About Me

With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Poor me.

Sorry that I have not blogged for a few days!
What have I been up to?
Well, I have hurt my knee.
I don't know how seriously yet. I have to wait for an MRI.
All I know is it doesn't feel very stable and my Physio is predicting a long haul ahead.
So... hurt knee... put your feet up... do plenty of reading, craft, blogging...
Life goes on and everything just takes a bit longer, so I am getting behind with all the things I have on my "To Do" list!

So, you want to know how I hurt my knee?
Really... do I have to tell you?
OK but don't tell anyone because it's a bit embarrassing.

I thought it would be a good idea to be a volunteer parent  helper at the High School Athletics carnival. Right? Right.

I thought it was a good job I was allocated to do, helping organise kids to throw the Javelin. Right? Right.

I thought it was good how the teacher was explaining to the novice kids how to throw the Javelin. Right? Right.

I thought I would throw the Javelin to show them, seeing as I used to be a pretty good Javelin thrower in my younger years. Right? Maybe.

I thought I would give a second demo with the next group, and maybe this time I would make my Javelin actually stick in the ground. Right? WRONG!!!!!!

I was not trying to be a hero, so I was concentrating on not hurting my shoulder.  What I didn't think about was the huge twist involved when throwing a big stick through the air. The full force of that twist  zoning in on my left knee.

Ouch. Crunch. (think of pulling a chicken leg apart)

Anyway, I will spare you all the details.

I'll keep you posted although they will be pretty boring blog posts. Sorry!
