Feeling My Age

Getting older has its drawbacks – but it's a lot better than the alternative.

Pride And A Fall

April 18, 2011 Feeling My Age

Steps And Bin

Tripped on a step and took a headlong fall late this afternoon. Tried to save myself by throwing my weight at the bin and grabbing onto it, but it wasn’t fastened and flew off into the road. Fell hard face first on the pavement .  Concerned passers-by handing me my glasses, asking if I was OK. Yes yes, everything’s fine thanks, but it didn’t feel fine at all. Got away with nothing worse than bruised knees and forearm but it all left me shaky and lightheaded with shock. It was a proper old man’s fall, my second in two years. Welcome to your sixties, get used to it. Time to start a blog… maybe it should be on Tumblr.
