WOW: Patiently Recovering

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays

Last week I fell over and hurt my knee and shin, I was bruised quite badly. Since then the bruising has spread, and whilst I could walk about fine (if a bit uncomfortably) right after the fall, this week I have been in bed with my leg propped up, waiting for the severe bruising to go down. My pain and swelling has actually got worse. It hurts more today then it did when it happened! The worst thing is sitting around when I have so much I'd rather be getting on with.

I did have a few visitors around yesterday to cheer me up and they brought chocolate and macaroons, so I can't complain.

The macaroons taste as good as they look!
It seems such a shame to eat these, they're too pretty to look at.

I'm hoping to be back on my feet this week so I can go and enjoy the Melbourne Flower Show.
What's Your WOW ?


  1. Lindt chocolate AND Macaroons now all you need is for DH to make the best ever cup of coffee to enjoy them with! Get well soon (limping around the garden show is NO fun!)- Hugz.

  2. I feel for you so bad, my best friend is going what you are going through she found out her ankle is broken. She has a boot and leg elevator at all times, she has 3 families taking care of her. She cannot do anything. It will be a total of 6 weeks. Take it day at a time.

  3. Are you sure there is no break? Take care of yourself and hope you are better soon.

  4. Hope you feel better soon. Glad the chocolate and macaroons help ease the pain. Thank you for hosting WOW.

  5. Hope you heal up is no fun being down with an injury. Friends and desserts help however....

  6. Dear Esther, so sorry about your fall, and injury. Have you been to the doctor? I worry it is not more severe than you think. I hope you can go soon. Take care!

  7. Oh Esther wish I could help. Maybe an X-ray is in order. You even gave us so much of your time when you weren't feeling well. Hope you will be better soon.
    Hugs Bunny

  8. Oh my goodness! Falling is no fun at all. Glad you had friends bring the macaroons. :)

  9. Beware of blood clots! Get well soon.
