Start of July 2017 I quite successfully forgot how to walk down a set of stairs and fell, spraining my ankle.
Spectacularly spraining my ankle.
(Skip this paragraph if you don’t want the juicy details on my sprained ankle!)
Most people when they sprain an ankle roll the sole of the foot to the inside of the leg, pulling the muscles and tendons on the outside of the leg. Now this sort of sprain will typically heal in a number of weeks. Me? Apparently when I do a sprain, I do it properly; when I fell down the stairs my ankle twisted sole of the foot to the outside. This sort of movement with the foot is often associated with broken bones or snapped tendons. Luckily nothing was broken. But healing time is much longer to a typical sprained ankle – more like 3-4 months, not weeks. Luckily I was able to start hobbling slowly after a few days, but it did take a couple of weeks to fully dump the crutches.
Thankfully I have been all good and out with my camera since well before the end of last year. Between the Christmas and family madness over December and the plotting for the good things to come in 2018, it’s been busy.
But I’m back! And I have been out exploring and have some awesome and new photos to share.
So a belated Happy New Year to everyone! Onward and upwards!
