  • That's an interesting pic Shanni - is that meaningful location - not near to the drain that tripped you is it? Oh dear you seem to have had an eventful time of it but am pleased to learn that nothing major got broken at least. My OH fractured his toe a few weeks ago the morning his dad died. It got infected so he's on antibiotics now and still hobbling about! TTx

  • You've given yourself a good shake up and it will take a little while to settle down. Take it easy and rest so that when you go back to spain you will be back to normal'ish. I like spain as its so warm and easy going. We have stayed around feungurala when we have been. We like going to gibraltar,we have been up the hill and seen the apes.

    Take care. Sylvi. xx

  • Thanks sylvie Its crazy Ive had worse falls but This one was right outside my gate But the stone round the drain was sticking up and my foot just caught it Mind u I was just saying thanku to the taxi that had just dropped me off!

    Just a hopeless case Its even making me nervous to go Spain and its never worried me before. My friend has a Spanish Finca which theyve built onto halfway up A mountain The views are to die for!!Its between Salou and Barcelona Its such a different way of living over there.xx
