You know those mandolin things that slice up the vegetables nice and thin for coleslaw - well they slice thumbs really well too!
My own stupid fault I know, I forgot to use the holder thing and took a huge chunk out of my thumb.
I've been to the hospital twice and they're having a few problems stopping it bleeding (sorry if you're squeamish!) Its got a seaweed pad on it now which apparently helps!
So, I can't use scissors..and I don't have brilliant 'picking up' skills at the moment, but I'll try and make something tomorrow to post.
On the plus side - I can't wash pots, peel potatoes, prepare food etc.
But on the minus side........ my hair desperately needs washing!
I have definitely gone off coleslaw - dont think I'll ever be making that again.
The mandolin's in the bin, anyway.
