THERE SHE GOES

I haven't been on my computer for over a week now I do have a good excuse, the reason being.....
Last Sunday, I was playing !!! in the garden with Rebecca and for some reason I lost my footing and hubby said I went down like a lump of concrete - charming description!! - face first onto the grass. It felt as though I had landed on concrete, I remember going, 'oh no oh no oh no' then I was flat on the grass. Because I cannot move my head my poor nose got the shock of the landing along with my knees, boobs and stomach.

So OK now I am on the grass in total shock at being there and unable to move.

After what seemed a lifetime, I managed to get on my back, cannot tell you the pain, but worse was to come.

Hubby pulled me up so I was now sitting on the grass, then we tried to figure a way of getting me up, I suggested steps of varying heights so I could work my way up slowly, but no, he grabbed under my arms and in one movement, yanked me up, I know I screamed my head off, as he was actually giving me a Chinese burn under my arms, but he didn't know that of course.
Anyway, to stop you all being bored, I managed to get in, went to bed as couldn't sit or stand, was uncomfortable laying down but had to do something. I fell asleep anyway and kind of slept the week away.

Nothing got broken, only my pride I guess, thank goodness I was at home not out somewhere, but the bruising, Oh my, agony all week, but not one bruise has shown up anywhere, the only bit you can see that I have done something is my glasses nipped the skin on my eye and cut it a little. I still ache all over, but am doing a bit of sewing in the day to get me back into the swing of things and get my mind off the aches and pains.

It is now over a week since I fell, and I do feel a lot better although I am wary of going out, guess I am afraid I shall fall again. Today, hubby took me up to the centre and we had a slow mooch round the shops, had lunch and a coffee then came home.  I think it has shaken my confidence a bit as it was so unexpected, and damn painful.  I just hope because nothing showed up, there is nothing going to 'surprise' me in a few weeks or months time!!!!
**************************

On a cheerier note, both my winners have been in touch with me, Erin has let me know the colour she would like for her bag, well, maybe those colours, she is not too sure, left it to me so we shall see, I chose them today actually and have started it Erin.

Katy has also been in touch and I am absolutely thrilled with what she is going to send me, she asked me first could she do 'this' particular quilt as she had nothing done, I jumped at it. Just hope she will like what I do with it. Looking forward to receiving it I can tell you. She has also given me permission to put it on here. Cheers Katy, I am very grateful to you.
