Now I know I'm getting old.  Just tripped up in the bedroom, and really crashed down hard, barked my right knee, skinning it enough to draw blood, and knocked my right wrist.  I have got off very light really.  I'm very lucky the wrist did not break. It was several minutes before I could manage to get up with the help of 'Er Indoors.  A few years ago I would have bounded back onto my feet.  I suppose however that getting old with all its consequences is better than the alternative.

OK thanks, and very lucky, just a very badly skinned knee, bad enough to bleed, and a general feeling of unsteadiness.  Just taking it easy for the rest of the day.  ( A good excuse). cool

That must be why my wife was shouting "What the hell are you doing on the roof?" :-)

:hug: ah andsome ... get and strap that wrist for a little additional support and take it easy. I know what you mean. I slipped on a slick path in the garden the other week and whereas years ago I'd have just laughed and bounced back up it did shake me up a bit.

Be lazy and pamper yourself.

Glad you're feeling better my friend.

Thanks, but I couldn't have been going slower. I had walked round the bottom of the wife's bed, and she had thrown the covers back too far, I got tangled up and down I went.  You just don't realise how much less capable you are when you reach nearly eighty. I must pick my feet up more

I'm an old crock ....  very fragile ... worth a bomb. Like an antique. teacup

I have noticed when I go to the supermarket if I have to bend down to the bottom shelf that me knees ain't what they were. No springs in them.
