Hip, Hip, Hurr-Ow?


Take:

A pair of wellies (and accessory dog).


A lovely bridge.



A curved metal kerb (wet at the time).


A careless step.


And sudden collapse of stout party onto left hip. 

Assume some loss of dignity, although flounced drawers were not revealed to passers-by.


But a colourful souvenir remains.

Sensible walking shoes next time!


Or a sensible walking skirt.

Ouch! So sorry...

Glad to hear no horrible broken bones or twisted ankles. Loss of dignity, no big deal, especially while in the company of a dog. xo S & les Gang

Ouchy! Don't try cowboy boots either, not good foot gear for chasing squirrels.

Arnica cream or gel best for bruising.

Poor thing. Tweed skirts and brogues are the things to go for!

Goretex trainers - sometimes called 'approach shoes' are good. They're designed for the lower slopes of mountains like Everest! Good thing you didn't land on Flossie :-)

BumbleVee said...

oooh.... ouch....!

please take care whilst out walking.... or racing along behind said accessory.....

Preseli Mags said...

Oooh ow! Poor hip and dignity. Lovely bridge though. Did the dogs try to administer first aid or the kiss (lick) of life?

Dan said...

Oh, ouch! Must have really hurt judging by that bruise. Damn wellies!!

Owwww! So sorry to hear of your fall! Do get better soon though :-)

Fran said...

Ouch, ouch. Funny lady-fall-over picture followed by truly painful bruisy picture!

Lucille said...

So glad you didn't break anything but you must have had a nasty jarring shock.

Von said...

Oh dear nasty bruising!Hope all better soon.

Deleilan said...

I'm very glad that you weren't seriously hurt! That bruise looks quite painful, though...

Molly said...

Ooh, ouch! Bruised hip or bruised dignity---which is worse? Like that lick of life comment! Hope you mend soon and wear your sensible brogues next time---along with, maybe, a padded corset??

Lesley said...

Oh my goodness. This won't do at all. I hope Flossie sat by you until order was restored. Did you have a 'phone with you?

annie hoff said...

Ouch - that must have shaken you up a bit. At least you had your big knickers on, but painful nonetheless.

frayedattheedge said...

Ouch!! But it's not just the physical pain, it's the embarrassment! You will have to take more photos of your bruise as it goes all colours of the rainbow!!

Sorry to hear about your crash to the ground...I hope you went home for tea and cake/chocolate or other lovely things?, and are feeling not too sore today.X

nick said...

That's the nicest curbed metal kerb I've seen in a long time.

Penny said...

Oooh, Ow! I do sympathise. Hope it gets better soon although I think it's going to be pretty spectacular on the way. May be a cushion stuffed in the flounced drawers in future?
