a slight hitch

well, I've outdone myself this time.  I had thought that I'd pulled myself together and was getting stuck into packing and organising for our move and the unthinkable happened

I managed to dislocate my kneecap... I managed to dislocate my knee cap while packing.

It sucks big time, I'm in a splint (still) and am pretty useless when it comes to moving house.  My hubby and MIL have pretty much done it all themselves.  They are completely and utterly knackered but it's done now Thank God!

I don't know the full extent of damage I've done to my knee... I see a surgeon this week and I assume scans etc will be done and then we know what needs to be done.  What I do know is that, after 2 weeks my knee has not improved much which makes me worry about what's going on inside.

Not that worrying is of any use, I just feel bad that I'm not able to do what I need to do right now for my family.  I also feel bad about missing so much work too, finances are always a concern but never more so when you're about to take on a bigger mortgage.

A sensible little voice inside me reminds me that everything will turn out fine.  No matter what happens, we will be fine.... we might be eating beans on toast 3 times a week for dinner but we will be fine!

I know this and believe it but I am a worrier from way back.  I shall worry whether I need to or not!

So now that I'm unable to do much... I have a lot of time on my hands... it's not been put to good use yet but I'm hoping to get back into my book... I have in the back of my mind that I want it finished this year.  Time to push myself I guess.

Anyway, I will get back to you soon with how it's going.

Hope you're well, thanks for checking in :)
