Thanks, girlycomic, for the lovely you-missed-zinefest care package. I've read the zine, the bit about preparing for meetings was esp. good and I'd like to pass it on to a friend... and the quench the stench will doubtless see more use as my cast ages, like a fine cheese shut up jeremy

Miffed to be missing the Space Heroes gig tonight, but I'm still not really healed enough for more than an hour or two away from my pile of pillows. I'm forcing myself to rest by listening to CDs I've not heard for a while, with the arm propped up, as slumping on a sofa doesn't come naturally.

Oh, my mum also sent me a comic. It contains the odd factual inaccuracy -- that I was conscious while they repositioned my wrist, e.g. which (mercifully) I wasn't, but it's broadly accurate. And madly cute! My mum rules.

It's factual and true.



P.S. I got to the end of my typing tether before I could add that my mum fell and broke her wrist about a week before I did. Although hers was the sort of break you carry around for a week thinking it's a sprain, rather than the sort that has A&E nurses smiling brightly and offering to cover it up with a blanket. Help me I'm injury competing with my mother

Glad you posted the minicomic!
It's so great. Especially when your mum was also one-handed through similar misfortune!

Exactly same type of fall, it was uncanny.

Your mum's comic is lovely. I hope you're back on the gig circuit again very soon. xx

Glad you liked the care package :-)

Feel free pass anything from the zine on, or let me know an address & I'll send one. Or there's the PDF version http://www.factorfictionpress.co.uk/brainscrapings.html

Lovely little mini-comic by your Mum.

Glad to hear you're forcing yourself to rest.

Heh, your mum must be cool.
Wooly hats and stricken owl's 'dead legs' are excellent.

Not that I want to make light of your agony, but your mums comic is adorable and oddly uplifting in spite of glum!Owl at the end.

No, indeed, that is my mother's job.
