Humpty Dumpty fell off a wall...

I fell off a ladder painting around the edge of my 12 ft high ceiling. It was a long way to the ground.

I am so lucky - to be alive - not to be paralysed - to have only 2 broken ribs in my back and substantial bruising...

but oh my gosh the pain is like nothing else with a good 5 to 6 weeks of healing to look forward to!

Take Care

Oh my, not good. I do hope it turns out to be quicker that that. Have you rubbed arnica all over your bumps? At least now you will be safe while you get better.

Oh and I do love your new handbag. I have cushions the same but in the blue. Love it!
