Staggeringly crappy luck. Are we in a competition for crappo stuff in our lives. Rhys came down with the runs today on top of car needing $7200 of repair and father in law having heart attack last week. I did 4 rides to school on Wednesday. Thighs of steel I tell you.

Was it your dislocated knee leg or the other one? Were you juggling pineapples or something.

Maybe you could get one of those gocarts. Like a golf cart. Taj could drive it for you. Now you have a damn good reason for sitting on HOP and chatting to us all biggrin biggrin

Here I yelped, as I was holding a sleeping baby in my arms, so I hobbled to buggy, put her down, then headed for bathroom to as i was either gonna faint or throw up from fright! spent the next 15 mins on my knees next to toilet, cryin in pain, fighting waves of nausea! frown

Which leg bit did you break, do you have to wear a full leg cast?

Also, more importantly, did you get a cast that's a cool colour and not a boring white one?
