Two weeks on

It's two weeks today since I broke my wrist - and amazingly, thanks to the wonders of medical science, I am just about typing with two hands!  I've had the most impeccable, prompt attention from the NHS, including an operation to put a plate in my wrist to realign everything!  I'm black and blue from the left elbow down, swollen, no plaster cast, very tentative, but getting there!  Hooray!

We won't be venturing out today - we've just had our first snow shower of the winter!  Slushy stuff but nevertheless, the garden is looking a little pale!  It will be very muddy and slippy underfoot, so I'm staying put!  Tilly is not impressed, but stalwart little companion that she is, she's happy just to lie under my feet, to keep them warm!

  1. So glad that you are able to type with two hands, but nevertheless it sounds pretty grim. Hope the weather improves for a walk. We are basking in sunshine Down Under. Love to all x

    1. Yes, not really doing much with both hands just now though! Still bashing away with one. Orthopaedic clinic tomorrow when I hope the will tell me what I can and what I shouldn't be doing at this stage! It took me about 45 minutes yesterday to peel and cut up an option, a small bulb of fennel and an apple - for some stuffing for our chicken supper! Laborious to say the least - but I got there! x

    2. Goodness that sounds like hard work. Where is Mr Gaucho when you need him?
      I do hope things become easier. Sit back and let everyone else organise Christmas!!! xx

    3. Sitting back is not my forte! x

  2. Today's forecast is for more snow at your end of the country, unfortunately, so stay safe and warm while you can. Great to hear that your wrist is on the mend and no plaster cast, though.
    Here we have gales and sideways rain - the usual for this time of year, so to avoid falling branches, my dog and I are heading for a bracing walk on the beach - Brrrrrr!
    Followed by a cappuccino for me and a chewstick for him at the Beach cafe, in front of the log-burner.

    1. That sounds like a great idea! Tilly is gagging for a decent walk - I haven't been out much in the last few days. When you go to the beach keep clear of the rocks!!!! Is the beach cafe one of the Venus string? They are great - in lovely positions!

    2. I haven't heard of Venus cafes; this is a family run independent cafe, right on the beach with fantastic views and two log-burners to warm customers who sit, under cover and with glass walls at the outside tables. Coffee is good, too!

    3. That cafe sounds like the biz! Venus cafes are along the south Devon coast - and maybe elsewhere, but always well placed. We've had lovely fine day here - but very cold. Winter is here! A
