.....what can i do

worst bit is where my teeth have hit the ground through the area between my nose and lips swollen and scabby today, nose looks a bit swollen today in fact my whole face does slightly

scab on chin

also damaged my knee which was the reverse of the intention as i was trying to build up some stamina for walking in mountains in portugal

any way

tips for improving my appearance and looking half decent by saturday if you can think of any

we are camping when we are there too so i will look shite [vain emoticon]

swelling will probably have gone down by Saturday. A good concealer should do the trick.

poor thing

cold compresses, definitely arnica, also try anti-inflammatory type gel/cream to reduce swelling and help with pain?

how's your knee?

my knee is doing that creaky inside thing

my knees have had a battering the last few weeks they got really bruised climbing

my other knee was injured from an innovative gate climbing exercise a couple of months ago but has recovered ...aagh
