The best laid plans…

go up the wop!! Well, hmmmm…. how to start…

Ok, so there I was AT THE GYM… yep, got my big butt back to the gym and had done a circuit, signed up for a 30 day challenge and was all go when… um, I kinda stumbled onto the side of my foot while getting up off a machine and something went snap. I moved on to the next machine, brave and stubborn that I am but by the next machine I knew something was seriously up with my left foot.

After hobbling over to a chair and amidst much concern I figured I’d done some major damage and went home to ice it for a couple of hours (fortunately I drive an automatic so could drive myself home!). Long story short… a doctor and an x-ray later I now have a rather cumbersome moonboot and crutches and strict instructions to stay off it for at least a week, then another 7 weeks on crutches and the boot. In one small stumble I managed to snap a metacarpsle bone in my foot (which bloody well hurt!!) and just a week before Joshies birthday party, 2 weeks before SENZ and only 6 before the retreat! arrghhhh

I’ve borrowed mum’s laptop to stay in contact with the world but can’t get down to scrap and am going mad already! Who said exercise was good for you? I mean gimme a break. Oh, too late…

  1. OH NO!! That is not good, Louise! I hope you’re not in too much pain … but 7 weeks on crutches is something you could do without. Let me know if I can help out in anyway, okay??


  2. Oh, no, Louise, that is terrible! Hope you are up and about soon and able to get to your scrapping area – most important! Must be a bummer to be resting but not able to scrap. Hope you are feeling a bit better by SENZ – what bad timing.

    The timing just sucks with so much on and coming up but then its not something you would want at any time really. Hope it doesn’t hold you back too much. All the best.


  4. That totally sucks poor you. Hope you can find something positive to come out of it.
