Remember me saying I wanted that tank top finished by the beginning of this week?
Remember me saying that they would be my famous last words?
I ended up spending most of Saturday in A&E after trying to change the sheets on my bed!
I pulled the sheet, but ended up pulling the mattress too, so I let go of the sheet, but somehow, my little finger got trapped in the sheet and was holding the weight of the mattress, and naturally, my finger went snap!
I thought maybe I had just pulled it at first, so wrapped it in a cold, wet, tea towel but it was beginning to swell hurt quite badly. I took it to the local hospital where (after nearly an hours wait) they told me there was no X-ray at the weekend, and no, it couldn’t wait until Monday because fingers are too important (tell me about it!).
Luckily a cousin was around to drive me to Withybush, otherwise it would have been a wait for the bus and then an hours journey, so got there in about 30 mins. I had another hours wait to get x-rayed and then another half an hour to see the consultant. At which point I was feeling pretty pathetic holding up my little finger (whilst people around me had much more serious problems, it seemed like such a lot of trouble (and waiting) just to be told that it was definitely not broken, but dislocated and must have re-located itself, hence the bad swelling and the blue-ness of my finger!
The finger was strapped up and I was sent home for the kids to laugh at me!
It’s not too bad now, but because the swelling has gone down, I can move my finger more and so I keep knocking it, knitting is painful and writing is damn near impossible!
Anyway, I did get the tank top finished on Tuesday, but haven’t started on anything else yet. Ollie loves it, he wore it all day Tuesday (whilst gardening) then got up yesterday morning and the first thing he said to me was “Mummy, can I wear my new jumper?” (And then we spent most of the day at the beach). So this morning I’m gonna have to sneak it in the wash!

Remind me, never again to set a time for when I would like a project finished….no, remind me never again to change the sheets…I’ll get Big J to do it!
