Lucy, The Shining One

A little self-care

I have an ouchie. I’ve no idea how I’ve done it* but I’ve sprained my ankle – not badly just enough that it’s aching and I can’t put enough weight on it. Spent a couple of hours in A&E this morning, got it x-rayed to check it wasn’t broken. They’ve strapped it up, given me some painkillers and instructed me to rest it for a few days.

Which is how I’m sitting on the couch with my foot up on a stool. S made us a roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings which was delicious. And now we’re all curled up on the couch, with mugs of tea, under nice warm blankets with purring cats (and Odin flopped down over J’s feet) and we’re trying out some of the new season tv shows.

Some are hits, some are misses but it’s fun and it’s one of my favourite ways to spend time. Of course, S got all cranky with some of the science of time travel in Timeless. Although we do all agree that Hayley Atwell has amazing ass and tits in Conviction.

So yes, despite my ankle hurting, I’m focusing on the positive. I’m warm, I’m comfy, I’m snuggled up under blankets with the people I love, I have apple and cinnamon tea and I’m spending an afternoon watching TV… what’s not to enjoy about that?

* Actually, I know exactly what I’ve done to it. J’s got himself all interested in predicament bondage…and this is not a complaint because that is just fun! But when we were playing this morning, I wobbled a little too much and went over on my ankle. Oops!



  1. Lazy afternoons cozied up are the best. 🙂 I’ve been so busy lately with my family and other obligations that I haven’t had much time to do that. Last night I was finally able to snuggle under the blankets in my bed and read, but I was so tired I only finished a chapter before I went to sleep, haha.


  2. Yeah, J fell asleep on us – he ended up napping for a good hour and a half. We were all so comfortable though 🙂


  3. I’m sorry to hear about your sprained ankle :(. Hope it’ll fully heal soon! It’s definitely good to focus on the positive. Even though you can’t put weight on your ankle, you’re finding other ways to be productive and happy! 🙂


  4. Ouch! That sounds painful. Hopefully it heals nicely. But it is a great excuse to curl up on the couch to watch tv!!


  5. I’m sorry about your ankle, I hope you have a speedy recovery and rest well although it does sound like you’re doing that now 😉 Love comfy and lazy days!
