Three in a Row and a Bonus ...

... as an old TV programme used to say ...


You realise, of course, that I'm heading for the sympathy vote here ...


Having spent the day gently painting things for the Old Town Hall and generally taking it fairly easy, Sunday afternoon television and all that, I was just coming downstairs with my things to take next door for my nightly sleepover, when there was an almighty crash/thud/bang ...


Pauley has a sciatic nerve that plays up periodically and every now and again his left leg gives way ... which is what it did at 11.15 pm ... with no warning. So there he was in a heap in the porch having banged his head (all OK) and bitten his lip as he fell (no long-lasting damage thankfully). So ... having hauled him up off the floor and wiped up the can of lager he had just that minute opened which had fizzed all over the floor after being thrown all over the place ... I was about to go out of the back door when I heard a little voice saying hello? hello? ...


It was Mum! She'd heard a crash/thud/bang which she had convinced herself was a burglar climbing in an upstairs window, and had walked round in the dark, hanging on to the wall, with legs like jelly (she doesn't do the dark well at the best of times). A certain amount of sound carries between the two houses and what she had actually heard was P. Anyway, all 3 of us then limped round to her house, P checked over the house, Mum had a brandy and I just laughed. What else could I do? P then went home and I'm glad to say he's still in one piece this morning, albeit a bit shaky. Mum KNEW she wouldn't sleep all night, but she snored rather well for someone lying awake. Me? My foot's a lot better today, although I'm still going to rest it as much as I can while I have the chance. Anyway, that's our 3 things out of the way. Hopefully we can now get our acts together and not worry each other half to death.

Thought you might like to see these amazing clouds. I took it one evening last week.





Have a jolly day ... and take care out there!!

What's going on in your house? Maybe you should all invest in the "Michelin Man" type suits to walk around in to keep you safe!

Hope you're all fixed up again soon!

My goodness! I hope everyone is all right! Enough of the mishaps... you deserve only good after all of that! (And ewwww... having to clean up all that sticky lager!) =)

They say things come in threes, so with a bit of luck you've had your quota. All very painful, but I have to admit to supressing a giggle when I imagined the three of you limping in the dark over to Mum's house, a bit like the Three Stooges.

Hi Sue

Have you and your family heard a rumour that there's a new category for the olympics?!! Wonder what we should call it!!!

Don't even think about applying for personal accident insurance - I should think the premiums would be far too high!

Hope you will all be fully restored to health soon (now I'm off to wipe the tears of laughter away!)

see you there! said...

So maybe the hub thought you and your mom were getting all the attention?

I agree with what another poster said, first thing that entered my mine was the old comedy routine of the Three Stooges.

You gave us all a good laugh in any case.
