went to the airport on saturday night to pick up jenny and great nanny noo noo who are here for Christmas.
it was absolutely freezing.
and it was late by the time they got thru passport control and luggage pickup etc.
and they had absolutely loads of luggage.
so we brought the truck.
the tailgate was frozen shut.
and we hadn't taken the car seat out of the back of the truck.
so we had to pile jenn, great nanny noo noo and about four suitcases and two lots of hand luggage into the back.
the ride home took about an hour and they were buried underneath luggage for the whole journey!
and nowhere to spread out because of the car seat!
neither of us had the strength to fiddle with the tailgate in the parking lot because he is still too weak and my shoulder is absolutely uselss and we were all just numb with cold.
first of all i have tendinitis in it and now i have the recent tussle with the basement wall to add insult to injury.
my head hit the wall but my shoulder took the brunt of the impact first!
see evidence below.
i went for a mammogram today.
'what on earth happened to you?' the technician asked.
i hadn't realized the bruise had turned so multi-coloured.
"i jumped up to answer the phone and i fell over the cat when i stuck my foot in my p.j. bottoms and i bashed my head thru the drywall." i explained.
"oh!" she replied. "who was on the phone then?"
i don't think i will be wearing an off the shoulder little black dress this festive season.
