ACCIDENT: Last Monday whilst doing some hedge cutting in the front garden, I managed to break my thumb by falling off the step ladder. My wife wanted to know why was I up a step ladder as I am accident prone. Anyway I ignored the pain until the next morning my thumb and wrist had swollen overnight. Val took one look and told me to go up the outpatients at Victoria Hospital. I would like to add it’s my Golden Wedding Anniversary today and I am surprised Val hasn’t told me to sling my hook by now with the problems I’ve put her through over the years. Thank you Val. You are my rock and my love forever.
