Hi ladies, well i was having a very productive day this saturday pricing & packaging (YES STILL!!~) my items for the Shabby Vintage Junk extravaganza..

the sun was shining its lovely magical glow in my room where I am packaging all goodies which added to my enthusiasm to get the job done!!...
( they say the weather is to become quite cold wintery this coming week)..

when low & behold i was walking down the stairs and reading what i had written on a card describing some plates..

AND VOILA~~ not looking where walking, my shoe slipped on the edge of the stair and i fell down a beauty twisting my right ankle/foot...
(jee wiz, my foot kind of looks like a pig's trotter??)~~

Big Lump appeared immediately so ice was applied~~

I don't think i will be fitting into my size 7 shoe in the morning??~~~~

I have only ever done this once before at tennis...& this was equally as painful..

SOO I have to say I am feeling a tad sorry for myself..

& I was on such a roll getting things organised...

Nevertheless I am hobbling up & down the stairs still getting goodies priced & organised..

as they say.."the show has to go on.."..???

Yeah..I know that sounds a tad lame...But kinda true..~

xx andrea

Oh No Andrea!!...and that is exactly what happened to me, I sprained my ankle badly the first time, then every little slight time I do it again, it flares up like yours...apparanetly something to do with the Ligaments...or our age?? not sure which...but I hear you loud and clear
Look after it...which I didn't do properly to mine and am still suffering 6 months later

Oh Ms Andrea...ouchy! Try to stay off it a day of rest now may get it better quicker...You would'nt need the ice here where I live ....It is freezing!

Lyndel said...

OK we NEED you fit and well for the Extravaganza, so PLEASE complete rest tomorrow... feet or at least foot up, elevated, read a book or knit or crochet something, or sew some tags or SOMETHING but REST, and Elevation..... and get well soon.

You poor thing, get better soon dear friend. What bad timing!! I'm sure you will be fine by the fair though, just bring a chair so you dont have to stand all the time. I'm just about ready for the fair now. Just need to finish tagging and I'm done!

OMG Andrea, I hope it is not too serious. What a lump - ouch.

Moving right a long, all of your goodies for the fair are amazing.

That looks nasty Andrea. I'm a bit late getting around blogland this week so hope the swelling is all gone now. Wishing you all the best for the extravaganza.
