Ouch!

Yesterday, I decided that since we were getting somewhat straight again, I would install the TV support in our bedroom, I had always said a TV was for the lounge, and only the lounge, but age is catching up with me, and staring at a tablet whilst lying in bed was not doing me any good.

I was up the step ladder drilling one minute, the next I was flying through the air.


I still don't know what was the cause, whether I moved, and the shift in weight caused the leg to buckle, or whether the leg buckled as it fell over with me, and I will never know.

Fortunately I was able to put into practice  a technique I was taught as a youngster jumping out of moving vehicles, and curled my body as I fell, which I think protected my neck, and head as I landed on the concrete tiled floor.  I haven't escaped unscathed, but it could certainly have been a lot worse.

As for the stepladder, it will be cut up and sent for recycling!

As for today, I am just taking it easy, and despite it being a National Holiday, Jaime and his Crew are here working, whether it's all day, ore just until lunch, we have yet to ascertain.
