Blogging Singlehandedly

Pardon the pun. Today I’m quite literally blogging singlehandedly – as in with one hand – since my right hand has been reduced to a club confined to a cast for the time being. Sigh…

 Me & my broken hand
Me & my broken hand 🙁

I guess I should explain. I wish I could say I broke my hand working on some awesome DIY or Dreamhouse reno project, but sadly that is not the case. Last night I picked a fight with a set of stairs on the GO train on my way home. And lost. EPIC fail! I’m sure anyone who knows me well probably isn’t surprised. Clumsiness is kinda my thing – in my defence though, in my 33 years this is the first time I’ve broken anything…

The casualties of war:

cast & x-rays
My casted, broken hand. X-ray shows 4th metacarpal fracture.
Ruined high heels
My beautiful Nine West Pumps…ruined! 🙁

So it looks like I’m gonna need a new pair of shoes. That AND things might be a bit quiet on the blog for a little while – at least until I get used to left handed typing (or can fashion some sort of stick or poker to use with my club hand, lol).  Cause as much as I love my WordPress iPhone app, my left thumb is getting tired already.

Kes will be picking up a bit of the slack over the next few days so it’ll be a slightly different voice but we’re still here! And I’ll still be around on facebook & twitter so drop me a line!

Have any of you sustained a similar injury? How long did it take to heal? What’s the most bone-headed thing you’ve ever done to hurt yourself? We’d love to hear your stories!

  1. Don’t worry about the Pumps my Dear! Lots more where that one came from. LOL, Get well soon my Darling Daughter-in Law!

    1. Thanks Alex! My hand has since healed – tho I still notice a slight loss of strength from time to time & soreness particularly after long periods of use (not so convenient when trying to undertake DIY projects, lol!) It’s a work in progress tho & for the most part it’s better. Thanks for stopping by!
