...... At least you now have a diagnosis, a boot and....a zimmer frame!  ...

 Hadn't planned on getting one just yet ........

Forest edge ... best of luck with the driving ... stick at it!  My daughter  Wonky Womble started to learn when she was 17 but she had M.E. and was very anxious and gave up.  Then last year when she was 40 she took it up again,  and despite still being a bit anxious she passed her test   and we were just saying earlier today that it's changed her life, giving her so many more options re work and life choices.  She now has the job of her dreams working as a gardener on a beautiful countryside estate by a river, with bluebell woods, orangery, walled gardens, water gardens etc and is as happy as Larry.  

So, go for it!!!  We're all behind you

Thanks for all the kind wishes folks ... genuinely touched 

It seems I've torn ligaments in my knee, badly sprained my ankle and snapped my 5th metatarsal ... didn't David Beckham do that?   I'm in a plastic boot until Tuesday when I go to get plastered 

OH  will just open up and close down at the shop for the next couple of days as I'm pretty immobile at the moment ... I can't use crutches 'cos of my dodgy shoulder so they've given me a ZIMMER FRAME!!!!!!!!!   

There's such a lot to do in the garden, with things to plant out etc ....... it's going to be a steep learning curve for OH.

Volunteers can form an orderly queue   ...................... whaddayamean you've got enough to do in your own gardens

Just had a thought ...... could we employ Pdoc as our Gardening Emergency Doc?!  What with LilyP, me, Hosta and the other afflicted ones, we could probably keep him busy

Hello folks - in and out of A&E in 2 hours ...  the NHS is wonderful :D

I have damaged ligaments/sprained my knee, a badly sprained ankle................... and a broken 5th metatarsal .   'Snapped right through,' is what the doctor said!!!

My foot is in a black boot thing and I have a ................. ZIMMER FRAME!!! because due to my shoulder problem I can't have crutches.   The OT was so relieved when I said I'd be happy with a zimmer ... I said I don't care as long as I can get to the loo.

OH is taking some of today off, and probably just going in to cash up at the end of the day, and tomorrow he'll open up and close down but be with me for the rest of the time. He then isn't due back to work until next Thursday ........ I have an appointment at the Fracture Clinic for Tuesday morning when the swelling should have gone down enough to be plastered.

I'm so glad I waxed my legs and gave myself a pedicure the other day :oops:

Clematis ID please

I found that too much sun made the petals go brown ........ I think it' s better in the shade  ... I moved my first one around a couple of times until I found the right spot for it, which was growing through a climbing rose in a north-west facing bed ... it took a year to recover from the move, and then absolutely took off
