STUPID, STUPID, STUPID!.........that is exactly what I was yesterday morning!!

I did a very STUPID thing yesterday and thought that it would be a good idea to climb up onto the kitchen worktop to try to get something that was high up in the kitchen cupboard. I somehow managed to slip and fell from the top of the worktop and hit my head on the metal kitchen bin. I instinctively knew that I had hurt myself quite badly and that was before I had managed to scrape myself off the kitchen floor and before I saw how much blood was involved.

After a LOT of crying and a LOT of panicking ~ and whilst trying not to bleed all over the new carpets ~ I managed to pull myself together enough to phone my by now very worried husband who zoomed home from work in record time and rushed me to A & E.

To cut a long story short and as it was a head injury I got seen by a Doctor straight away and I have now got 4 metal staples holding my head together and am suffering from the after effects of concussion. Oh! And my head really, really hurts! A LOT!!

Now it has to be said that I never normally need much of an excuse to put my feet up and take it easy ~ but I am enjoying being made a fuss of and have had breakfast in bed and a never ending supply of tea being sent up to me by a very wonderful husband who has taken the day off work to look after his very stupid wife.

I have also got the ideal excuse to sit in bed and maybe crochet a little ~ or a lot! ~ and I have made a start on a very soothing little ripple pattern just to take my mind off my poor little head.

I hope that everyone has a very lovely weekend and I hope to be up and about next week to catch up with all your bloggy news :O) xx

Yikes! I am feeling dizzy already from that initial shock from the fall.
That was really frightening. But we tend to go against our 'instincts' sometimes and end up paying for them. I would consider this lesson learnt.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
