Housework Kills.

Good morning to you,

.

We have a morning here which looks like the opening of a Stephen King story, all pale and thick grey fog, revealing the odd spectral figure within.

Nice one for August!

.

Today I am a bit sore, and getting this post out is proving to be a bit touch and go, if I am truthful.

.

Yesterday I was affected by a definite form of madness and decided that I should hoover and wash the wooden staircase.

Yes, you may ask, what on earth is so special about doing that mundane household task.

Well, I don’t like doing housework and I have not got the faintest idea of having a schedule or anything, not helped by the fact that I have a sort of allergy to sprays etc. and must therefore mostly use only soap and water for cleaning things.

As you might expect, this does not give you anything like the best of results, not like on those ridiculous adverts where insane grinning women seem to make it clear that having a shining house and white washing is the meaning of life.

.

So, to get on with the story, I had the hoover standing on the landing and was doing the stairs below it with the stretchy tube.

Next thing I know, my really heavy Dyson has flown off the landing above me and smashed into my arm.

.

My elbow had a hole in it from the impact and was rapidly swelling and going black, and there was a tear in the skin which was bleeding….and the pain…Oh My!

.

This was my left arm which has been hurting me now for about three months, every time I lean on the elbow, stretch in the mornings, or generally lift things or put pressure on it.

Both my brother and my youngest son said that I had damaged some tendon thingy which actually threads into and out of the upper arm bone by way of some conveniently placed holes.

Now it was going really mad after being thumped again.

.

I rubbed lots of witch hazel onto the whole arm and then put a soaked pad onto the damaged part of my elbow to attempt to stop the pain and the swelling.

.

Needless to say the stairs can now bugger off and stay messy and unwashed….because housework can kill you if you are not careful.

Look what just happened to me!!!

.

Have a painless and housework free day yourself.
