Grumpy takes a fall

Hi there. I've only got a few minutes as I'm in the middle of my weekly cleaning and I have to get it done early 'cause I have to go fix someone's gas heater.

Thursday, after getteing home from work, I did a couple of things outside in the back yard. When I came through the sliding doors between the Pagola and the living room I must have tripped over the blasted door rail.

A trip to the hospital by ambulance and three stitches in the scalp was the result. It was just as well the Michael came home on time from work that day and found me on the floor.

Didn't stop me doing 2 shifts at the hospital the following day, and I was able to show everyone my war injury (well... not really a war injure, just the results of bloody stupidity).

I'm surprised that I haven't had any ill effects from it all. I only have a little soreness where the stitches are.


  1. Hello Terry,
    My goodness me you poor thing. Just shows how accidents can happen so quickly.
    Glad you are alrigh though and hope your wound heals fast.
    Take care,

  2. Great to see you back.

    When I was young I'd hear about 'old' people and their 'falls'. Always breaking their 'goddam hip'.
    Well, when I get old, I'm going to be real careful and NOT fall. LOL One's reflex' to stop oneselves falling are not so sharp anymore are they? I have been known to trip over nothing.

  3. Hi, you will have to look after yourself.
    I changed my bigpond plan so I could have more useage to visit blogspot and Flickr.

  4. afternoon, I did delete the blog here. i did not use and so I deleted it. Now I have no pond blog, they say my account is inactive, and so I am here. Too expensive for me though.
    I am glad that someone found you. how long were you out for? We do not have ambo bills here in qld. Each power box pays a levi. the marina and carabvan parks went berko. They have multiple boxes and say it is unfair. We have none so it works out.
    Drat. the pump just came on. We were in the mud repairng leaks for hours today and still the pumps are on.

  5. Thank you all. I am fine, and no after effects (Wow - -- good name for a software app -- Hmmm --- AfterEffects -- Yep like that one)

    Any way mother and baby doing fine.... sheesh what am I talkin' about already... blather blather blather.

    (Oops ---- AfterEffects already taken --- have to think of something else!)

  6. Morning Terry....
    Bad luck about falling and knocking your noggin....The main thing is did it knock some sense
    Just kidding...Hope you start to feel better soon..

  7. Ahh... Good news. The ambulance bill is covered by our HBA cover.

    I don't really know how long I was out for, but I don't think it was long - maybe 5 - 10 minutes.

    Still no ill effects so it looks as though I've nothing to worry about. The stitches come out next thursday or friday.

    Thanks everyone.
