Battered; not fried.

I’ve always been under the impression that the colours representing Valentine’s Day are red and white, but it appears that I was sadly mistaken and they are actually black, blue, purple and a ghastly yellow hue.


It was off to work as usual on the morning of the 14th after a wonderful weekend with my Giant Rat; and in the midst of repacking and resealing boxes in preparation for our move the following week I decided to traipse down to the supermarket to get sugar for Big Sweetie’s coffee as he’s nowhere near as sweet as I am Wink


So there I was, innocently walking down the stairs minding my own business when all of a sardine three hoodlums came screaming up the stairs being chased by building security for having snatched someone’s bag. Needless to say, I was in the proverbial wrong place at the wrong time, and ended up being swept off my feet landing flat on my back up the stairs and knocking my noggin for good measure.


After being assisted by security and Big Sweetie being called, I made my way back to the office where I promptly fainted and then made an urgent trunk call into the great white telephone. Being dizzy and not quite there, Big Sweetie rushed me off to my GP who confirmed that while I was lucky enough not to have broken anything or cracked my noggin, I had a mild concussion and promptly booked me off work.


I spent the rest of the day and the next at home, lying on my stomach and being unable to sit down properly for the severe bruising, but returned to work on the Wednesday stressing about our move as I was co-ordinating the move of my particular division of 70-odd staff scheduled for the 21st Feb.


So there you have it. I think it may be an indication that I’m a hard nut to crack!Β  Or it simply means that I do need my head read after all. Personally I think it’s the latter, but if you don’t tell anyone, I won’t either Smile


As I said to Granny47 yesterday I’m ecstatic that we’re finally out of The Wheel and the whole Point Road area. The week prior to my little incident saw one of the tenants being held up at gun point in the basement parking, and the week prior to that saw a Chinese chap being stabbed to death just outside the block. These were the types of things I don’t mention to my Marmee or my Giant Rat as they both stressed daily with us being in the area. I’m afraid I told my Marmee a half-truth to explain my being booked off work and my back being black and blue by simply saying I had taken a tumble on the stairs. So T, if you read this and speak to my GR, silence is golden. Please. While he would have rushed down, there really was nothing he could do but let me cry on his shoulder, and as comforting as it would have been to be cossetted, it would simply prolong his time away from home. I’m a big girl. I think.


And with that, I must love and leave you lot for now to get ready to take my Marmee shopping. As much as I really don’t feel like going near a mall and crowds of people, a promise must be kept.

    • It was seriously uncool, but had to laugh at my GP for asking if I was sure I wasn’t into bondage when checking out the bruises along my back! Cheeky cow!
