All About Mr Marmadaisy

(Lots of pictures)

Mr Marmadaisy has been very busy this weekend.

The weather was glorious so he took the opportunity to get out his new scaffolding and paint the back of the house.


It's a big job!
And some bits were a bit tricky ...


Mr Marmadaisy also made some yummy (healthy) juice for breakfast.

1 orange, 2 carrots and about 1 inch of ginger:

(Mrs Marmadaisy's tip: use a biodegradable bag (or piece of newspaper) to tip the solid bits into then just throw in the compost.

And then THIS happened.

It's either fractured or badly sprained. He has fractured it so many times that the doctors don't *think* it has broken this time but aren't sure. It certainly wasn't fun to hear him screeching in the garden and running out to find him on the floor. I was expecting to see the bone poking out when we took his shoe off. Oh! The perils of walking on your own lawn!! He tripped over a small hole (probably done by one of the diggy dogs).


He's fine, by the way. This was just the temporary cast, we went to hospital again today and he chose a hot pink one (Manly!!) which he will keep for 2-3 weeks.

So I'm on 24 hour tea duty (and get my slippers, get my glasses, carry my laptop ...... ad nauseum)

Good luck with the nursing!!

Oh no, at least it wasn't a fall that caused it. Hope he's up and hopping about soon.
