My poor mother fell down the stairs this morning and broke her ankle in 3 places. She then had to crawl to the phone and call her own ambulance. She’s since gone into surgery and had two metal plates put in. Should be out of hospital in three or so days.
I tore ligaments in my ankle playing football once. Seeing you own foot bend the wrong way can be a very traumatic and painful experience. Swelled up like a barrage balloon!
I’m going to take her some DVDs to watch in the hospital, but I’ll leave Misery at home.

Get well soon Mum!

Group presents

For about the last 10 years my friends and I have clubbed in together to get each other a birthday present. It’s a great idea which has certainly paid dividends to me. This year my wonderful friends bought me a pair of Sennheiser PXC 300’s which is the kind of extravagance I could never justify buying for myself. Previous gifts include: a Lomo, a Ferrari driving experience, a 1.3MP digital camera (this one was a while ago), a Yamaha Tape Deck (this one was also a while ago, but a top quality item), a Panasonic car stereo, a Canon 35mm (yes… another camera), the list goes on. I definitely recommend it for the your group of friends in your twenties. Now though, as we’re all buying our homes, it’s proving difficult to find a worthy gift. All we want is sofas, plates and curtains. How dull is that?!
