Not long after Friday's post, I was fooling around in the kitchen with the girls [I know - I am 40 - too old to be mucking about] and I slipped and fell - whoops! - with a heck of a bang onto the floor. My back and head got quite a jarring and I have a spectacular bruise in my armpit where I caught it on the edge of the worktop as I fell. Consequently yesterday I spent much of the day on the sofa, reading, knitting and watching tv or DVDs with the girls. Today I feel slightly less fragile, but I didn't go to chapel this morning.
This afternoon we had a load of firewood delivered from a friend's son who has set himself up as a woodman - he has won a junior lumberjacking award in Belarus [or somewhere foreign!] and knows what he is doing. I am full of admiration for him as he is a successful product of home education, and I think he has grown up into a lovely young man - I am sure his mum is very proud. The wood he brought us is really good, and so we have ordered another load to be delivered in a week or two, whilst he still has seasoned wood in stock.
After that, the FH's cousin and his family arrived for a visit. We had a good catch up with them, and the lady of the family spent some time helping the FH with his Christmas puzzle.
Tonight I have watched the last ever Wild At Heart on ITV, and been saddened by the end, but also uplifted by the overall storylines, so I was glad I watched it! Now I am off to have a hot bath and see if it helps my back a little!
