I’m not really sure exactly what I did. One of the toes on my right foot has been playing up for some time, it’s been painful but not to the point where I can’t walk and it hasn’t been swollen, just a little off for a couple of months. On the day that I went with my friend to the beach in the early hours of the morning, my toe was a little swollen when I got home, but it was fine, I thought perhaps it might have just been from the cold and walking around barefoot on the sand. I rested it a little the following day and thought nothing more of it.
On Thursday I was walking to get groceries, like I normally do. My foot started to hurt about halfway there and by the time I got to the store I was limping. I took off my shoe outside the store and the offending toe and surrounding area was purple!
I normally walk a lot, there’s little point in having a car in the city, so we use public transport or walk everywhere. I’m also a part time dog walker, so I do have to walk every day! I’ve come to the conclusion that the toe is probably broken, although I really have no clue as to how that happened. But I decided to use my weekend as an excuse to rest it. No photo walks over the weekend, I just stayed home and caught up on some long-neglected reading. Sitting on our second floor back porch, drinking coffee and watching birds come and go from their tiny little nest beneath the guttering on my neighbour’s porch. Looking at the tulips growing in their backyards, wishing I had a backyard of my own so that I could plant tulips.
