My toilet roll holder is on my broken right hand side – so I took the roll off and would attempt to tear off the appropriate number of sheets with my left hand. This would invariably result in either too much, too little, ripped, scrunched paper or the roll catapulting across the room! I increased the number of rolls on hand to cover for catapulted ones……. but I soon found tissues to be so much easier:
It was 4 or 5 days after my "trip" before I attempted to shower myself (I'd been doing a washcloth clean up tll then). I thought that drying myself might be challenging but luckily the previous home owners were giants and had installed the towel rack nearly as high off the ground as I am (I'm 5'8" tall and the top of the rail is at my ear). After a shower I just back up to the towel and wriggle; turn around and do the front. I don't have to take the towel off the rack and struggle with getting it back up there!
64 fl oz (1.89 ltr) weighs about 4lbs (1.8kg).. the first time I poured from a newly opened bottle using just my left hand nearly half the bottle of juice sort of "gulped" outwards staining the cupboards and floor in a sticky red mess. I suppose I was sort of laughing as I attempted to clean it all up but really I just wanted a drink – and not necessarily cranberry juice by then:
The last few days have been sunny so I decided to see if any daffodils or iris were popping up. I spied some under the straggly rose bush …. got too close, tangled my left arm in thorns and ended up on my bottom on the pavers. It's difficult getting up from the ground with one arm in a sling and one in a bush! (I'm turning into my mother!).
And this I will never be able to recreate….. Tearing some paper off I managed to get my middle finger well and truly wedged inside that metal guide when the holder tipped over. Yes, my knuckle is bruised. .
Thank God I go back to work tomorrow – I should be safer there. …… I mean how much trouble could I get into just answering the phone…….
