Balloons in the sun and broken toes

8 Aug

>Lovely days can sometimes end in tears. Accompanied by much loud swearing.
I went on a date with my man last night… We both made ourselves look nice and I wore pretty flip flops (or ‘plip plops’ as Ben likes to call them).We ate at the local curry house, a new little restaurant which actually serves a pretty decent Balti – he and I respectively had a beer and a large glass of red wine (can’t abide beer myself) and I was giggly, which is a lovely feeling sometimes…
Walking home I insisted on taking the short-cut which included a tiny unlit ‘woody’ stretch of path.
And being a little unstable on my legs after ONE GLASS OF WINE, I tripped over a protruding tree root and caught my little toe on it quite badly….
I think I may have broken it?This morning I am in a lot of pain but I am assured there is nothing to be done but to strap it up and endure, hoping it gets better soon. A good excuse to put my feet up for the week end anyway…!!(…admittedly it has become a pretty shade of purple which is very much a ‘summer’ colour…!! And I am a ‘summer’. Yes: silver lining and all that)

The few preceding hours saw us celebrating the end of Ben’s time as a preschooler at a cute little party which was laid on by his wonderful nursery teachers.Ben had a ball, once he got in the swing of it……and was let loose on all the party food!They even had a cake and a little present for each child, it was utterly delightful…Ben cycled home with a balloon attached to his bike, looking a few inches taller and a bit more grown-upMy baby is now ready to launch himself with open arms and funky dance moves, into the big wide world of school education… I am so grateful……and so is he, I suspect!!
