I'm wearing this contraption for a couple of days. It looks like a robot. I wish I could tell you I had a skiing mishap, but no, nothing so glamorous. A silly accident, a dislocated toe and bruising. On a Sunday. So I went into survival mode, eased the toe back in place and wrapped it in place with a piece of silk, the first thing I could lay my hands on. A couple of Aspirin later, I called my medical journalist friends, who approved of what I'd done and brought over this "air cast" to help me move around while keeping the foot immobile. I figured that between the three of us: all three medical writers, his father a doctor, my mother a nurse-midwife, we should have the knowledge by osmosis if nothing else! I knew that keeping the foot immobile was crucial and if if got worse the next day, I would call my doctors.
Today there's no swelling, no pain to speak of, but some colourful bruising. There's a message here, however. I need to continue clearing my space and I need to slow down a little. I'm grateful it was nothing worse.
So I sat back and made something. This flower is inspired by Julie Arkell, and this kind of craft is something the British do best. Cheers!
