KNACKERED KNEE


I woke up Sunday morning having had a marvellous nights sleep (with an extra hour as the clocks went back) .Sprang nekkid from beneath my delicately fragranced duvet , to greet the dawn and promptly fell flat on my face, in gut wrenching agony as my frigging knee is banjaxed AGAIN.
Altho Saturday night was Rubber Duck Cabaret Nite at Cafe C , I spent a fairly sedate evening in the kitchen , cooking and washing up , I didn't get drunk , I didn't indulge in frenzied dancing on tables and general carousing with Mr C and James , I closed down the kitchen , cleaned up and sneaked off home about half past 11 and had myself a reasonably early night . I have no idea what I did to my knee.
I spent Sunday hobbling about at home , making wincing noises like Sir Elt on his wedding night (Just thought I would infect you minds with that image so you can share in my pain.....there was probably also pillow biting!!!) and have spent the day hobbling around at work , being driven mad by stupid people asking
" Are you limping????"
I always reply
"NO!" as I blatantly drag my useless leg behind me on route for the coffee machine.
Every single one of them , looked slightly confused , and said said "Oh!" .
I often wonder how some of these people make it through the day

Ouch! I hope you are putting ice on it and taking some kind of anti-inflammatory medication. Good that you are using a brace.

Telling you to stay off your feet would be useless, I am sure, as Mr. C would then just rant and rave at you for being overly lazy.

Thanks Ponita ,As I am a bit hyper active , staying off my feet is def not an option , its amazing how fast I can hobble when the need arises

It's the springing around nekkid that's making my eyes water.

" Are you still limping????"

So you missed your opportunity on Saturday night to wheel yourself in a wheelchair, pretending to be Bette Davis?

That's appalling.

Anyway... I'll resist the urge to laugh at your pain and misfortune. Although I will pause long enough to call you a 'clumsy and probably arthritic cunt'.

Where is Frobisher , should we be ringing round the local police stations to see if they have him in the holding cells AGAIN . Have you checked the Cafe C freezers to make sure he hasn't toppled into one , you know what he gets like in the autumn , hibernating like an old tortoise

I was far too busy cutting a heroic dash in the kitchen , my mediteranean chicken was a masterpeice

I shall resist the urge to kick you in the ass with my remaining good leg then :-)

Get well soon, Beast!

Those Cafe C fella(tor)s ought to be carrying you around on a litter instead of making you stand and wash dishes!

Try some RICE--no, not the side dish, although, you could have some while doing the RICE.

Rest your knee (and yourself) to allow your injury to heal.
Ice your injury (using a bag of ice or frozen veggies wrapped in a towel). Put it on your knee for 10 to 15 minutes, then take it off for 20. Do it at least 3 times.
Compress your knee by wrapping an Ace bandage around it. Keeps the swelling and pain down.
Elevate the knee, preferably higher than your heart, to keep the swelling and pain down and promote healing. Use a pillow or two.

Get some sleep, eat well, and take care of that knee! Hopefully, they'll be a smiley face on that knee by the end of the week.

P.S. The floors look very nice.

Eros: The floors may look nice but that's only because you can't see the horrid fireside rug nearby.

Mr E , Thanks you for your good wishes and advice . I have to add Cafe C is blameless in this case as my knee was fine on Saturday evening , it all went horribly wrong over night , Mr C must have found that Beast voodoo doll again . It has almost healed entirely now and I found putting the weight on the heel rather than the ball of the foot while limping made all the difference (As well as the ice and resting and stuff)
