I bent it like Beckham

Have you seen the film called Bend it like Beckham? It’s a funny story about an Indian girl who wants to be a top footballer, and it’s well worth watching.  But the reason I’m mentioning it is that I’ve bent my foot like Beckham and cracked a metatarsal just like he did. (That’s one of the long bones in my foot.)  Luckily it’s getting better very quickly, but I don’t think I’ll ever be fit enough to play for the Premier League!

To be honest, I’ll be content to just get back to taking my horse out to his field again. My husband, Steve, is looking after him for me at the moment, but I really miss doing it myself. Kubus was very wary of my crutches the first time he saw them, but he is used to them now and keeps trying to chew them.

While I’m healing, I have lots of time to write but I’m finding it hard to concentrate because of the niggling pain in my foot. So I’m doing all the little jobs that go with being an author: writing letters, doing accounts, writing blog posts and making plans. Part of the planning is working out a redesign for my website. I want to reorganise it so there is space for the books about writing that I am working on at the moment.  I wonder if I should change the colour scheme too, and I’m sure I need to change the picture of me because it’s very out-of-date.  If you’ve got any suggestions, please let me know.
