eating those words. . .

. . ."this year is going to be such a good one". . .you recall reading that sentence in my last post. . .?
Famous last words.
I had an unfortunate little accident and started the year with 2 cracked ribs, and one side of my chest is magnificently multi-coloured (a black-and-bloob?)

You couldn’t make it up could you?
I’m sure I'd see the funny side of it if only laughing wasn't so painful!!

Looking forward to 2013. . .

Calamity Elaine indeed!You poor thing. I do sympathise about the pain and the multi-coloured bloob and hope it all heals quickly. There's still a lot of 2012 to go yet - I'm sure it will get better for you and I'll look forward to seeing your cheery smile when we're both out searching for vintage treasures at Shepton etc. Cx

I heard of trying to live life more colourfully, but that's going a bit far! Hope you're soon feeling 100% again.

Elaine, you poor dear, how sad! I won't even ask how it happened as it is usually something we want to forget! Behave yourself and get plenty of rest so you can heal up. I send a very gentle hug and I am mentally sitting with you sipping tea. xo

Oh no Elaine, I hope Bruce had nothing to do with your injury. I got squashed by Spotty once. He didn't mean to do it, I just got in the way!
Mend soon and TAKE CARE!

Trixie@ the vintage bothy said...

ow! poor Miss Bunny, obviously you had misplaced your usual bounce! Obviously Ted was not at hand as he would have caught you in those big strong arms, in a Mr Darcy sort of way..............try and smile if it doesn't hurt.
