Bad, but still not Man-Flu!

Well, here’s what you get for a) not dressing a wound b) playing rough with a dog

While playing Jack dived on me and ripped some of the burned skin, grazing the flesh underneath and causing it to bleed. He made a right mess and it hurt!

But stoically I rinsed it clean, swabbed it with alcohol and carried on: just like most men would, instead of whining like most women would :p

Ouch! Scalds hurt!

Yesterday I was making a cuppa and you know when you’re doing more than one thing and sometimes you get your limbs mixed up? lol

Well, that’s what I did and as I reached out to open the window with my right hand, I was flicking the lid off the just-boiled kettle with my left and … well they met lol

Now I’m certain that steam is even hotter than boiling water so although I don’t want to man-flu this, a scald is worse than a burn!

Anyway, there it is with a bit of blister.  Painful but of course, I don’t complain and just get on with things 🙂
