Another Big Bump...


Photo credit:Bump Head
Poor J, he took today off as his knee hurts (not sure how, he thinks a combination of driving over the w/e and being 41!).

Being a plumber, er, sorry...Heating Engineer he spends a lot of time on his knees. Just thought I'd qualify that in case you were thinking a sore knee is a flimsy excuse for a day off work.

He's very industrious is my J.

Anyway, this morning I was getting ready for my day as 'corporate chick' working on-site at a big software client's HQ in London. Before I left, I made my beloved a cup of tea as a parting Florence Nightingale gesture.

I brought it in to him in bed. As he sat up, he trapped the curtain behind his back (our window is directly behind our bed). He gave the curtain a little tug to free it, and the whole curtain pole plus big-thick-wood-thing-with-nails that the pole was attached to came crashing down on his head!

Horrible!

Though as soon as I knew he was OK (blood, big bump but nothing major) I must confess I did chuckle. What a way to wake up.

Rented houses hey...

And I thought 'NOW she is pregnant again'. How can I fall for the same headline twice? I am just too naive... Hope yours hubby gets better soon.

Bumps all round then. I bumped my head as a jumped out of bed the other week after being woken up at 3am by a police helecopter buzz my garden. Half asleep I jumped up and smashed my noggin on the shelf above my bed. Swore at the chopper and passed out. The only reason I knew it wasn't a dream was the fact that I had a nice graze and lump when I woke to match my splitting head ache :)
