This was to my detriment. As I started into my ninth lap, I heard something in the street below. I looked over the parapet and when I turned to carry on running, I tripped over the Cable TV Dish cord. (Served me right for being so inquisitive!) I hit the surface on my right side just managing to keep my face from grinding into the dusty concrete. I stood up, dusted myself off and took stock of the damage. I had deep grazes on my right elbow, -hand and -knee.
I limped indoors feeling very sorry for myself, had a shower and rubbed ointment onto the injuries. My left wrist, though not externally injured throbbed with pain. I'd obviously "caught myself with this hand. My darling husband popped into the pharmacy on the way home from work and bought stretch bandage and an anti-inflammatory creme. He applied the ointment and wrapped my wrist firmly. I must admit, the pain has abated and I'm almost sure that by tomorrow I can remove the bandage. I have continued to run, using my torch again!
Meanwhile we popped into the city on Tuesday for a few items. While waiting in a traffic jam near the airport, I managed to capture a close and clear image of a plane coming in to land.
Back home I took a few photos of our budgies. This is not easy as the cage bars always detract from the birds and little Sweet Pea is also still quite shy. She keeps diving into her nest. They continue to thrive as a pair.
When I unpacked the groceries, I looked more closely at the toilet soap we'd bought. I LOVED the "Strawberries and Cream" soap. You can actually see pieces of "strawberry in the cake! The other soap also tickled me:
It is called "Wake me up" ...
All in a day's work in Khartoum.
