Relieved that I did not have to dig out the law books (Tim confirmed that he did not actually want me to write about the law) I agreed to do this. In fact, I am delighted to be published in this serious law journal.Having had a motorbike crash with injuries and a blood infection following medical treatment for same, and now, having broken three toes on my left foot (Below), I feel well qualified to write for such a journal
Yesterday, I added to my collection of recent mishaps by falling down the stars. For the avoidance of doubt, I was sober. It was 11.30 in the morning. My stairs are steep and I simply missed my footing. Unfortunately I landed on my left big toe and have now broken that toe and the two adjacent toes. Not a great start to the year – but in the face of adversity, one shall prevail. I should soon be quite expert on medical matters! I shall hobble to The Bollo which is but 100 yards away for sustenance tonight and, of course, a glass or two or Rioja to dull the pain. Broken toes are astonishingly painful, I have discovered.
