What a week it’s been. Nothing awful, just tiring and it didn’t help that I’ve probably broken my little toe. 

Funny story actually. Well, in retrospect it’s mildly humorous.

I was craving chocolate after dinner on Monday night and I suddenly remembered that I had an Easter Egg in a cupboard in the corner of the room. 

Wearing my glasses, my eyesight and judgement of perspectives is ironically impaired and as I dashed to grab the egg, as if I thought it would escape, I smashed my little toe hard into the leg of a table. 

“Ouch”, I said, or words to that effect. There were some @#%$’s in there and I froze as my toe sent sharp signals of agonising pain to my brain.

I hate being blind. I can’t get through a day without injuring myself. Many people think that I’m in an abusive relationship but honestly, it really was the door…or the table, or the low hanging light…or the corner of that pesky bed. 

Furniture is not my friend. 

So I’ve limped around school all week, the toe throbbing and the pain spreading as I become more like Quasimodo by the hour. 

Apart from that, it’s been marvellous.

Thank God it’s Friday though. The magnetic pull of the Dial Arch has drawn me in and I’m savouring a small libation.

How’s your week been? Something for the weekend sir?
