Buzz dog snow watching
It is hard to believe that we had such a bad winter, on a day like today, but cast your minds back to December 2010, the 3rd, to be precise. This was the day that my life and craft life went a bit pear shaped. It had snowed the day before, and then over night, and froze again. Making the paths very slippery. As I had an appointment at the doctors, I thought, 'come on gal, put your wellies on and walk'!
I slipped on an icy patch on a downward slope and landed on my wrist and couldn't get up. A couple of lovely people helped me up and took me to the doctors. However, I ended up in A&E with alot of other people with leg and arm injuries!
It turned out, after about 4 hours of waiting, I had fractured my wrist in several places and smashed it up so badly I needed surgery! All I wanted to do was to go home to see if Buzz dog was ok, but I was informed that I had to stay! After 5 days in hospital, I was finally allowed to go home with a new accessory, a metal plate and pins holding all the bones together.
After a lot of pain, rest and exercise, I am now pleased to say that it is back to a 'new' normal! It won't ever be the same again or like my good wrist but it is pretty good, and functional, thankfully!
So not much crafting has been done, but I am getting 'back in the saddle' so to speak and hoping to get going again soon. I've missed it. I did think my crafting days were over so it is brilliant to feel that I can do it again.
Much to my amusement, I was informed by the A&E nurse who admitted me that the injury I did, is called the 'Granny' injury, as it is usually old ladies who fall over and break their wrist! (I am nearly 40, not quite granny status yet). Well, I thought on occasion, I could be perceived as a 'bit of a granny', with my crocheting and knitting I do, so that's cool!
Anyway, enjoy the lovely sunshine we are having now and I should be back soon.
