On Ducks & A Broken Finger

Welcome to Morag, my new follower, lovely to meet you!

We had some visitors yesterday,a gorgeous mallard and his wife.  They came up to the window, quacking loudly for some food.  They shared a small slice of wholemeal bread, well I say 'shared' loosely because she was much quicker on her feet than he was and I had  a struggle to lure her away long enough to give her husband a titbit. The grass is looking like it will need it's first cut of the year any day now.

Our poor GS has been in the wars again. He was playing football at school and was in goal.  He went to save the ball and another boy kicked his hand instead, ouch!  He put up with the pain all afternoon and throughout after school club until his mum collected him at 4.30pm.  When she went to hold his hand he winced and she could see that his finger was very swollen and turning outwards.. A 3.5 hr trip to A &E later, he had been given gas and air whilst they pulled his broken finger back into place....
It's very bruised but he's taking it bravely for a 7 year old.  He told me that the gas & air made him feel  "Mega Dizzy" and rolled his eyes around to emphasise the
Sorry it's a short post again today but I have a nasty head cold and keep feeling a bit nauseous and dizzy myself too.  I'll be back again tomorrow,
Thanks for popping in x



  1. Brave lad, hope you feel better soon.

  2. Oh bless he must of been in pain too, he is very brave xx

  3. The poor guy! He must have been in terrible pain while at school. I wonder why they didn't notice he had broken his finger. It seems like someone should have had a close look after he got kicked. I hope your feeling better soon!

    1. Thank you, Kristie. No-one looked at it even when he asked the teacher if he could run his hand under the cold tap as it hurt so much. He didn't want to make a fuss :(

  4. Ooh it hurts when they pull bones back into alignment, been there, twice. Brave boy, it is bad that nobody at school noticed. I am hoping that my grass will wait a bit longer before it needs attention.

  5. You would have thought someone would have looked at it, poor lad. He's such a brave boy, bless him. I hope you feel better soon. x

  6. I hope that you're starting to feel a bit better. Your poor grandson... It sounds as if he was really brave! Jx
