Parent's Night with a Difference
Random Dandelion Head Picture
Well Laura, Karen and Emma are all off out to the pictures tonight to go and see the new Twilight Movie. I kind of wish I was going with them but it's nice to see them all go out and having fun together.
My poor Karen has been struggling with a headache all week so I'm hoping she is ok in the cinema!
Well, wait till I tell you what happened to me last night. My face is going red just thinking about it!!! Ah the anticipation, I bet you can't wait to find out what it was now ha ha.
It was Emma's parents night at school last night and
Danny wouldn't be home in time from work to go to it so it was just me and Emma. We drove to the school in plenty of time and were wandering around the side of the school where it was extremely dark. There are a couple of steps there and of course I didn't see them - remember it was extremely dark. Well I tripped on the first step and tried to save myself and then I tripped on the 2nd step and went flying through the air. You know that sinking feeling you get when you know you are going down in a big way and why is it when you do it goes in slow motion?
Anyway I put my hands out to save myself so they hit the ground first, then my knees, my shoulder and then my cheek. It was raining and miserable and I also managed to wash my face in a puddle. I lay on the ground for a minute trying to work out what exactly had just happened. Emma turned around on hearing the thudding noise to see me lying prostrate on the ground. She started saying "mum get up" - she was worried somebody might see me!!
Let me just assure you I was FINE, just had sore knees and hands - and was really wet. Once Emma found out I was ok she was doubled up laughing - all night!!!
Well, I laughed a bit as well, it must have looked awfy funny.
I had to sit through 3 teachers meetings and try and pretend everything was ok all the while thinking 'I wish I could check my knee is ok'. Anyway I survived it all and when I got home I discovered I'd skint my knee and had a nice big bruise on each of my palms. My cheek is fine though so that is something.
It is a long time since I had a good fall and hopefully that will be my last. I don't wish to do it again any time soon.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!
