Yesterday morning I decided to climb my step ladder to pick the few remaining yellow Cherries at Haddock's; I should have stayed at home knitting.
I knew the ladder wasn't particularly steady; but climbed regardless.
As I was standing on the small platform, and stretching to pick a couple of Cherries, it toppled; and I toppled with it.
I landed on my left hip, and right knee; I'm still not quite sure how this happened. Anyway it was one hell of a smack onto hard ground, and I am amazed that I have no broken bones.
What I do have is a lot of pain and stiffness (I can hardly walk) which I imagine will be with me for quite a few days.
My own stupid fault, and I'm now paying the price; all for a handful of Cherries.
Thank goodness for Ibuprofen!
