Pride? What pride?

They say pride comes before a fall.
But I certainly didn't feel proud when I fell over in the street last week.
Especially as I splatted straight onto my knee.

The same knee that I had a series of operations on a couple of decades ago.
The one that has no cushioning in the joint.
The one that had me hobbling to grueling physio sessions 5 times a week for a year.
The one that took all that time to heal when I was in my 20s with supposedly fast powers of recovery.

The same one that is still swollen with technicolour bruising 6 days after I fell ...

You poor thing! Many, many hugs.

Aw thanks, Pierre. I'm hoping that a combination of arnica and sympathy will ensure a swift recovery this time.

And another hug from me... take good care!

It's looking satisfyingly spectacular - looks worse than it feels which is so much better than the other way round.

FB says it looks like I've spilled a bottle of ink over my knee. He has a good ear for a simile, that boy.

(good for the sympathy vote)

Oh no! I'm so sorry, Debi! Hope there's no real harm done.

Leslie - if I posted pix my blog definitely would be considered offensive.

Wordtryst - just call me Hopalong Chastity.
