Throwback Thursday #11

 As I have gotten older I have gotten a lot more clumsy tipping, falling, pulling and just generally hurting myself. I'm sure it all stems from this accident, when I hit my head it must have switched on the clumsy!
If I recall right, I was about 5 years old when I had this accident (I say accident!!) Me and my sister were playing on the stairs and after being told several times to stop by my parents we decided to have a final jump from only a couple of steps up, but my sweet and innocent (looking) sister pushed me and I fell straight trough our front door and onto the porch head first and cracked my head open. I ran, I assume screaming, with blood pouring into the sitting room to my parents. The only thing I really remember from then on is, Eastenders was on the telly and being sat on the worktop in the kitchen so Mom could check out the damage. I had to go to hospital to be stitched up, 20 something stitches and a big white bandage. 
There is an up side, I was given special treatment at school, allowed to sit on the teachers knee in assembly and given a badge covered in stars, I even had my own personal nurse, my Friend Sarah who helped giving me my pain killers.
I still have the scar not that I really notice it anymore.
