Today was a typical example.
I woke up early, let the dogs out and made myself a coffee to take back to bed. I placed it on the bedside cupboard and opened the drawer to get something, knocking over the mug of coffee which shot everywhere. Up the wall, the bed, the top of the cupboard and inside the drawers. So everything had to come out to be cleaned and dried out, and the bedding changed (I only changed it yesterday of course).
I had arranged to meet Gwen.1 in Milas today at 9.30am. I showered and got dressed. I leave the dogs outside while I'm out so I filled their large water container to put in the shade. As I was carrying it outside and down the steps, I tripped and tipped the water over myself. I was drenched and had to hastily change my clothes.
By this time it was getting late so as I rushed out I banged the top of my foot on the metal gate. It just broke the skin but wasn't bleeding, but it is now bruised and swollen.
Fortunately, I managed to spend the day in Milas and return home without further mishaps. However, whilst washing up about an hour ago, I dropped a glass jar in the sink. As I tried to grab it, it smashed and sliced the top of my finger quite deeply. It probably needs a stitch, but I have managed to stop the flow of blood with a steri-strip type dressing, so hopefully it will heal ok.
I should have stayed in bed today.
