Calamity Kate strikes again
I walked into it in the parish office and retreated wounded 10 seconds later.
(Do you remember my saying I hated plastic?)
The haematoma collection for 2012 is now complete (I hope).
This one was the size of a grapefruit in about five minutes and the swelling has only just begun to go down. Luckily the skin was not broken so it is unlikely there will be any serious infection. It is just a question of waiting for the mass to disperse and spread out nice and flat (and black)!
When I was young and even when I was not so young, I had quite nice legs - though I say it myself - these days, they are veiny, skinny with thick ankles, and now even prettier, black and lumpy. Oh the joys of the ageing process are endless.
Pretty soon, the only possible garb will be a full length cloak with a hood - and probably a mask too.
Would you describe me a leg-end in my own life-time?
