Today started out very nicely and I took this photo of Basil on the roof spying on another cat. Then I set off for my hair appointment.

Suddenly and for no reason my left ankle just turned right over - ouch! It REALLY hurt! After a few minutes hanging onto a nearby fence I managed to make it to the hair salon, telling myself a bit of a rest and i'd be fine. Unfortunately that wasn't the case.

I just about made it home and called Phil to take me to Minor Injuries in Halton Hospital. We were there almost four hours! I've got a severely sprained ankle and my long unbroken sickness record is at an end! I won't be at work tomorrow and possibly not Friday either.
My ankle!
So, I've got to rest it but the scary thing is apparently it's easy to do again once you've done it. I am going to find it really hard not doing all the stuff I want to do, like aerobics and walking and RDA. I want to be better for our half term break too!

OUCH!!! Oh hon sorry to hear about this, I hope it heals soon and well, I'll send you some Reiki. x

Oh my! I'm sorry about your little incident/accident. I guess we'll just be the gimpy twins. I suggest some kind of elastic ankle brace for future exertions, aerobics, etc...or maybe even just for walking!

Basil looks like he has designs on that other cat.

ouch! ouch! ouch!
You know I feel your pain! Be very good to yourself and take it easy.

Basil looks like he's on a balcony and he and his friend are watching a play.

Ohhhh so sorry to hear the news. I know how much that hurts and can only just cheer you on to recovery.
Its a bummer to not do what you planned so I hope this goes very fast.

Oh no! I'm so sorry this happened to you :( I hope it isn't too painful and that you are back on your feet soon.

BUT.. take advantage of being waited on if you can. :)

Very sorry you hurt your foot, but probably wise that you will lower your "horizons" for a couple of days. Feel better. In any case, your injury provided an opportunity for a great photo.
