I shall have to take more water with it..as the saying goes.
I've been feeling a bit more shaky than usual and yesterday afternoon had a fall in the bedroom.
It happened in a sort of slow motion but I finished up on the floor with a chair on top of me and several coathangers that were on the chair.
The trouble is I couldn't get up. Himself cannot help much and I honestly thought we'd have to call the paramedics to get me up. Stuck in a small space between the dressing table and the bed it took ages for me to eventually get to my knees and scrabble up in a most unladylike manner.
So of course today I hurt all over and in muscles I never thought I had. But no serious damage done, thank heaven.
A little tale for you....
Up at the head table in the school cafeteria, one of the nuns had placed a big bowl of fresh juicy apples. Beside the bowl she had placed a note which read:
Take only one. Remember God is watching.
At the other end of the table was a bowl full of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, still warm from the oven.
Beside the bowl lay a little note, scrawled in a child's handwriting which read:
Take all you want. God's watching the apples.
