Day 66

Level 2 Chi Kung. Microcosmic orbit. Jade egg.

Took Kate and Dash swimming in the pool. On the way back, I called out to Katie to take care and hold the hand rail coming up the slippery marble stairs with wet feet, failing to notice that the path I was on was slick with water where they had watered the flowerpots. I went down awkwardly, partially dislocating my knee. Kate was brilliant: finding the key where it had gone flying and unlocking the apartment, bringing me a towel (I was suddenly very cold) and then a kitchen chair to lever myself up on and use as a kind of makeshift zimmer frame. Ibuprofen, elevation and an ice pack (Popsicles the children rejected earlier in the week!) got the pain under control but the knee is swollen and I can’t put weight on it. Not sure if I am more gutted that I won’t get a final swim in the sea before we go home on Tuesday, or that I won’t be able to do Chi Kung. Feeling very cross with myself.
