Altruism in August and An Accident

31 Jul

I was going to post this tomorrow but have had a little accident today so am taking the easy route. While making more masks for the family, I stitched through the middle finger on my right hand. How? I just don’t know ! I am an experienced sewing machine user….. Β The people at our local Minor Injuries Unit were brilliant, kind and efficient but now I can’t sew for a few days. I shall have to read all day!

    The dangers of domesticity!

    Hope you’re feeling better soon.

      It does feel better already thank you. It’s just too hard to stop using it! Reading for one whole day was fine but the garden was calling, the sewing was calling and ……… I must do better at doing nothing! πŸ™‚

        It’s tough to do nothing when you’re used to doing something.
        Ohm . . . just be!

    I didn’t ”like” the post as this would be odd, and I am not going to needle you about your mishap either, as you seem to have done a pretty good job yourself.

        Wasn’t funny enough to have you in stitches, I hope?

      Yes, it was but somehow no blood on the sewing! It’s much better today and I’m sewing again today, with my wits about me! πŸ™‚
