You have all experienced it, and even mocked it. But this weekend has just been one annoying incident after another!
My boss left for a week long cruise of the South Pacific - lucky duck! - and I'm running things solo for the next week (but I've only been there for 9 weeks... as a casual!). Okay, so yesterday (Day 1) I end up with a few curly situations where things happened that we hadn't discussed, and I hadn't thought to ask. It all worked out - however my deodorant nearly failed me in the meantime.
Then, last night while I was putting some laundry back in the wardrobe my stripy ninja cat decided to play under the hanging clothes. Nothing sinister about that? Yeah, right. As I was sliding the door shut she made a desperate leap out and over a large glass coffee table top that I'd had propped up on it's side. She bumped it and it came crashing down... onto my ankle! It felt like a bomb had gone off in my ankle and the vein that runs down the front of the ankle started to swell like a balloon. Unfortunately I couldn't just limp off to fix it. I had to go lug out the vacuum cleaner, and then clean up the broken glass so the furry people didn't cut their feet! Once that was done - painfully mind you - it was off to the bathroom to get some cold water and a compression sock. Funnily, I didn't see said cat until I was tucked up in bed - and even then she managed to walk on my ankle as she clambered over the quilt.
Today I took it easy. I made a comfy nest in the lounge room and watched Season One of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries (fabulous!) and read Celebrity in Death. Thankfully tomorrow is a public holiday here so I can take it easy again. Finger's crossed I will be fit for duty on Tuesday, otherwise I will up the creek without a paddle...
