    Well the title says it all really. I went out on Friday night with a friend and on the way home I tripped on the pavement and had a nasty fall. I have a lovely black eye, grazed shoulder, bruised fingers and a gashed knee. Have had 3 stitches in my eyebrow, and it is quite painful. Sore hand makes it difficult to type too! I felt a right fool in the A&E department as well.

    Its not much better this morning, eye was swollen shut and is badly bruised. I am sitting here with a pack of frozen peas on it, to try to reduce the swelling!

    My knee is really painful to put weight on, but I keep trying to exercise it to keep it flexible.

    What a bloomin state I am in, and I look dreadful!

    My daughter, partner and 9month old granddaughter are still here staying with us, and will probably be for another 3 weeks or so.

    I am due to go to Spain on Weds for 3 days on a mini-cruise with my (same)friend, then coming home and then off to Turkey with hubby on Sunday for 2 weeks, so will apologise in advance for my absence. Hope the eye goes down a bit before we fly off though, as it looks like I've done 10 rounds with Mike Tyson lol x

    Hope everyone is doing well with their weight loss journeys x x x

    Oh Cheryl, you poor thing, sorry to hear about this. falling is so horrible as an adult, kids think nothing of it but it is horrible for us grown ups. Hope you feel much much better soon.
