very short break

                        

 

We went shopping in Fakenham last Tuesday (and NO I didn't go to the Chocolate factory:o)

went to finish our Christmas shopping ~ then went for a cup of coffee ~ Tom Lyn and myself ~ Tom and I queued ~ coffee placed on tray  ~ then I touched the tray and somehow I managed to knock all three cups of boiling coffee over my right hand ~

Felt really stupid as the young cashier rushed  to my aid ~ getting a cold cloth to wrap round my hand ~ which had turned a brilliant red ~ Lyn got a bowl of cold water and there I sat with with my hand in this water as I drank another cup of coffee which Tom fetched ~

So I am giving my hand a rest will be back in a couple of days ~ will be about on the computer but not typing

Sorry to hear about your hand Ally, we'll miss your comments on all the journals!  Hope it's not too painful for you and wishing you better.  Love, Pat    http://journals.aol.co.uk/pm71blackfen/ramblings-from-pat/

Oh Ally, in the states people sue for millions when things like that happen.  I hope your poor hand is healing well.  I just adore Nin!  I understand that terriers have personalities all of their own and that one needs to be aware of this to raise one properly.  I just loved Chalky, Rick Stein's little dog, but he passed away last year.  
Love,
Susie

Ouch!  If it starts blistering get yourself to A & E.  Scalds can be very nasty.  Hope it gets better really soon.

one time we were getting something
to eat at Casino Windsor
it was the temporary casino they used
while they were constructing the permanent one
I was with my mother, her friend from church and Aunt Alma
the plastic drinking cups were stacked up very high
as I passed by, they fell over
and started bouncing all over the floor
it was loud
I swear that I never even touched them
still very embarrassing, though
at least nobody got hurt
Aunt Alma said it was the best part of the day
hope that made you feel a lil better :)

Can you say OUCH!  Hope your hand is better now.  I had an accident myself a few nights ago.  I wrote about it in my CLSS journal.  I just wanted to thank you for the Christmas card.  I didn't get any out this year due to moving, working, and being ill, but I hope you and family had a nice Christmas.

Happy New Year!~
