Oh bu$$er bu$$er bu$$er!!!
I've had an unstable knee for 20+ years since an injury. It used to sort of 'give way' from time to time but it's not been a problem for a couple of years and I'd sort of forgotten about it. However, I was out in the garden this afternoon when i just turned wrongly and my knee gave way and I fell flat on my face in the middle of the Hesperis matronalis. Not only is that looking a but squashed but my knee aches like heck and I've sprained my ankle and it's very painful.
I lay in the flowers for about 10 minutes until the pain subsided then crawled on my hands and knees into the house and onto the sofa.
I had been moving the sprinkler ... it's a good job I'd switched it off, or I'd have been laying there being watered!!!
OH is home and he's put an ice pack on my ankle and given me some Solpadeine and is getting on with making the supper.
I was going to plant the runner beans this evening ............... bu$$er, bu$$er, bu$$er
