Another fat ankle!

The photo below shows a reasonably normal left ankle, in fact, this is the ankle that I wrecked a few months ago attempting to hop over a roadside barrier

472

This photograph shows a rather swollen right ankle that I tipped over on Friday.

471

It was all rather amusing really, I was wandering around the fields of Chysauster – an ancient settlement – when I was in amongst the grasses when my ankle twisted and I found myself sitting down and going “ow, ow, ow”! Fortunately there was no-one around to see my quick fall from grace although that did worry me slightly when I wondered how I was going to get back up again.

Still, no damage done, only the fact that I drove from Cornwall back up to Wiltshire via a stop at Lanhydrock where I walked around the rooms meant that the ankle ended up rather more swollen than necessary.

The ankle is not nearly so swollen today, I suppose I shouldn’t really have driven four hours just the day after I twisted it but there was nothing to be done seeing as I had to get myself home. It certainly isn’t as bad as the sprain I had on the left ankle a few months ago! Nevertheless, I could do without spraining either of my ankles for a while!! ;-)

Don't I know it! I'm still recovering from my recent sprain. I hope you feel better soon!

Oh no! I'm glad you were able to get up, considering there was no one around. Although it sounds like the start of some made-for-TV movie where Mr. Darcy comes out of nowhere and helps you and it turns out now you are back in Jane Austen's era.

Guess I watch too much TV. :)

I'm three days late reading this, but goodness!!! You do need to take better care of those ankles.
