Yesterday I spent most of the day at the Hospital ...All because of this picture!!!

What happened was.. The other day I found at a charity shop a lovely bright yellow wooden coat stand, not all that keep on bright yellow! So I thought I would put it in the spare bedroom ( junk room) till I had time to paint it. As I was carrying it up the stairs it knocked the picture off the wall, and the picture landed on my head!!!
It honestly felt like somebody had hit me over the head with a brick..I just sat on the stairs and burst into tears, and then saw all this blood dripping from my head. I thought I was going to pass out! as I walked into the kitchen and looked in the mirror my face and dressing gown was just covered in blood.
Should I phone an Ambulance or phone hubby... I ended up screaming down phone to hubby, "get here quick I am bleeding to death!!! ( NEUROTIC OR WHAT)
So I grabbed my tracksuit bottoms, " the ones I had on the night before; Well I couldn't go to the Hospital in my disgusting dressing gown!... I think hubby was shocked when he saw the state of me!!!

After a long wait to see a Doctor, a kind nurse gave me a Tetanus jab, and all the other things like my blood presser taken e.g. The doctor finally arrived, and started asking me all sorts of questions as I sat on the bed " like did I have blurred vision" e.g.
"Then all of a sudden" I looked down at my navy blue tracky bottoms, and to my "HORROR"
I spotted grains of " DRIED SPECIAL FRIED RICE" stuck on the bottom of my trackies, from the Chinese I had the night before. All I could think about was... how ashamed I was going up the Hospital like this, with dried rice stuck to my clothes. SHOULD I FLICK IT OFF!! Before he saw it... or try and cover it with my hand?... I think I must have made thing's worse because he kept asking me if my ankle was hurting.

Thank goodness when he went out to see one of the nurses!!!
He couldn't make his mind up to weather to glue my head, or leave it to heal on it's own. As the cut didn't look SO bad when they had cleaned me up..." YES I FLICKED IT OFF" I am ashamed to admit!!! And worst of all, he told me I cannot wash my hair for another four or five day's, which needed washing already.

I know my Mum will be looking down on me now and laughing!! .. She always said "Make sure you always have clean knickers on, and clean clothes. You never know when you have to go somewhere in an.. EMERGENCY !!!
These last few day's I have been spending most of my time painting a lovely old dressing table, it will have it's final coat of paint tomorrow. So fingers crossed...I can show you some pictures later in the week of how it turned out!!

In -between painting I did manage to buy a few vintage goodies to keep me happy!!
Some old fabric to add to my collection.

This cute plastic Spillers dog hook to hang my key's on.

And this lovely old Jacobs floral tin,... "That I love to bit's!!!
Enjoy the rest of the week.. x
These are a few Glimpses of my clean and tidy bathroom; I had forgotten what it looked like just lately to be as tidy as this. I thought I would take a few photos so I can remind my son Nicky this is how it can look!
I know I shouldn't moan really, he is so lucky to be working in the building trade at the moment.
But it's like walking on Skegness beach in the house when he comes in," sand and grit dropping off his clothes everywhere".

But I cannot really make him strip all his clothes off outside...."CAN I" ( bless him)

So I suppose it's ..."KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON" cleaning up after him!!
