At least there's one saving grace then Dave.

Now it can be told. Thinking that you have had enough of my medical problems I have not reported that back in October I fractured my right shoulder. I was crossing Hucknall Road outside of the hospital; it was rush hour with the traffic solid and creeping along. I walked, safely, in front of a lorry with a big gap in front of it. I did not trip but felt myself stumbling forwards. I could not save myself and fell heavily. Keeping my head high I fell on my right shoulder. I could not get up, and the lorry driver got out of his cab and helped me to the pavement. The shoulder felt sore, the bus came and I went home. An hour later I was in the doctors, who said she could not detect anything broken. Next day I was in QMC A&E where and x-ray showed a big crack just below the ball and socket. What followed was the most inconvenient two months of my life. For 78 years I have used my right hand/arm to do almost everything. Now it was only my left hand/arm. My God, talk about inconvenience. Climbing Everest was easier than getting out of bed. Even wiping my backside left-handed was totally alien. No driving. Hospital visits for checks and exercise routines. I am almost back to normal now (but not quite). It should not surprise you that there is no-one on this planet who is more careful than me when they are walking. The only advantage of this predicament was that I had three months without drying the pots.    

 

Really glad to hear you're on the mend Dave, must be something contagious, only this morning I read on here about LizzieM slipping over, Lets be careful out there people !

Truly sorry to hear of your accident and subsequent trials, Dave.  I hope that you are able to make a full recovery even if you do have to dry the pots again.  :)

How about this for getting out of drying the pots:

Tea towels/dishcloths etc are potential breeding grounds for all sorts of nasty organisms which easily get transferred to the pots during hand drying. Far more hygienic to allow the pots to drain and air dry before putting away. :)

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!!

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:

Well,. I'd give it a like, but it just wouldn't seem right.  Glad there was no lasting injury except maybe a bit of hurt pride.  ;)

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.:)
