Want to hear about my comedy injury? Last week I went to my regular Stitch ‘n’ Pint night at one of our lovely local pubs – the fabulous Bridge Street Ale House. At the end of the evening, (having only drunk 2 half pints of beer, I hasten to add) as I was leaving the pub, I got my thumb caught in the door handle but continued to walk through the door leaving my thumb behind me. Ouch!!
So I have spent quite a bit of time at the hospital having x-rays, getting a splint sorted, and getting prescriptions for lots of scary strong painkillers. The good news is that I don’t have a broken wrist, but it is going to take a little bit of time for me to get my thumb and hand back into working order, so there is going to be very little sewing for the time being.
Happily I can use a bit of voice-to-text software, plus some left-handed editing, to help me compose some blog posts, but with no sewing or crafting to write about, things might get a little bit whimsical around here for a while…
Hard things about having an injured dominant hand, that you probably wouldn’t think about:
- Turning pages in your book is really hard work, and you forget the plot whilst figuring out how to do it
- You have to spend money on getting your straggling eyebrows look beautifully sculpted, rather than doing it yourself
- You have to ask for an assistant to help you with deodorizing your non-dominant armpit
Please send speedy healing vibes my way so I can get back to work ASAP – I am missing my sewing and it’s not great for my income…
BTW, one way you can help me and my work here at Very Berry, is to pay a call at one, or all of my sponsors’ shops.
