I was wondering if I’d find the time to write my first blog in the busy run up to Christmas, being mummy, working on several projects, crafting, oh yes and moving house in a week (nearly forgot about that).
It turns out I have a bit more time than I’d imagined. No I’m not a super mum, master organiser… I wish! I’m finding the time to write this first blog from the comfort of my sick bed after a very large and very heavy box of books fell out of the attic and came crashing down onto my head. Several days of aches, pains and concussion later, what is the moral of this story? Never, ever store a heavy box in a high place! Or trust the strong arms of your husband to hold said box above your head (he feels very, very guilty indeed). If only there had been a video camera filming us we’d surely be appearing on you’ve been framed. (Now I am even more convinced the vast majority of those videos are fakes, you just wouldn’t be videoing someone doing DIY or emptying the attic now would you?) I’m sure it looked totally hilarious and I did spend the first 20 minutes laughing about it (very likely the shock!) until I realised I’d actually hurt myself.
On returning from the hospital I went round to seek much needed sympathy from my darling mother, there really is nothing like a cuddle from your mummy to make everything feel better. Quite amusingly she forgot (hey I’m supposed to be the one with amnesia) I had concussion and decided test my catching reflexes by throwing ( I settle on throwing as I’m convinced she “lobbed” it and she is adamant she “tossed” it) a hard, multicoloured ball at me. Unsurprisingly my reflexes were not all that and I only noticed it coming when it whacked me in the mouth. Talk of adding insult to injury. A second person left feeling very guilty, I seem to be good at this!
My first blog post has not really been what I’d envisaged. I was imagining perhaps a cute tale about my little girl or sharing one of my crafts with you. However another thing I love to do is make people smile (even if it is at my own expense). Welcome to my wonderful, unpredictable and always somewhat entertaining world! Classic You’ve Been Framed
