Ready, steady, go..., OUCH!

Well, it's here, 2009, and on Tuesday, it's back to normal routine for everyone.  Lucy is so disappointed to be going back to school on her 7th birthday, but it can't be helped I'm afraid, as I have work to do!  Anyway, she has a 'High School Musical' party to look forward to next Saturday.  I have to admit I very nearly wasn't so ready and raring to go.  I did something very daft yesterday, if you are squeamish at all, do not read on...!

We have been visiting family in the Lake District for a couple of days, and Luke has slept on a fold out bed.  I thought I'd be helpful and fold it away, but had my hands in totally the wrong place, and before I knew it, all my fingers were trapped in the hinges, both hands, both sides of the bed!.  Luckily, after quite a bit of shouting for help, Mr LK came to my rescue.  The damage is no where near as bad as it could have been, my fingers are a little squished, bruised and swollen, but they are ok, I can still sew, yippee! 

PS, I am rather enjoying reading this book (although, my copy seems to have a different cover).  It's full of advice from lots of successful crafters, really inspirational.

ok that just made me feel sick to my stomach... the only thing worse would be something to do with eyeballs... I can't stand the thought of that... I haven't done any crafting since Christmas Eve though I have done a few sketches in a book of some ideas for next week when H is back at school.

I shut my fingers in a door once - my mum's garage door to be precise. It was one of the most painful experiences of my life, so I can well imagine that you did shout!

My eldest is back to school on Monday, the youngest on Tuesday. Then I can get the house straight (ish) again.

Tell Lucy not to feel so bad, I have to return to work on Monday-on MY birthday! I wish I had a High School Musical party to go to! Sorry to hear about your fingers. Ouch.

You poor thing. I hope they arent too sore!
I once trapped my little finger in the car door and that was awful, never mind both hands!

I'm so sorry you hurt your fingers, but what a blessing you can still sew! Hope your fingers don't hurt anymore. Twyla
