Was going to keep this blog as purely for writing...

but am feeling sorry for myself.


I've broke my baby toe! Went out with a group of work friends Saturday night, the friends being in their twenties and me in my, er, slightly older all decided to go on a pub crawl.

I dressed in my new harem jeans and Jane Norman black and silver top and I felt the bee's knees. Anyway, girl from the group approaches me in her figure-hugging dress with legs up to her pits, clear sparkling skin and with bum-checks as tight as a drum and boobs that pointed in the right direction, said I was looking really trendy and wished her mum would dress as trendily.

Hmmm I think that's what they call a back handed compliment.

Anyway, they were a bunch of light-weights and I ended up being the only sober one there. Honestly, a coule of Malibu and cokes and they were all over the place. No stamina these days.

Ended up in a club and I, in my sober stupor, fell down a step and landed funny - although I didn't laugh but that didn't stop everybody else - and my poor used-to-be ignored baby toe took the brunt of my weight and it is duly looking like a burnt chipolata. And the worse thing? The only footwear I can bear on my feet are my neon yellow flurry slippers so a quick trip to the shops for a bar of Cadbury is out. The loan penguin bar isn't real chocolate despite what anyone says!

Please leave sympathy for toe below.

  1. I feel for you. Of course, I am a clutz. Used to be every time I had somewhere important to go I would somehow injure myself and get a big bruise to show off.
    Ever walk down steps with no backs, in heels, get a heel caught behind the step and fall flat down the rest of them with your foot caught? Nice bruise across the front of my shins with that one. And I was 20 and wasn't drinking! LOL

  4. Yup, done that Anon that's why I now where flats whenever I can.

    Harem jeans are ordinary jeans but at the ankle they are elasticated -think Genie style.

  5. Poor you, Louise! I'm suffering from (possible) fractured ribs at the moment - just waiting on x-ray results - so I feel your pain. Best wishes for a quick recovery, Clair x

  10. Oh dear, that sounds painful. I'm really clumsy and always falling over or stubbing my toes, but nothing broken so far! (Guess I shouldn't tempt fate by saying that...)

  11. Sorry to hear about your toe, Louise. I feel your pain! That has happened to me on more than one occasion. I remember one time it happened twice in one day to the same toe! The pain lasted for weeks! Take care!
