But we are talking again now! She did try to kill me however! LOL
Ok.. to clear up any confusion.... here is Matilda-Rose.. well, it is not actually her.. but could be her twin! LOL
When I got my foot caught.. I felt Matilda-Rose start to tilt.... well she is new.. only had her a few weeks and I didn't want to drop her... so I tried to save her, but I was unbalanced... and Matilda-Rose is a big girl (she takes a 26inch wheel and I have to stand on tiptoe to get on her.. and I am not short!)... the momentum of both of us meant I went straight down on top of her....Backwards!!!!!
Now.. partly this was good..... avoided the gravel... but was also bad as I now have perfect imprints and bruises to describe the frame size of M-R graphically if necessary cos I landed on her...... plus the offending pedal wizzed round and smacked me upside the kneecap causing a luvverly friction jeans burn... but my elbow... oh.. my elbow.. was bent... funny bone (which soooooo is not!!!) took most of the impact.. yup.. on the gravel.. (A lot of my elbow is still there... on the blasted gravel!!!LOL) Ooooo it hurt!!!
My poor mummy was leaping around trying to sort me out, get me up, remove gravel etc etc etc.. all I was worried about was had I scratched Matilda-Rose!!!!! (I hadn't.. so pleased!!)
Now... having recovered... although I am very sore and swollen... I am also very proud.... I have been thrown off horses at all kinds of speeds (including an ambulance rush to A&E).. I have actually jumped nearly 7 foot without a horse cos the sod decided at the last second it didn't want too.. and I mean the last second!!!! I have been reversed into by a van.... etc etc etc and I hardly ever bruise.. I mean really hardly ever....
Don't panic.. it is my thigh.. but it is a BRUISE!!!!! I am so happy... proof it happened! ROFL
Tell you what though.. having a bath last night hurt like.. ouchies..... hot water v no skin.. no contest! LOL
Not done much today aprt form feel sorry for myself! LOL
Gentle hugs all
