viva la break fall

hi all

I was offline for the weekend so I have a little catching up, hopefully I will get to your blogs soon!!

I stayed at the backpackers Friday and Saturday night and on Saturday night was going back to the house I was saying in and tripped down some brick steps, I remember thinking 'oh shit' (actually I said this out loud as someone heard me) and thinking that I didn't want to hurt my head or back and even though it has been 18 months since I have done kung fu with any regularity (don't ask) the foward break popped into my head so I managed to land on the brick pathway unscathed (except for my shins which landed on the steps and are badly bruised and scratched - I look like a 13 yo who has cut her legs shaving them -  maybe one has to go to boarding school to appreciate what a mess some girls make of this) anyhu the owner heard and administered first aid and red wine - red wine always ALWAYS works.   I am back at my friend K's though as it has been really enjoyable staying with her.

I got offered that job as a hut warden at Nelson Lakes and had to turn it down so I can be a mum to K, given that is why I returned from Korea.  Never mind they are keen for me to apply next year!!

I feel like a bloke showing off his scars, but I do think my knee bruise is impressive - I can see a face in it, can you? (it is a few days old so yellowing now - thank christ  )

It's amazing how much we remember of things we thought forgotten, when we are in desperate need to remember them, lucky that you was quick thinking.

shame about the job but understandable, and it's a big compliment that they want you to consider it again next year. That's great news

That was seriously quick thinking! I've crashed a few times this year already. Last week I fell off...a step stool...and hurt myself. Explain this kung fu move you used. If I could just learn one thing it would be this..... If you don't mind my asking...what is K's school status? Is she out of high school? Going on to college? She seems so grown up. But you'll still be her mom for the rest of her life

Glad you didn't get hurt worse, bricks aren't very forgiving! Hahah first aid & red wine, I like that combo.

Oh I hope you're not in any pain and those cuts will heal quickly. I always hate it when those darn stairs just come out from under our feet. Good reflexes! Hopefully the next job offer will be one that you can accept :)

Yikes, that looks bad! Hopefully it will heal soon. I know what you mean about shaving...I have very sensitive skin and I used to do a real number on myself. Mailing a very hopeful job prospect today : ) Wish me the best.

Wow, that looks really bad! Oh you poor thing...... If I was there I could recommend applying some special Chinese homebrew 'Teet Dah Jow' (Metal Hit Medicine) to your leg which can help remove the bruising much quicker and speed up the healing process. Mixed with special herbs and brandy its something I used a lot when I was younger..it was really superb! Luckily you can now get it in bottled form > http://www.asiachi.com/noname5.html :) Anyways hope you get better!
