I'm middle aged and cream crackered (knackered) and more or less managed to do them..........
Actually it wasn't quite the splits, as if I had actually done the splits I would be in emergency now with various parts of my body in traction. As it is I am just aching in places. How did I do this, well it's bloody well snowing up here. Dd was saying it was raining in the city, but we couldn't have that up here now could we, so it's snowing and it's the wet heavy stuff!!
So being the good wife that I am, I decided to snow blow the driveway and there is ice under the snow. So one of my feet went one way the other, the other way; luckily for me I was hanging onto the snow blower and was able to right myself.
This should be the last time I snow blow for the season (as she touches wood, her head) as once I get my hand done next week, I won't be allowed to snow blow for at least six weeks (that's what I am telling dh!!), so I thought I'd make the effort today, to show willing.
Now to sit down and whine on at dh about parts of my body aching..........gosh I am just a ray of sunshine today!!!
(Actually it is true, I can't lift anything over 10 lbs once I get my cast off for a month, and it is heavy hard work snow blowing.)
