Sat in a well known cafe this morning in Bulwell & a bloke walks in,orders his tea & toast & then sits down, nowt odd there you think but his skirt & bright pink finger nails made me realise something wasn't quite right. ooerr.

 

You mean it didn't quite fit right?  :crazy:

Been in the Lincolnshire Poacher tonight to listen to a friend of ours and his mate performing, (Baron Lewis) they apparently have live music in there on a Sunday night.  We’d never heard him singing before and we’re pleasantly surprised, it was a great night.  Walked there and back from home as it’s not too far but slipped over on the icy pavement when I was nearly home, landed on my bum and hurt my wrist. It’s not swollen but really painful right now.  Hopefully it’ll be improved in the morning!

hope you feeling better Lizzie, too much Merlot on Mansfield road, stick to lattes in Deliliah !!!!LOL 

of course until we get together in that undisclosed location at the end of each month , when you need a few Merlots to keep pace with the music and the people

You lot will be giving me a bad reputation.  These allegations of alcohol being the cause of my little accident last night are completely unfounded!! 

 

We believe you Lizzie but thousands wouldn't !  smile2

Happy to report there’s a slight improvement with my wrist, luckily it’s my left one.  Thanks all for your concern, even though most of you think it’s self-inflicted!

Not wishing to be left out of the 'I fell over...' theme.. :)

Last week, I was standing at the end of the bar in the Cavern Club with Picko and Daz from Boowul.  Also present was Tony Coburn.  Tony said something and I turned slightly to face him whereupon my left knee ( normally the better of the two) decided to completely collapse.  Me being a ltlle 'impaired' by four or five pints of beer, I was unable to react quickly enough by grabbing the bar and went down like the proverbial 'sack of spuds.'  Ended up on my back on the floor, with the other three fussing around and picking me up.  It took me a while to convince them that I was OK.. but no harm done..

 

I can confirm that allegations of Alcohol being involved in this incident are entirely correct..  But I still don't know why my knee gave out.

 

Joys of ageing eh? :blink:

Aye What, While we are talking about falling down, Hubbs can go one better, last week.   He fell up!!!

 

On his way upstairs with my morning cuppa (I know, I know. I'm spoilt). He got to the turn at the top of the stairs and misjudged a step, (Dint lift his foot up high enough) He lunged forward,  hit his face on the wall and slid down, leaving a red track all the way down to the skirting board. We didn't realise it was part of him until he turned round. Bless him, he looks like he's done ten rounds with 'Carni Bugner'. 

 

How the heck the tea reached the ceiling I don't know, but judging by the walls and paintwork, it would have been a rather large mug of tea. Joking apart, a few days of aches and pains and a scabby mush, I'm pleased to say he is still beautiful and almost walking upright again.:)

 

Just been catching up on the posts, and I hope all of you falling down people are on the mend again. It's a bit worrying int it Miducks.:)

To prevent this from happening again - live in a bungalow.:rotfl:

C'mon, you know the words, 'Pick yourself up, dust yourself down, and start all over again'. Life in a nutshell !

Ian, I agree with you. The consequences of falling especially at our ages can be very serious. I also had a near miss last week. Serves me right, I spotted a cobweb and instead of getting the steps I stood on the pouffe and on reaching out I started to wobble, before I knew it  both me and the pouffe were wobbling in different directions. I made a grab for the mantelpiece, which didn't help much, so I shut my eyes, jumped off and hoped for the best.  I'm still here? Lesson learnt. Steps next time.:biggrin:

Ian, so are these 'banned' substances / activities just for now, or for ever?   Cliff of Mohor - is this a bit like Beachy Head?

The problems I have now.. according to my latest hospital meeting could be related to a bad fall I had ..going back to 2007. It was now I am typing!....February 13th..Saturday?  There is a lot of scar tissue in me nut apparently... no flying,booze ,excitement, ladder work or coffee.

Ash Wednesday today,so no meat...all this talk of Berni Inns going on.

Good Catholic boy. That’s what I like to see. Many years ago, when my firm had a Dublin factory, the managers had to get dispensation from the priest to eat meat if they were over in England on a Friday. They always had steaks!
