a prize boxer



Not content with having a fractured shoulder I managed to break my nose as well.



 I stumbled over the pavement outside Dutch Dreams.
 When my old man returned the next day to photograph the scene of the accident the city truck was already there, spraying several parts of the sidewalk bright orange.
Hmmmm!!
I look like a prize boxer.


I had been out at a couple of thrift stores with my granddaughter who lives in England. She has a great eye, wish I had photographed the Doc Martins, hand knitted Cowichan style sweaters, Roots duffle coat and more that she scored. But she has gone up to Lake Temagami  to be a camp councillor for the summer.


My treat was this super Valentino scarf . ( needs a wash)

 I love it but would rather have a normal face.

  1. Sorry to hear about your latest fall. When I broke my collar bone a few years ago now, I kept tripping up. I think it's to do with the balance of the body being upset and compensating for the other break. Fingers crossed that's the end of it now.

    1. I agree Jean, think I went smack on my face as I was trying to protect my shoulder.

  5. I checked out Dutch Dreams and see they have a little YouTube video called 'Attack of the Ice Creams' . Were you attacked by a knickerbocker glory or felled by a rocky road? I hope you had your ice cream before tripping over - at least you could have held it against your nose to limit the bruising. I suppose the consolation is that, unlike an arm, a nose won't stop you knitting, etc. Get well soon x

    1. so do I. Actually most of the swelling has gone, the bruising is diminishing, but I still have a couple of shiners.
