No Plans …..

There are days, when things don’t go according to plan.

Ask me! I had a long ‘things to do’ list planned for this weekend, and many chores scheduled for Friday; and how did I spend it? In bed, with a swollen and bandaged left foot and ice packs for company.

I had just left home on Friday, and stood on the pavement to hail a taxi. A taxi soon arrived and parked in front of me.

I opened the door and bam! my left foot twisted and I fell on the road, unable to hoist myself up, as excruciating pain shot through my left ankle.

The taxi driver waited, thinking I was picking up something from the ground. I feebly waved through the window. He must have sensed something, so he came around to check.

Another kind gentleman also helped in loading me into the taxi, and off I went to the nearest hospital, with an ankle that looked blue and swollen.

X-Ray done. No fracture thankfully. Nasty sprain. Crutches and lots of attention.

I am enjoying this sudden time out. As I rest my feet, the afternoon sun casts a warm glow in the room.

I can hear some drilling in one of the flats in the building, the chirping of birds, the cotton puff clouds moving across a blue sky. I enjoy this time away, with my thoughts for company…

I am not thinking about my long list of things to do….everything can wait.

    Not a great way to take time off but I guess you can utilize it wisely.
    Hope you recover soon and enjoy the same things as you are doing now.

  11. Yikes, so sorry to hear of your accident. Keep that foot elevated and iced-it’ll make all the difference in the healing process. I know because I did something similar a few years ago (sadly, mine resulting in a very bad break). Healing thoughts coming your way. ❤

  12. I hope you heal quickly! I did the exact same thing last December. It took me about 6 weeks to heal.
