I bashed the little toe on my right foot this morning by walking into my own bedroom furniture (I have form for this).  From its state this evening I suspect I broke it.  NHS Choices assures me that there is little to be done but strap it up and wait for it to get better.  I am supposed to be running another half-marathon in 2.5 weeks, and doing a long training run this weekend.  Humph.

To cheer myself up, three good things:
  1. ALL THE BLOSSOM.  There are multiple trees in blossom outside the window of my office.  SO LOVELY.
  2. I actually used "On your left!" appropriately while cycling past a pedestrian on one of the shared-use paths on my commute.  Then I felt terribly self-conscious.  But I will probably do it again when appropriate, because it makes me giggle inside.
  3. The children are being lovely: Nico is using "Dada" and "Mama" consistently, and Charles is being very solicitous while I sit with my foot appropriately raised.

Yup. I broke a bone in my foot some years ago. Basically, strapping, elevation, and try not to walk too much (at least you have bike). And if it's broken, it's 4-6 weeks to heal fully. (6 weeks after breaking mine, I went on holiday to Rome, and despite not needing strapping any more, and despite constructing routes that maximised Metros and minimised walking, I did have to bail out of some stuff, because my foot still hurt after 3 days of spending all day on them. Mind, I hadn't done a very good job of resting mine, cos I couldn't afford taxis, and I was working at the Old Schools, so I had to walk a little bit every day as the buses don't go that near, and go up and down stairs to get to the loos.)

Also, hope it gets well as soon as possible! It sucks!

Oh, that's such bad luck :-( Much sympathy.

And you are awesome for managing to see the good things too, and your children are very cute :-)

Exactly that, so I shan't retype :-)

Ouch. I broke mine by walking into the laundry basket - and the other foot's toe got broken by stubbing it on my perching stool. Grrrr. Hope it's better soon!

I noticed blossom today too, it's starting to smell quite heady as I walk the dog over Wanstead Flats. Saw a peacock butterfly on the path too. Hooray for small pleasures.
