And I'd only had them a month !!

It only took a second for me to do this to the new spectacles. Skewhiff the frames, remove the paint from the left hand edge (that's embedded just under my eye) and thoroughly scratch the fancy and expensive German lenses.
 I took a tumble last night while on my daily walk.   Despite falling elegantly, I destroyed my new glasses, broke a tooth and badly grazed my face, both knees and both hands.   Today has been spent at the doctors and at X-ray and no stitching, or walking for that matter, for a while. It's even hard to talk and see through the swelling.   My fifth metacarpal on the right hand didn't stand up to the fall too well.   So more reading than stitching methinks.
Back soon!

  4. That`s not good. Plenty of pain tablets too. Hope it`s not too long before you are stitching again.

  5. Oh, no, how unfortunate. Will you be off work, unable to drive and carry on other daily activities? No stitching, that must be hard, poor you.
    Wishing you a speedy recovery.

  6. I am ever so sorry to hear about your fall and the resulting 'wounds'. I blame some of the problems I have with my right hand on a full body fall I took two years ago that jammed my hand awkwardly under my body. Luckily with also just a scrape on my face, I was ok. I joke I have slipitis and with the freezing rain and resultant ice lately, I have been walking like a little old woman. Anyway, hope you heal fast.
    On another note. my Hubby who is from England originally did his early schooling at Hampton Court Palace grammar school.

  12. Oh no Margaret, those falls are so nasty. You must have fallen quite hard. Can you claim insurance on your glasses I wonder?
