Shed works have resumed – after an interruption and a sobering scare.
Late afternoon, hot day, and I was installing the boards on the ceiling – lots of up and down the ladder. Then I stepped off the ladder before I got to the bottom rung!
Landed awkwardly, and fell on my backside. A few years ago, I could have just shrugged it off, but this time had strained ligaments in my knee and my back was bruised and sore. I finished securing the last panel, and called it quits – inside for a hot shower and a medicinal ale as prescribed by the good Doctor Cooper.
That was a restless night – my knee ached, and my back was prone to muscle spasms. And I lay awake thinking that if it got worse, or didn’t get better, then my idea of life on a rural block was going to change quickly….
In the morning, my back was simply sore, and my knee was very sore. A couple of rest days, and I was mobile again. Mostly better now.
A couple of days later, a friend of mine shared a link to the My MiND blog. Another reminder of just how quickly it all can change…
