Accident prone – mainly the right side of my body it seems. What about you?

Accidents – let me see yes I had one this morning, walking around the house bare footed as another hot day in Oz.     Courtesy Google &

My right foot smashes into the bottom of the steps. It was sore granted, I did say a few expletives, then it seemed to feel better, in fact I took minded dog Peta for her walk, I weeded the back yard ferociously and then I started to mow. Mr. S is on a Golf weekend so I thought hmm the sun is out may as well continue. I finished the back then got 1/4 into the front only to have my ‘cafoofer valve’ give way on me  (my terminology for running out of steam) which is VERY unusual for moi.

Now it wasn’t the foot that stopped me , oh noooo it was the fact that silly me (points stern finger at myself) did not consume any water the entire time I was slaving in the garden. So I think a bit of heat stroke got to me. Such a sad and sorry sight I was stretched out on the couch grabbing breath and drinking gallons of water.

Anyway where was I, oh yeah the foot.. so after I had hydrated myself (no people not with wine this time) and had a shower, the foot was aching more than earlier. To the point now dear readers I can’t put weight properly on it. So maybe…possibly I have broken a little toe (the one on the end that you really don’t need anyhow) and have it bandaged. Daughter said “Um Doctor Mum”  reply “No they can’t do anything if it’s broken anyway”(be forever the martyr)…

This led me to this post.

How many accidents have you had?  Are you accident prone? What’s the weirdest accident you have had?

I can recall 3 others, though technically one wasn’t an accident, ok it was I guess.

  • I must have stood on a small screw outside at one stage, but I never felt it. I don’t want to gross anyone out but for months I was completely unaware until one day (for reasons even unknown to me) I looked very hard at the underneath of my foot (not something I’m prone to do a regular basis mind). I dug a little as I noticed something dark…you guessed it after not to be much digging I pulled out this screw, albeit small but the little thing had been nestled in the ball of my foot for some time without me feeling or knowing it was there.
  • The 2nd incident was again involving my foot and my right one – seems I’m accident prone with this side of my body. I was outside and my partner at the time was cutting off planks of wood. Yep barefoot again, I stood on a nail. Off to the doctors this time for a Tetanus injection (which was painless). However I had to step, place, step, place with crutches as the nail even though I had been injected against bodily harm had infected my foot somewhat and it swelled underneath. The mere act of trying to place it on the ground was agonising.
  • The 3rd and last incident was when I was young – I can’t remember how young but I climbed a fence when I was living at home and fell, head first folks onto a concrete path on the other side.

And that possibly explains why I am like I am to this very day.

  3. Ouch Ouch and Double Ouch!!! A screw in your heel? I’m cringing at the thought! I hope you rest your foot tomorrow?
    When I was young, my brothers and I were all bouncing on the bed. They jumped off and ran out the door,I jumped off and ran into the door. Mum raced me to the hospital and there I left with 6 stitches right in the middle of my forehead!

    Today my son was slashing the back half of the property, it’s majorly hot! so I decided to take him a drink. I get off my bike and go to hand him this drink, look down and realize I had walked in to a huge bull ant nest! These things are huge and together I’m sure they could carry me back to their nest! *laughing* I tried to jump to my husbands quad, but missed and landed on the bar at the back!
    Ouch and Bugger!!! I have a really nice bruise on my right thigh! *laughing* Rest up Mumsy! ……….Paula xxxx

    • My foot is strangely better though the size of the bruise that is forming is taking up most of the top half of it 😦 At least I can bear my weight on it today.. damn no day off work tomorrow that means 😦
      Bull Ants – HATE them I can imagine you hopping and jumping around madly trying to escape. Oh sweetness are you ok?? Ouchies. 😦
      You rest up too. Oh what we can do to ourselves… I mean give us strength! Hope you thigh feels better. Thank you. Mumsy xxxx

  4. OW…. I have stubbed my toes on the footings of tables and bedposts….ack. Sounds like you REALLY whammed yours though. It is now several days past since this post was put up. How is the foot doing now Mumsy?

    As for my accidents ….jaysus … it would take several hours or me to document lol. But a few off the top of my head …

    uhmm…we had a wood fence at home … when I was little I tried to walk the top rail (which was maybe 10 cm wide at best …and not flat either) …I got about 4 or 5 step….start to fall … hit my noggin on the fence and kept falling and I must have grabbed the fence too because I remember getting splinters in my hand.

    Uhmmm … falling off the horses … too many to mention.

    Cutting my palm with a utility knife when I was trying to do some home rennovation work. ow…that one hurt.

    errr…burns…many kitchen burns lol

    My daughter used to play soccer …when she was little and practicing she 1) kicked me in the shin by accident, 2) kicked the ball into my head, 3) tripped as I ran after the ball (ok…this one was not her fault lol)

    Should I go on? omg…that I am alive is a feckin miracle!

    • Bruised but fine now thank you honey.
      Splinters in your head? Ouch
      Ah yes I have fallen off a horse (but yay that you horse ride like moi) but still sorry about the falls 😦
      Double ouch with the knife cut you poor possum. 😦
      What a fine mess you have got yourself into over time – but thankfully hear to tell the tale – and that’s what counts 🙂

      So you’re not REALLY accident prone though ..are you hun? 🙂

      • Well, I am glad that your are healing nod nods … as for myself, I do not think I am accident prone … just living year after year, it is inevitable getting into a bump or two yes? *smiles*
