Check out the shiner...

Isn't she a beauty!!!

This is my knee this morning, after I took a rather embarrasing stumble at work on Thursday. I was out at a customers site, walking back to the car. My (male) boss was walking behind me, and there were two tradies sitting having smoko - they had a front row seat for my spectacular stack!

I slipped on the driveway (no it wasn't wet, I'm just a klutz) and went sprawling... ended up looking like a bit of a contortionist but managed to land rather heavily on my right knee cap - ouch.

Of course I got straight up and started laughing it off - "oh THAT?? Naaaaah- doesn't hurt a bit! Dont be silly, I'm fine, REALLY!" and started limping to the car.

All the while my knee is screaming and felt like it was burning. SHAME. So embarrassed! I've been using Arnica to bring out the bruising, and its starting to go a little yellow around the edges already, so thats good.

This afternoon I'm having another massage - cant wait. Hoping she can really get into my shoulder and loosen it up some more, and also I'm suffering DOMS all over from a super effort at the gym this week. Cant wait to see a little more arm definition come back, I've missed it.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone!

I hope you had a lovely massage and feel all loose and free :)

Have a great weekend :)

Anica's a great product so it should be healed in no time, fingers crossed. I used it before during and after my breast augmentation so I know it works Hilary.

There's a few of us "klutz's" around Em, glad I'm not the only one!

Thanks Lia, Arnica's great isn't it, especially for someone like me who bruises easily!

Thanks Deb, its not too bad now - looks worse than it feels I think!

Thanks Kristy!

I like bruises that you've earnt - but only the ones that look heaps worse than they felt ;) So I feel tough! lol

Hilary said...

Rae that is too funny! I obviously need a little more practice at looking like I meant it!

Thanks Cat, its almost gone now.

I know what you mean Selina, if only I'd earnt this one in a tough way, instead of an embarrassing one!
