coming clean...

in a manner of speaking LOL

Ok, so here's the real reason I haven't really been around. A certain witch may laugh her head off :p [ it's funny now but wasn't at first] but I was stepping out of the shower and *someone* had left catalogues on the floor [ Mr Nobody, apparently!] and I stood on a particularly glossy one and went a over t and then down like a sack of shit onto the tiled floor. So, I've been hobbling around as I wiped out the major ligaments that run through the hip, my knee and my ankle as well as irritating the crap out of those joints.

I haven't been able to sit for long periods, so I have resorted to lying back in a weird reclining position in order to read everyone's blogs. As well as lurking in google reader practically wishing people to hurry up and give me something to read! dammit! I'm glad I have a wireless mouse as I've been using the bed as a mousepad to scroll as I haven't been able to reach the keyboard LOL

I am supposed to be in bed resting for a couple more days but last night played hookey for an hour and we went to the Bendigo Says Thanks! concert so I could watch the Choirboys play live :-) Diesel, Angry Anderson & Dragon with a new lead singer was also there but by then I'd had enough of balancing on one leg and we left. It was a great event though and free as well! I know a lot of people here really appreciated them putting it on and truly enjoyed the music.

Husband was sent on a mission to buy The Age on Saturday so I could read a particular article which btw, was excellent. Ann, thx for reminding me AND telling me what page number!:-)

Today I was banished back to the weird reclining position by the husband but it's getting better every day. I've been able to sit up for long enough to write this today :-) tomorrow I want to start getting back to work. If there is one thing I really truly hate it's having nothing to do.

Well, that's it, I've run out of steam, see you tomorrow!

YOU Get well soon and for godsakes do rest.

Jayne said...

OUCH!
Hope you're feeling better soon and can return to the chorus line to Can Can your way through life ;)

oh jayne when I read your comment I could hear a cacophany of cracking cartilages in the Can-Can Dancers Retirement Home. They must all creak like old jockeys and old footballers.

Jayne: I hope so too! even if I have to be held together by rubber bands and safety pins LOL

Brownie : How did you go today? Did they find out what is wrong with you? Your pinched bits I mean :p

Bwca Brownie said...

oh yes thank you.
had the scan thing.
got a CD of it.
return to quack for next step -

"Yes it's a pinched nerve alright. do some exercise".

quack makes $100
scan place makes $300

patient learns lesson.
when really ill, take to bed and stay there avoiding all the faffing about the above process required.

I do hope you are taking it slowly.

Ozfemme said...

Holy effing ouch. rest up and get better... although you've probably gone and done most of that by now.

What bad luck, for me, I was looking for some help moving bluestones.

What were you doing with magazines in the shower, they're for reading in the bath or having the butler read them to you.
