It would appear that my subconscious didn't think that testing cranial impact resistance was enough. Yesterday I managed to lose balance as I turned round and engaged in intimate contact with the concrete drive. I'm assuming(once again) that nothing's broken as it's all moving, so the OP test is passed, but the OA has submitted a checklist of problems....
Ah well, on the plus side I was wearing thick clothes for gardening( a felted man's jumper is good protection) and my head didn't make contact with either the drive or the adjacent scaffold poles.
Not good timing, as I'm still up to my eyes in things and am now also back at work as the season has started.

    Oh dear, daffy2, that sounds nasty. It is so easy to take a tumble, one moment's lack of concentration or vigilance and that's it, we're a goner. :( I am pleased that everything is working as it should, and I hope you are feeling OK within yourself, because these things are a martini experience - we can be shaken stirred or both. I wish you well. DD

    At least this time the damage(apart from gravel scabs on my hand) is out of sight. Doing Mother's Day festivities with two black eyes wouldn't have been as acceptable as at Halloween.

    I guess it's all a question of timing, daffy :wink:

    I, too, am pleased no permanent damage seem to have been done. It's all too easy to , briefly, lose concentration.

    My own undoing came immediately after agreeing to take part in a long survey on falls among the 'elderly' (despite being far too young, of course. I explained I never fell because I always had to be so careful where I placed my feet. Guess who went A over T immediately afterwards?
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    I'm glad you escaped without any too serious injuries. The main problem when I take a tumble is that I can't get up without help.

    How are things today, daffy? I presume you are starting to do your impression of a rainbow?

    Like the others just hoping you're not covered in technicolour bruises and aren't suffering too much.
    He did not say you will not be storm tossed, you will not be sore distressed, you will not be work weary. He said you will not be overcome.
