The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

[JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

Le Snoz

Three days after the event, I thought I'd share the damage I did, even though it involves some very unflattering photos. It feels a lot better, in that I can now move my face and wrinkle my nose without too much pain.

Looking at the left side, where the cut doesn't look so bad but the bruising has yellowed and spread out to my eye:

Cut is a bit worse on the other side, but the bruising not as extensive:

Still quite a noticeable lump on the bridge, which I hope isn't going to permanent:


  1. Ah, so easily done. It does look painful but you'll mend quickly I'm sure Gayle.

    1. From the front it looks pretty normal again now, even if I have got a silly tan from not being able to apply sun-cream to it for the rest of the trip!

  2. Bloomin' Eck!
    It seems I have missed an epic whilst away busying myself with all sorts of trivia.
    All the best with that Miss!
