I can't believe what I did earlier! I had dropped one of my husband's socks on the stairs but forgotten about it. Later I was going back up stairs carrying a mug of hot tea in my right hand (which is the more steady of my hands) and I had a book in my left shaky hand.
I trod on something, which turned out to be the sock which was folded over on itself, lost my balance, put my hands out to save myself, slopping hot tea all over the carpet but at least not too much over my hand and hit my knees on the rise in the stairs. Thank God I fell forwards and not backwards.
Once I'd got over the shock of suddenly being on all fours straddled up the stairs, I could see the funny side of it but my left ankle which is already weak and my arthritic knees are complaining!
I am wondering what to do for my next trick. I knew I shouldn't have watched those show dances on Strictly. I am getting too ambitious, trying to balance on a sock on the stairs whilst carrying items in both hands. Whatever next.
Anybody else been performing tricks lately? Anyone got one planned for Christmas day?
Love and hugs to all of you, Saskia XX
