Getting Busy

Unfortuntely Mike has fractured his fibula and is currently unable to do very much on the farm or in the house.   He had a fall whilst strimming on Tuesday.   At first we thought he had probably sprained his ankle.  His toes and ankle were an agry purple/red.

We ice packed it but by Wednesday there was no improvement so I took him to A & E at Taunton.
It took several hours but we finally left with Mike in a temporary plaster cast which will be removed and replaced with another one when the swelling has gone down.   The replacement cast will allow him to walk with the aid of crutches. Unfortunately with the temporary cast he is more or less chair bound because he is not supposed to put his weight on the injured leg but his shoulders are arthritic and he finds it too painful to take the full weight of his body on the crutches.

The shop is getting busier with the autumn approaching and we have stocked up on socks and the hand knitted items are starting to sell again.
Cick on the picture to see our range of hand knitted hats.
