Today I did ..............getting stuck !!!


I work for the same company as No1 son and we leave work in the car to come home together.

Well the lucky lad is in Italy with work this week so I have an hour to myself untill No2 son gets home. Sitting on my bench having a coffee I decided I had time to cut down a bush I wanted rid of.

I was doing well but as my garden is on a slope I moved round to get at a better angle and was facing down the slope.

I lost my footing and went headlong into the bush landing face down. After uttering a few choice words I tried to get up, do you think I could, no matter how much I tried I could not get up.

I had to stay stuck for half and hour untill No2 son came home from work. After him trying hard not to laugh he then helped me up, I brushed myself off and except for a few scratches there are no lasting injurys.
Oh well it could of been worse…………..I suppose.

Shouldn't attempting gardening on a slope Chris when you've been on the booze!!! Only kidding, you're lucky you didn't do some serious injury to yourself, like broken bones. Glad you're OK anyway.

Gosh I bet you were a bit peeved with yourself, glad you didn`t hurt yourself Chris.
I know this might sound a bit unfeeling but dare one ask if the bush is ok? it sounds as though its telling you to leave it alone, lol.....

Pot, kettle, black Sheilar ????

I know you were not gardening, but I have read your (Good Night Out) post,lol

Just goes to show that I am not safe home alone as my boys keep reminding me.

Anyway had a days holiday today to do the groundwork for my garden revamp after having the tree and bushes removed. Managed to get most of it done with no mishaps, although No2 son did ring to check up on me.
