Ouch, I was collecting some laundry from the laundrette, and I was putting the bags in the car (lots of laundry, I’d changed the beds) so I opened the boot and was lifting the first bag up when crack, off the path I fell and right down on my right ankle! Ouch! I had to stay on the ground, I had that sick feeling you get when something has gone wrong and really hurts! I was sitting on the path, two bags of laundry lying on the road beside me, a man actually pulled over to ask was I OK! I of course being the idiot that I am said, Oh I’m fine, don’t worry about me, no I don’t need a hand up, I don’t need you put the bags in my car, I stood up, unable to put any weight on my foot! I got into the car, sent my son to get me a cold drink of water from the spar, I felt so scared, my ankle was swelling already, I was wearing my Converse boot sneakers and I could feel it getting tighter! I had to drive home, so I did, in great pain!
So now I have been sitting with ice on my ankle, I took two panadol, the only painkillers I can take when pregnant, so fingers crossed it will go down! Still in agony! I did manage to order my son’s school books though for September, so I got something done!
