    I'm hoping I'll get discharged from hospital today. I came off my pushbike on Tuesday evening and landed on my head. I remember nothing. Woke up in the back of an ambulance. Had bleeding on brain, smashed up face, a couple of other broken bits that are now screwed and pinned and bruising everywhere else. Weak but on mend. A decent quality bike helmet saved my life. Looking forward to a week or so sitting in bed recuperating with the cats. Not currently allowed near a screen or TV for any length of time because of the brain swelling. Appears to be no permanent damage apart from two fingers on my non pot-noodling hand which may be tuliped. Will keep my film-star good looks. Lucky escape.

    I was discharged from hospital today. I got an infection three weeks back, which initially responded to antibiotics, but made a comeback (e-coli), and nearly collapsed on Sunday. Monday I was admitted as an emergency, and put on an IV antibiotic drip. So this weekend, I'll be mostly coach potatoing - got low sodium blood levels, so I'll be munching on salty snacks with impunity. Hoping to do the filming and FOH for a theatre production on Sunday, but if I can't, my videoing partner will handle it. With a swollen tender bit, I'm making friends with an icepack.

    @Lockhouse - my daughter had a ski accident and got concussion a few years back. Similarly banned from screen time. She listened to a lot of radio and podcasts. If she tried to think about the accident, her head would hurt... She was fine a few weeks later. I wish you a speedy recovery. I should be back to normal by Monday.

    Waiting to hear if yea olde jalopy is fixable without it costing me an arm and a leg. I would ideally like it back tomorrow so I can drive it down to Sussex on Sunday for a christening.

    Otherwise, I'll be getting the train to Sussex on Sunday for a christening.

    Off to see the new Terminator fillum this evening. Guns and robots, what's not to like?

    And your good self?

    Getting stuff ready for the Hallowe'en party tomorrow evening.

    Sunday - dunno just yet. Depends what her-in-doors has planned!

    Probably sex or DiY, or maybe sex and DiY. Or maybe the sex will be DiY...
