Now the down!!!
Now did you know that Crochet is a dangerous hobby!!!
well, I managed to tear the ligaments in my ankle whilst partaking in said craft!!
How? I hear you ask..........
Sitting in a nice comfy chair with my feet up next to me having my break at work. I got pins and needles in my leg so I stood to relieve them and I just went over, turning my ankle right over. The crack was so loud I thought at first i had dislocated my ankle but it turns out that I have torn all the ligaments on the outer ankle and cracked a bone too!! All this making a blanket for little Charlie!!!

This is my rather shapely ankle then, its varied shades of purple, yellow 
and blue now but thankfully not as painful!!
