i have a new found respect for all the poor little grazed knees i have tended over the years.

last night i went arse over tit on the drive, ive broken my big toe and grazed my knees really badly -
now i have given birth to 2 children (and one without pain relief)....but i have to admit i blubbed like a big baby over my scrubbed knees!
it bloody hurts. never again will i tell anyone poor wee mite to be brave!

Hope your feeling a bit better, I thought I'd cracked a rib last week. I was in real pain but I think they are badly bruised.

I always had scabby knees as a child and I remembering it hurting.

I think as an adult you really fall hard maybe it's because we weigh a bit more. wink

thanks though....i just cant believe how much it hurts! i cant even sleep under the covers in case they touch my knees.! i am being a big wuss but its still hurting, especially if ive been sitting and then try to stand or vice versa....you see littleys running about with their little knees scrubbed -

I vividly remember falling over around the age of 7 and taking out huge chunks of flesh and the school nurse having to try and pick out the playground grit.

I have never forgotton the agony and crying when having a bath and trying to take the plaster off.
