I am not a well chicken. Aside from a sore throat and chesty cough that seems to have lingered for days I am also now sporting a wrist splint on my right hand for a small break in my thumb and a sling on my left arm for a crack in my humerus (and trust me it is anything but!) and also my forearm - all as a result of taking a flying leap over the extendable handle of some young ladies wheeled overnight bag. I landed full weight on my left arm with some additional damage on the right. I was assured by the Samaritan like passers by that it was a Tom-Daleyesque effort....but without the Speedos....😄
The lady in question did not even bother to see how I was - she was far more concerned about getting into her waiting taxi, obviously en route to a pressing and hugely important engagement, than to worry about little old me lying sprawled on the pavement.
Luckily help was on hand and I was soon back on my way home and the inevitable wait at the local hospital.
So I am off work and am both ill and damaged - and feeling rather sorry for myself. Nothing serious but wearing, painful and tedious.
I am not going to bother attempting to paint anything for a few days so will instead concentrate on the rules for the Jutland project and also my plans for something 1815 related.
