thought i'd best post something new as it's not father's day anymore. i cut the top of my finger off the other night using my lovely new non stick red knife. it's very sharp and the finger hurts a lot. i couldn't stop the bleeding. i got upset. :( the clinic couldn't fit me in and the locum wouldn't come coz he didn't have anything to stitch it with although i told them it's not a cut but a slice. i didn't want to go to hospital coz a. it wasn't serious enough and b. i didn't want to wait five hours. i went to the chemist and they sold me some gauze that is supposed to help stop bleeding. sort of worked. i had trouble driving as i had a wad of tissues on my hand soaked in blood. it's most inconvenient to have one finger out of action, esp. typing etc, let alone a more serious injury. my tailor friend in bali went home to java for the end of Ramadan and was letting off fireworks. well, i'm sure i don't have to finish that sentence. he has the most horrendous injuries to his hand. he's lost a finger and the pictures he put on fb (omg i didn't need to see them) showed the full extent of his injuries. horrible. so my very sore pointer finger is nothing really. i went to my other chemist on thursday and the lovely pharmacist dressed it for me. i didn't know that you had to keep it covered and dry. when i saw it on thursday morning i thought it needed air coz it was really moist and quite yucky. and of course i didn't have betadine or even a band-aid in the house. i know, that's very slack of me. oh well, could be worse. :)
i don't have any plans for the weekend really. might go up and see the kids. it's very windy and cold here atm. i'm not working on sunday so that's good. enjoy your weekend where ever you are. pic below is a lovely scarf i found (but didn't buy) on ebay.
