Out Of Action
I just wanted to let you know that I haven't been gobbled up in cyber space this week but have had an annoying injury. I have a broken finger caused by Dylan the pony pulling away from me while I was lunging him (exercising him from the ground on a long rein).
It swelled up quite alarmingly so I went to the doctor the next day. I had to have an x-ray & the break is at an angle across the middle bone of the ring finger on my right hand & of course I am right handed. They said that it's a very common injury caused by a sudden tug - often found in horse riders & dog owners!
So, it is now in a splint & I have to keep my hand elevated in a sling & not do much at all.
The biggest pain is that I'm not supposed to drive & that's a huge problem as I have to take The Boy to school & can't do any "ordinary" stuff for 6 weeks - who is going to clean the house, do the shopping, cooking, packing & posting of sales & feed & tend to the chickens, dogs, cats & pony? Mr C will do what he can but he's out at work all day & The Boy at school.
I am quite ambidextrous but lots of things you need two hands for.
So, I will be reading your blogs but probably not leaving comments or posting here for a while - not because I don't love you all but because I'm not supposed to be using my right hand!
