I jumped in the car and headed straight over there, it is only about a 10 minute drive

I gave her some Nurofen and made her a nice cup of coffee, she just wanted me there as it gave her a bit of a shock and her ankle hurt a bit and her knee and legs where she fell but she is OK!

I just get so worried when I hear that she has had a fall
If your Mum keeps having pain she needs to go in and have x-rays done. She may have a fine fracture. If this is becoming frequent get her into the doctor.

We have been to the ones in town here a couple times each. A person can always seem to find something different everytime you go regardless if you've been there before.
We have a children's museum here where parents can let their kids run free once you go through the front door. It is not a daycare, they actually learn things according to their age. As a girl scout myself, we used to go there. And right next door is the transportation museum for Dad. Well, the whole family. But Dad goes crazy when he sees the 1800's cars.

When we moved from Oregon to Ohio we had to shrink our inventory substantially. That meant we had to sell our gorgeous sofa.

We arrived in Ohio with 3 chairs - 2 recliners and 1 glider and that's it. So for a bit over 4 years we have not had a sofa ... was getting real tired of that !

So this morning DH decided it was a good day to begin shopping for a sofa - and when DH has the desire to shop I jump on it .. he is not a fan of any kind of shopping. We made a list of 3 places to visit today and 3 tomorrow with lunch out both days.

We only made it to 1 place .. they had EXACTLY what we would have created if we'd known there was such a critter. We decided that what we found simply could not be topped so we went ahead and bought it.

It will be here in about 6 weeks. We ordered it in a different color than what they had there.

It is the MOST comfortable sofa I've ever encountered. It has dual recliners. It is a powered sofa so the recliners are also massagers

The recline on these is from very slight to complete layout. The depth of the seat is nice ... I'm short so my feet never touch the floor on a sofa if I sit all the way back .. they do on this one .. yayyyyy !

It comes with an emergency battery pack so that if you are all reclined and comfy and the power goes out you can get out of it ... LOL I say .. to heck with that .. someone bring me a blankie !!

Then we had a very nice lunch at a local English Pub we hadn't tried yet. It was a super day here !!

So since we have about 6 weeks to wait we are going to take advantage and re-paint, clean the carpet and all that good stuff.

Sounds great! When you are fully reclined and the doorbell rings, you'll be painfully aware of how long it takes to get out of the recliner.

Thank you Andy

Yes, it is scary as I worry what it does to her poor bones and back etc

She was wearing these slip on shoes that are sort of a rubbery plastic type material and would have been very slippery on the wet floor, she has said she will not wear them again whilst mopping floors!

She wanted me there as she had a bit of a shock, so I was glad I could get there so quickly for her

She stayed over at her partners last night, he came and picked her up as I didnt want her driving...I will be phoning her this morning to she how she is feeling

Thanks Fi, I will certainly be asking her this morning when I phone her how she is feeling and that she should get a check over if she still feels pain. I have no doubt she will be very sore in lots of places this morning the poor thing

I have those thoughts from time to time.

I can't find one that will peacefully coexist with my other stuff.

I also think about getting rid of my couch so I can have more bookcases!

Funny, I never think about having any empty space!
