today...

Has been an interesting one. It started incredibly early. I got home from the midnight crop around 1am, then couldn't drop off to sleep until 4am! I knew this would be bad news. I was woken up at 7am to get ready to take Seth to his first rugby league match. He did so fantastically and my chest was swelled with pride. He made a few good breaks, tackled a couple of kids and had fun. What more could a parent ask for? We came home, had lunch and a rest, then I decided to go visit Sandra at Spotlight. All was going well until I decided I need a purple rhinestone butterfly. To get said butterfly, I had to climb onto the shop fitting and reach high above my arms reach. I got the butterfly, stepped down on top of Eme's doll's pram, which she had strategically wheeled under my foot, and went flying backwards, the butterfly took flight too. I have no idea what happened, it was all so fast. I broke Eme's pram, hit my head and arm on the shelving behind me, knicked my foot on another shelf and was in general pain. My arm swelled up instantly and briefly I thought I'd broken it. The Spotlight manager called an ambulance and I called Andrew to come and get me. After being checked over, I was bandaged up and sent home with instructions to see a doctor tomorrow if I was still in pain. I am still in pain, so looks like I'm in for a fun night. My arm is killing me...as is my ankle, other wrist, head, shoulder, back...you name it. Man, I felt so stupid!! Man, I'm so annoyed that Spotlight are displaying product so dangerously high! Man, I don't want to see the photos Sandra took of me being patched up! lol.

Take care...I know I will be in future! Lis.

ps. Thank you so much everyone who's sent me sweet birthday wishes! I had a fabulous celebration this year and you all made it that much more special. mwah!!

Oh my god, Lisa! I can't believe that happened. You poor thing. I was only just on the phone to you before you left for Spotlight...who would've thought you'd have such an eventful afternoon. {{hugs}}

Hope you will be feeling better soon. everything they put up is to high, not just them. I use thongs at home to get things.
Don't do much for a few days,so you can heal. Love Aunty Ros
