Update on the bump

Checked in with Hels this evening.

She made it into work this morning, but they then sent her off to A&E as she was acting a little behind the curve, at least more so than usual, so she says. Diagnosed with "delayed onset concussion", she's been told to stay at home for a couple of days and definitely not to drive whilst it sorts itself out.

I make light of these things, and bumps, bruises and the occasional graze or even a spray of blood are all part and parcel of sailing. Boats are all sharp edges, unexpected tumbles, heavy impacts, shiny surfaces and crispy sails to set off the stains to best advantage. But I prefer it when these things happen to me. Hate it when it happens to somebody under my watch.

Glad she's okay.
