almost legless (or the crush)

Have just worked two long shifts. Today I was delivering clothes in Wales in the pouring rain. It's so tiring when you have to wrestle with the elements for control of your vehicle.

Yesterday I was in Northumbria, an area I've always liked. I started the day in a very painful way by trapping my foot in the hydraulic tail lift of the lorry so I've been limping for two days. I'm extremely lucky because those things exert a lot of pressure and I could have lost my foot.

When I said I wanted to get legless for Christmas I didn't really mean it literally!

Good thing you don't wear your wedding ring on your foot, or your foot would have gotten ripped off.

Trust me.

Pedantic point, but I guess you were in Northumberland. No such place as Northumbria these days

Damn ring wouldn't fit on my foot!

Yep I know all about the changes in county and administrative distict names, I just don't like them so I still live in the West Riding.
