The Day I Tore My Ligament, and What I Didn't Do.

Accidents although avoided, sadly do sometimes happen and sometimes the accidents aren't even our faults, however we have to deal with them and we're the ones left suffering in either a physical, emotional or financial way. When I fell over in a children's school playground, that opens up on the weekend for the general public to use, I ended up in A&E with the news that I had a torn ligament.

I tripped on some sort of metal object piece sticking out of the ground, feeling thankful and fortunate that it was me, and not Spud or my little sister (who I took to the playground), it wasn't until I was handed crutches by the local hospital that I thought of how serious things could of potentially been, after all the playground is used by a school five days a week!

Going home was quite a challenge, not only did I have to get Spud up the stairs to our first floor flat, but I also had to get myself upstairs, with crutches and a very painful leg sporting a torn ligament! Then it dawned on me, I'm a single mum, I have a child to look after and a home to run, I'm a cleaner, a cook/a chef and a baker, a nurse, a storyteller and so much more to my son, and I had to remain the same regardless of the pain!

After looking over and reading the infographic found below, I'm not surprised my injury took a lot longer than expected to heal, I didn't ask for families and/or friends help, and stupidly didn't rest. Fortunately I did eventually recover, and now only have the memory in my head to tell the story.

If you're recovering from an injury it may be worth checking out the infographic below, or maybe it's worth reading over the infographic below for future reference, hopefully you'll never need to act up on the advice, but it doesn't hurt to learn a little big more! After all, knowledge is valuable!

Until next time,

WIN A Huge Easter Bundle!


Easter is just around the corner and to celebrate, Unique Young Mum is hosting a Easter guide and also giving one lucky winner the chance to win a huge Easter bundle to celebrate the special season!

We've also got two smaller Easter bundles to be won which will be coming up on the blog straight after this competition, so keep your eyes peeled for your chance to win in one of the three competitions!

Last year, on Easter Sunday, me and the rest of my family very sadly got the news we had all been dreading for a few months, my nan, Spud's great Grandmother had sadly passed away early in the morning. I received the dreaded phonecall off my dad shortly after 9am, not even a quarter of our way through Spud's Easter egg hunt.

Trying to remain strong for the rest of the hunt was extremely hard, let alone the rest of the day. We moved a few months ago, to a house after being stuck in a flat for years, I believe this was my nans work from Heaven above, so this year, Easter will be the same Easter we always celebrate, only this year, we'll be remembering our nanny who sadly isn't here.

My nanny was the life and sole of our family, indeed our Queen, and she wouldn't want any of us to be upset on such a special occasion. Not celebrating Easter on the blog last year due to my nanny being extremely ill, this year, we're celebrating Easter big both at home and on the blog!
