8 August 2010


I don't know why, but in the last week before our wedding, i seem to be more and more accident prone than ever. I've head-butted the door and the shelf and scalded myself with the kettle, fell down the stairs on the bus, and today, in THE most spectacular fashion, almost killed myself making my way across the harsh and unconquerable terrain of... our garden.
After tripping over a brick whilst carrying our new camera, i then caught my other foot in a power cable, and then fell completely arse over face! Giving my bonce a good whack on the concrete step for good measure. Why can I not go one week without inflicting any injuries to myself?

I have a bump on my forehead the size of a conker, and after thinking that i was going to die of a brain haemorrhage, I was eventually calmed down with a cup of tea and choccy biccy.

So that brought the swift end to my plan to make 50 of these...

well, I might look like the bride of Frankenstein but at least I'm still alive {touch wood}.

The camera hit the ground too, although suffering some cosmetic dents to the zoom, it still works thank god!
Oh dear.


  1. oh dear! That is awful - hope you feel better soon. ck :) x

  4. I am so sorry~ sometimes when I am distracted I am terribly accident prone. Hope you are rested and better soon.

  5. Ooopps! Good to see you didn't loose your personality! Maybe you should try and slow down a little..deligate. I don't think thats going to happen! xxx

  6. I hope you are looking after your poor bumped head.

    I am, shall we say, quite accident prone, and it increased fairly drastically in the run up to our wedding. I think your brain is just trying to do normal life things and deal with the wedding, and it confuzzles it.

  7. Good grief woman, stop moving around so much! Hope the bump reduces, the scald fades and the scrapes heal soon!

  8. Oh no! Well, I suppose things could be worse *knocking on wood!* but yes, hope that all clears away, straightaway!

    (and I featured plimsoll's birthday present on my blog today, I hope you don't mind!)

  9. Ouch! Hopefully it all clears up in time... I usually accident prone to an extent... I have mystery bruises all the time!

  10. I'm predicting that you are getting it all out of your system now and your wedding day will be lovely and accident-free (and keeping my fingers crossed that it's true!)

    I discovered your site thru Pia's and I'm so glad I did! It's just lovely here!

    I'm very happy that Pia spread the word too.

    I feel you need some serious bride-to-be pampering...cake and cups of tea always work for me.

  12. Same thing seems to be happening to me whenever there a special event on the horizon... maybe it's suppose to be for good luck... my marriage is working out wonderfully! :)
    Just found your blog, and had to link to it (so I won't loose it).
    Take care... maybe slow down a bit, even if it's hard!

  13. stay calm, and stay indoors! the week before my wedding I knocked a tooth out! lots of luck for the big day v X
