Down a step I step, straight onto one laptop charger. Over on my foot I go with all my weight, plus that of thirty-odd books. Crunch goes my foot. Green goes my face and I collapse on the floor.
Thankfully I have a wonderful boy who knows first-aid and can lift me like I weigh no more than a feather.
I wonder what the kids will say when they see me hop in with crutches on Monday...
