Pretty in purple

Good Evening

Thanks for all the lovely comments including the cheeky ones on my last post :)

I promise never to can-can again. I will be honest there hadn't even been much booze involved and there won't be any for a long while now.

I was back at the hospital first thing for a checkup and plaster change. I managed to have the nurses laughing when I had to confess how I'd done this - apparently I shall now be top of their silly ways to injure yourself list!

Anyhow a nice new lighter cast has been fitted and it will be on until 24th October with a few modifications booked in too - roll on 2 weeks time when I get a thingy fitted so I can finally put my foot down and try to walk again. I opted for purple - it matches the shoe I'm wearing at the moment and the boot I'll wear if the weather goes colder.


Apart from that and a few visits that's all I've achieved today. MrVV & the boys are getting to grips with domestic stuff and are doing great jobs as nursemaids.

Tomorrow I hope to get some crochet done and I need to finish a birthday pressie for a S&B group friend.

Off to see what lovely things everyone has done this weekend.

BTW - Liz, I won't be at the Greenpeace Fair this weekend and Claire, I won't make Henham Steam Rally either - gutted on both accounts :(

Oh dear! Not good, but on the bright side that is a rather fabulous colour of cast. Almost tempted to break a bone so I can be a copy cat ;) x

Oh No! I really had no idea that the can can is so dangerous! Hope you are back on your feet soon, and no more vigours dancing for you! lol.

Still its good for the boys to help out and look after mum for a bit!

Take care

Well if you are going to injure yourself while having fun and have to wear a plaster cast as punishment, the best possible colour to have is purple. It makes a statement don't you think?! :) You poor love, I hope you heal well and life doesn't get to tiresome for you. Take care,

That's a fabulous colour, very "on-trend" for the autumn. What a shame you're missing all these lovely things but at least you can get some projects done and catch up on daytime telly (not sure of that's such a good thing!). x

Great colour choice! It'll do the menfolk good to improve their domestic skills - make the most of it.

Gem said...

Miss Magpie said...
