7 things you never knew about crutches!

  1. I have found the cure for 'Bingo wings' - 3 weeks hopping around on crutches and no more flabby arms!!
  2. They are great for gently poking the kids out of their TV coma!
  3. No matter how carefully you park them, one look and they fall over!
  4. When they fall over it is always away from you, so you can't reach to pick them up!
  5. Hand cream and crutches don't go together!
  6. A new curtain opening and closing device!
  7. People give you odd looks when you are on crutches(and really weird looks when you are in a wheelchair)

 One last thing I would like to say, a huge thanks to my Mum, who has now gone back to UK for a well earned rest! She has been an absolute star doing all the stuff that needs doing around a house and more! Thanks Mum!!


  1. great to have a mum like yours:)

  2. AWWW...the "hand cream" one sounds dicey!

    Glad you are posting again! is to a speedy recovery.

  3. Hello Amanda
    I'm sorry you've had to go through all that you have, i can see your sense of humour is still intact lol Here's hoping for an extra speedy recovering and getting off those crutches :)

  4. Your 7 things about crutches made me smile this morning. I was on crutches myself for a couple of months 4 years ago and I do recognize all what you say. Hope your recovery will be fast and how great of your Mum to have helped you out. A big warm hug from me ;-))

  5. This totally cracked me up! I hope you're doing well :)

  6. I spent a year on crutches and totally agree with everything on your list!
