Snow and ice, yet I fall foul of the kitchen floor?


March 4, 2018 by welshcyclist

Badly swollen knee to prove it! What a dope I am?

The floor wasn’t wet, but somehow my bare feet just slid from under me and I went down like the veritable sack of spuds. Of course, it was my gammy knee that took the full brunt, so now is three times the size of normal.

Perhaps four times even.

Currently. I’ve got a bag of frozen peas strapped to the knee, and am having great problems trying to bend it.

Naturally, after raining all morning the sun is now blazing down.

This wounded knee incident doesn’t augur well for my return to riding my bike more regularly and gear up for proper commuting again….. Doah!!!

    Rotten luck. I hope the swelling goes down soon.

    Sorry to hear you’ve not had a great start to 2018. Perhaps a new name for the blog is called for. With your luck at the moment the “cyclist” part of the name needs a rethink. I’m sure your regular readers can come up with something suitable.
    I hope things improve soon for you and I, for one, miss hearing about your cycling exploits.

  4. Just dropped by to your blog to see if things have improved for you.
