Hi all, it all started when my chicken run blew down a week or so ago, we are sorting the back garden out and decided to move the run. The chickens are only kept in the run in the morning until they have all laid as some of them were starting to lay elsewhere! Anyway, yesterday i was helping my hubby move scaffolding when a bit fell on my leg, but I just happened to have a varicose vein on said leg and it burst it!!!! It really was rather sore but sat with my leg up with frozen leeks on it and it seemed to go down. Today I went to the doctors and she told me that i have a huge haematoma on it so i have been told to sit with my feet up and it might take up to 3 weeks to heal Am not very good at sitting on my bum as i have too many animals to do that but will just have to be careful I suppose! So please all keep me company while i sit with my leg up with my laptop on my knee!
