Busy day and lots of bruises

Today I had Dgd over for a couple of hours, I did one load of washing and filled the water tank on the boat.
I also filled the coal bucket up, this was the cause of the bruises.
I was coming down the steps onto the boat with the full coal bucket, I miscounted the steps and thought I was on the floor when I wasn't!
I landed on the kitchen floor surrounded by lumps of coal.
Dgd seemed unmoved by the bangs and crashes, she said 'I didn't fall down the steps, I was careful'
Fortunately I landed on my humongous arse so there is no real damage.
I have some Technicolor bruises and a very tender coccyx.
I had offered to look after Ella today so DD1 and hubby could take the twins out.
So after I dropped Dgd home I set off to dog sit.
Ella was fast asleep when I arrived, woke up when I sat on the sofa beside her but promptly fell asleep again.
She had one trip out to the garden (DD1 has a dog door but Ella hasn't mastered it yet) but apart from that she slept, snored and farted the afternoon away.
