Laid up

I aggravated my old knee injury last night, by falling out of bed while trying to stagger to the bathroom in a hurry because I was feeling sick. I had been drinking to excess, yes, but I prefer to attribute the nausea and lack of balance to some kind of virus, probably affecting the inner ear. So basically, I've spent today lying on the settee with my left leg propped up on the arm, watching telly and recovering from a virus-related headache I'd developed.

It's the first time for a good few years that I've had any serious problem with my knees, and I'd forgotten how painful and inconvenient it can be. Still, at least I don't have to go to work tomorrow, and I should be limping less by Tuesday.

This has been a cry for sympathy from Zoomy's Thing, a subsidiary of Horseradish Tree Productions. Thanks for listening.

Badger W. sends sympathy in a wholly patronizing way: "There, there."

Don't get me started on bloody knees :0(

Very sorry to hear about your persistent knee and recurring headache problems, but when you say "I had been drinking to excess, yes" I just want to, admittedly somewhat uncharitably, say OH YOU GREAT BIG SILLY.
