What a day!

This is a picture of the inside of my left knee! "How did she ever manage to do that?" you ask yourself; well let me tell you! We were away for the past four days so when I got up this morning there was a list a mile long of things to do! Sean was at work today so number one was to get the lawn mowed before our green recycling truck arrived for pick up. I did the usual grid pattern over the lawn to look for dog surprises and kids toys before I started. All was clear so off I went. What I didn't notice was that in the time after I checked the back yard and moved to check the front, our puppy, Rooney, had carried a knobby red bone onto the back grass. He left it in the seven day growth grass. I can hear you moaning now! Anyway, I didn't see it in the lawn and the lawnmower kicked it up at me as I went over it. My knee was the initial hit and then as I doubled over in pain it rebounded and hit me in the stomach! It knocked the wind completely out of me. My two and four year old boys watched from the patio in horror! (thank goodness we have a rule; no one on the lawn while mommy and daddy are mowing) This is what the bruise looks like after only 10 hours; I can't wait to see it tomorrow morning! I think this will be my excuse to sit quietly in my scrapbooking room tonight:)

Ouch! I hope you've recovered now! I also have a gory picture of an accident I had while on a canal boat. However, I don't expect sympathy as I was on a canal boat in England!
