OOTD Favourite Maxi Dress: A Stylish Day Out In York

OOTD Favourite Maxi Dress: A Stylish Day Out In York.

Happy Saturday. It’s no fun getting into your mid 40’s. As if weight gain is not enough, I am also getting so clumsy. I have a few days this week, which I would rather forget.

As if being caught out a mile away from my mum and Dads house in the torrential rain was not enough on Thursday, {You can read about that day here: #WeekendLinkUp} I am sure it was Friday the 13th yesterday!? I had a shocker of a day.

To start the day I dropped a plate onto a stone floor, smashing it everywhere and cutting my leg. Then I rush downstairs, knocking my right arm really hard on the door frame when trying to sneak through the door, instead of opening it wider. Not only did I hurt my arm and I trapped a nerve and jar my neck.

Then I ended the day slipping out of the shower on a wet floor, twisting my ankle really bad, smashing my toes on the wall and causing 2 blood blisters a cut elbow and a bruised back. I am not safe to be let out alone, am I!

Now I can not walk properly because of the pressure when I stand! I thought I had broken my foot last night as the pain was awful but after a good night sleep, it looks like it is the blood blisters are stopping me from walking properly. Fingers crossed!xx
