Missfortune no. 3

Yesterday fell over, this morning the car wouldn't start (Im charging the battery now) and-----

I unpacked my Bissel carpet cleaner (that I thought was battery, but its mains) shoved my hand down into the box to pull out some packing and ripped the skin off my arm on a sharp tough corner of the cardboard.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Ouch, that looks sore.

You should know that cleaning anything is risky, much easier and safer to just let it build up. 😂

I hope it goes well, we are all thing Thank heavens that was not my arm.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I had a similar injury after I tripped over a bit of fresh air. It took ages and ages to heal with multiple trips to the nurse so do take care.

After steroidal cream/oinkment for years, my skin is thin and easily damaged too, I have only to press hard and it comes up purple.
