    Out last night with Mrs T on a practice ride for our LEJOG, with full panniers, which was starting on 22nd July.

    Came to a stop where we were going through a gate and Mrs T toppled over. One loud scream later and this is the result of 5 hours sat in A&E

    LEJOG is now off but trying to rearrange my weeks off so we can at least get some time away. Looks like Holland is on the cards in 6 weeks time. shoot happens but she is very pee'd off.

    Currently in a queue at the local hospital awaiting a plate being put in her wrist.

    Getting 3 weeks off for this year was bad enough hopefully my boss thinks the challenge his worth it.

    Ouch! - that looks like it was painful. Best wishes to Mrs T and hope she heals quickly and you get to enjoy some time away somewhere.

    Shame about LEJOG though, I bet you were looking forward to it. Have you done LEJOG before or was this going to be your first attempt?

    Just been out to reassemble it. It's fine as that was one of Mrs T's concern's, the panniers took the impact when she went over, well as well as her wrist.


    Right back to the TdF, may as well do something useful with my day off as I wait the call from the Hospital to pick Mrs T up

    Sorry to here this. Mrs Toffee will have a faster heal time, once that plate is in. Comfrey tablets help bones to mend. Holland and Barrett sell them.

    Bad bad luck. Hard as it is, these things are meant to be, whatever that means.

    No. No, that's just wrong. And your first sentence doesn't agree with your second.

    You do realize that when that pot comes off her arm it will most likely have some muscle wastage and be thinner and weaker than the other?.It may be a while before she is upto doing a big ride/touring.
    Sorry to hear about her accident and I hope she makes a swift recovery.
