
  • Retail Therapy in the sales – specifically two handbags, one bright pink, the other donkey brown with pale pink trimming. Both have had outings already.
  • Retail Therapy on ebay: fluffy cairn toy, (I couldn’t resist), 10 emery boards, 2 parker pens and a lip-brush. (The brush needed HBTW to show me how it worked – ie retracted…… I know how to put on lipstick, not that I can use make-up yet, my face is still too mauve and yellow.)
  • Friends visited and we set the world to rights.

So – a good month on the whole and to be repeated next year, if we are spared and well, as my Granny used to say. I’ve still to catch up with friends’ blogs, so shan’t weary.

    I’m sorry to hear your fall was so serious Freda, though I must say your facial colour scheme sounds most attractive!
    Do take the instructions to take it easy to heart for all our sakes, not just your own.
    I hope Misty hasn’t seen the fluffy Cairn toy, she will think she has been supplanted. It’s nice to know you and your visitors have set the world to rights. Now I can sleep at night.

    I echo Ray about your color scheme. My facial bruises have been few and never with sophistication of yours, just purple and sickly green and yellow. And do dilly dally with due diligence. Looking forward to a report of healing and well being.

    I hope you are taking special care to follow doctor’s orders. I had a concussion ten years ago when my Old English Sheepdog pulled me flat down on the sidewalk when I was walking him (he saw a bicyclist and decided to run after him). I was ringy-dingy for months afterward, and never have actually returned to my brazen sense of self-confidence. As my husband laughingly tells me: “That day ended your football career!”

    Take good care of yourself.

    It’s good to know you’re on the mend and you sound cheerful and relaxed. I’m a bit envious, not of your black eye but of your present peace of mind.

    Happy to hear you are on the road to recovery. I don’t know if the church in the photo was in Lincoln or not. I realized when the trip ended I had been in almost every county in England. Since then I have made many trips to England, some with camera in hand some not, always photographig churches and cathedrals. I know I shot Durham and York Minster, but haven’t found them yet. We made it to Scotland on the first trip, but I chucked those slides long ago for various reasons. I was very bad about labeling my photos.
