    Oh dear! That sounds horrible I really hope you’re feeling okay and you’re not seriously hurt! I’m glad you live with a physiotherapist though and that she was able to give you some advice!

    You really shouldn’t have gone to work! Stay home rest up and look after yourself and PLEASE NEVER IN JUST THIN SOCKS!!!!

    Take careeeeee xox

  2. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    Oh no Hannah! I am so sorry this happened! Is it wrong that I really enjoyed the way you told the story though? You made me feel like I was there!

    I hope you are ok and I’m so glad you have someone to take care of you! Feel better!

  3. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Oh no 🙁 That sounds like a horrible, horrible start to the day. I hate that feeling of helplessness when you slip on stairs – having lived in houses with stairs my whole life I have done it rather a lot (although fortunately they have always been carpeted) – it takes a long time for one’s heart to recover. Concussion worthy bumping takes it to a whole different level. Enjoy the bed rest, with lots of books, and coffee brought to you by other people with safe socks!

    (PS. Totally don’t view this as the universe exacting revenge for happiness. Statistically coincidental 😉 ).

  4. leaf (the indolent cook)

    Oh no! But I’m glad you’re alright and still in good spirits. Take care of yourself. x

  5. ash

    Ohmygosh! Just – ouch. You heard what your housemate said: Total Bedrest! Please get less achey soon (:

  6. FoodFeud

    Yeesh! This sounds rough. Complete bedrest for sure. Glad you’re okay.

  7. Chef Amber Shea

    You poor sweet dear you! No no no! I wish I could’ve been there to a) NOT let you go to work, b) put an ice pack on your head, c) make you treats, and d) do anything else to make you comfy and get-better-soon-y. <3

  8. Lou

    Oh no! You poor thing. Sorry but I giggled when your first thought after the fall was to stop the brewing of your joe 😉 Priorities!

    Rest up, lovely gal – I too have felt the wrath of slippery floors/stairs – not good, not good.


  9. LEngineer

    The engineer says – “I can’t believe there is no handrail on that stairway”. What were they thinking when they built it? Glad you’re feeling OK now.

  10. Emma

    I also can’t believe there’s no handrail. That almost sounds against code.

    Pretty crazy that we both had terrible falls the other day. Granted I fall a few times each day at work, but I’m convinced that had I been an old person, I would have broken my back from the odd fall I had (it involved a sort of full flip in a pile of logs, and a lot of subsequent confusion). Glad we’re both okay, and that our happiness hasn’t been compromised:) Get well Hannah! xo

  11. Hotly Spiced

    When I saw the image of the staircase I noticed it didn’t have a handrail and thought it looked pretty dangerous. How awful! I’m so glad you didn’t break any bones but I bet you’re very, very sore! Can’t believe you went to work! xx

  12. Winston

    OUCH! Sounds painful, hope you’re 100% A-okay now. And hello!! It’s been awhile. So out of the loop with blogging lately. Look forward to see what you get up to again. Take care! =D

  13. Catherine

    Be bl**dy careful! I have some terrible stair stories that I AM NOT GOING TO TELL YOU. Very glad you are in one dizzy piece xxxcat

  14. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Ouchies! You poor thing Spay Lady! :O That’s no good at all (not the happiness bit, the fall bit). But I’m very happy that you’re happy!! 😀

  15. Dienna

    Falling down stairs is the worst feeling in the world. Been there, done that. I hope that the recovery is going well!

    Can you get a type of mat to put on the stairs to make the walk less slippery?

  16. Johanna GGG

    ouch – glad you are ok – I actually had the thought – “she is writing this post she must be ok, but how it her foot?” – running through my mind as I read this. take care dear Hannah and keep feeling the happiness and the boldness!

  17. Sig @ Melbourne Maharani

    Oh wow – hope you are ok!! I have done that many a times in those darn thick socks.

    The postcards look pretty on the ground, even if we never figured out how they got there.

    Stay happy (and beware of stairs!)

  18. Ricki

    First: I am so glad you survived this fall. And glad you ventured out despite near mortal injury. Brunch certainly made *me* feel better! 😉 And second: DEFINITELY against code!!!

  19. theresa

    Hannah! I missed this post when you first posted it! I hope you’re starting to feel better! I had a very mild concussion about 2 weeks ago now, from Tika… I was kneeling down weeding, she was running past me, headbutted me square in the chin with her super hard skull. I was dizzy for a few days, had a headache for a week. But this sounds much, much worse, so I can only imagine how horrible you’re feeling! I hope those cookies have made you feel better!

  20. Gmasydney

    Do take care, Hannah. How glad we are you have such a wonderful physiotherapist housemate – follow her instructions! That’s an order!!! Much love xxx

    Stop plunging to your doom! Seriously though, I’m glad to hear you’re ok. I need you alive to accept the package of goodies I have sent you. 😉

  23. Hannah

    Darling! You’re not allowed to scare me like this. It’s flat-out against the rules. Promise me you’ll be more careful with yourself? Pretty please? Big hugs and kisses to make it all better, because I’m not sure what else to do other than worry. <3 <3 <3

  24. Kath Lockett

    Bloody hell, Hannah!

    Always wear slippers (sorry, bad choice of word there) SHOES with some vaguely grippy sole – even uggs do the trick. And those stairs – without a banister or handrail….! Thank your lucky stars it wasn’t any worse but still….!

    And yep, keep on shouting out to the world/flatmate/universe/friendly dog/cafe lady of your general happiness that things are happy. I always do…..

  25. Allysia

    Oh my goodness! I’ve never had a concussion but based on your storytelling I’m pretty sure I don’t want one. Well I guess I’ve always thought that, ha ha. Seriously though, that’s some scary shit…I’m glad you’re okay, or should I say, ‘okay-ish’. Take it easy man!

  26. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Hannah!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!!??!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!??!? Oh my I missed this. Are you ok? Boohoohoo I feel just awful, that is SO scary. Take care of yourself, missy! No more socks for you. None! Empty your drawer right now!!

    […] Thank you all for your lovely (and horrified) comments following my post about The Great Big Valentine’s Day Concussion of 2013. […]

  28. Catherine

    Ouch! That sounds really scary (yes, I’m a week behind reading everything). I’m glad you are on the mend.



  29. ck

    When I first read this Hannah, I completely felt for you and haven’t stopped thinking of it since. That is one seriously nasty looking set of stairs – no carpet and no handrail. And now I’ve read you’ve had another tumble. Not good at all. Maybe you need those socks with the little rubber bits on the bottom. I hope you are feeling better and please be very careful on those stairs.

  30. msihua

    OMG.. you crazy girl. I am so glad you are alright. Concussions are very bad! Glad you are feeling all better now! The last time I fell down a flight of stairs I landed on my backbone and was out for a month! It still tingles when it rains 😛 ARR!

  31. Louise

    OH dear, I’m glad that I’m only reading this now, and I presume you’ve had enough time for a full recovery. I can’t believe you went to work either- the things we do…
