AFTER .. your grandson helps out by tying your shoe laces just a bit too loose .. so that they come undone in the middle of the supermarket ....and your son re-ties them so tightly you feel as if your toes have lost their blood supply .... DITCH the lace-ups and find a pair of slippers/shoes/sandals .. anything that you can slip on !!
WHEN ... the family try to help you on/off with your coat they DONOT want to bump your arm ... SO find your biggest coat.. or borrow one from a bigger person .. do it up .. and put it on over your head ... IT WORKS!
BE PREPARED... that all the "things" you normally use will be on your wrong side eg. toilet-roll holders .. bed side light switch .. you can get round it .. just a bit of lateral thinking will do it xx
YOU WILL DISCOVER.. just how many of your trousers do up on your wrong side! However that cardigan that went all baggy but you could not bring yourself to throw away will be PERFECT to fit over the back-cast x
TRY to remember when others share their slip/trip/fall/broken bone story.. its the first TODAY time for them!! Remember you now have a story to share and bore others with x lol x OH! .. and the Humerus/funny bone jokes ..are NOT funny when it is you!!
CARRYING around what feels like a concrete block ...ie. the plaster-of-paris back-slab ...is EXHAUSTING .. so rest and keep it elevated x
Mind you .. when cutting cabbage for coleslaw the weight of the dammed thing on the knife makes it go through like butter and heat xx..
I had to get a bigger pot as it turned out to be easier than I thought !!
YOUR FAMILY will worry and tell you what you CANNOT DO .... SO wait until they go home to discover what you CAN do xx ... what they don't know wont hurt them xx
This morning this beautiful flower arrangement arrived ..
it was courtesy of some of the Australian family members xx THESE are the things that cheer you/me up xx
Have a wonderful Christmas x
