Thank you piles of unsorted books for breaking my fall off that ladder.
Losses: One destroyed (work!) ladder, one snapped drill bit.
Gains: Some spectacular cuts and bruises in the morning i’m sure, knowledge not to drill whilst stood sideways on a ladder, and a sense of amazement that I can walk and talk.
I’m pretty sore right now, as I have large slashes across the backs of my thighs that were caused by the edges of the books when I landed backwards upon them.
One leg of the ladder gave way whilst I was drilling holes to mount one of those blinds I was nervous of tackling. So now I have injuries, no ladder to reach up to where I need to install the blinds and continued daylight where i’d really like to have none.
As I type i’m monitoring the weird sensation in portions of the skin on my thighs and back; the cuts are increasingly painful but also some areas of my skin are insensitive to touch. When I breathe in I feel like i’ve crested a roller-coaster, that sort of fizzy feeling inside, and I feel cold. Going to put on my down jacket and see how things go over the next hour. If no improvement, it’ll be off to A&E with me. JOYS.
Update 21:25 – After over an hour of lying on my bed wrapped up in my coat with my feet raised above the rest of me, I still feel pretty weird, and i’m not very warm at all. Hmmm. My skin’s not cold, and I can still feel all the parts of me, so I think staying at home is the best idea. Think i’ll get some tea and toast.
