Can you believe it?! We got snow again Thought the white winter was about finished by now, but I was wrong. A good thing to be about this matter if you ask MT He screamed of joy this morning when he discovered it, soon we’re off to kindergarten and hopefully a day outside in the snow for his part.
I only wish I could say it was the snow that caused my fall on Monday…..
I was in a hurry and on my way to the store, on the way to my car I was to drop some garbage in the garbage tin outside so I had to turn a bit to the right while going down the stairs. I’m not quite sure what caused it, maybe my shoes or a rock in the wrong place, but suddenly I found myself crashing to the ground!!! As I fell I heard a soft snapping sound (can such sounds be soft? well, it was…) from my right foot and was half expecting to find it broken when I tried to get up again. It was not, I kind of knew that but the humbling thought of managing to break my leg right outside my door kept me from thinking straight – adding to that I was going to the store mostly for my friend who’s jumping around on crouches after an operation a few weeks ago; she was watching MT while I was in a hurry falling…. But the leg was sore and swollen. And I felt like an idiot falling like that and hoped no one saw me (it was dark, thank you very much ;)). It’s not the first time I’ve done this, but it’s been good for a while now…
Anyhow I’m trying to slow down, put the leg up high whenever I can and to concentrate on not falling again!! Right now I’m loving the automatic gear in my car.
