Head Over Heels (literally).

Yep, I'm now the proud possessor of a very swollen and painful ankle. In my rush for the bus this morning I fell spectacularly. Fortunately there are still some helpful and kind people about and four of them came to my rescue. I was very shaken but could still put weight on my foot so I declined all offers of a seat etc. All I could think was...I must catch the bus, I'm on Jury Service and the judge can fine you if you're late.
Looking back, this wasn't perhaps the best move - as the day went on my ankle got bigger and bigger. Made it back to Thame and managed to buy a support bandage and David came and picked me up. Now resting it.
Tomorrow I won't be wearing heels - I'll be in my red skateboarding shoes whether they're "appropriate" for court or not!
On the trial front we'll be retiring to consider our verdict tomorrow...hopefully it'll be the last day.

I gradually managed to relax over the weekend and even did a little crafting.
I finished the LO I started last Sunday.

This was made using Pink Paislee "Butterfly Garden" papers, stamps, rub-ons, pops and pebbles. The tags were either cut on the Cricut or from IKEA (sent to me by Valerie in Germany - thank you so much, they were perfect for this!). Apart from the one with black ribbon - that's a clothing tag from M&S.
Title is a Dovecraft alpha and the sketch was adapted from the latest issue of Carnets de Scrap.

I also managed to make a birthday card for my step-MIL.
This used the Craftwork Cards Goody Bag from Ally Pally and a Crafty Individuals image.

A quick but effective card.

Whilst I was in court today DS went back to Bristol (he had chance of a lift, saving him the train fare). He went back with a "food parcel" - I'd overshopped as I thought he'd be staying longer. :(

Right, time to get ready for the Champions League match.
Thanks for popping in.
Hugs xx

Poor you! I hope your ankle recovers quickly. Falling over really shakes you up doesn't it?

Hello sweetie - I'm so sorry that you fell - I hope you are thoroughly on the mend - did you manage to get the court case out of the way before the bank holiday weekend or are you still deliberating - fingers crossed it's all over and done with!
