Two breaks for the price of one...

Hi folks...just when I was thinking of getting back to work after a relaxing Christmas break...fate decided to treat me to two breaks for the price one. I put my hand out to stop the "caught by a gust of wind" garage door squashing The Furry Boy and my poor old thumb took the brunt of the force. Yesterday's visit to Accident & Emergency confirmed my suspicions that it was broken but it's not all bad news...it's a clean break...the bones are not displaced...I'm not left handed so it's more of a "life will be a bit inconvenient for a while" situation than a disaster but it's a reminder of how we take things for granted when they're in working order...
I've had strict instructions to rest which means I'll be delegating the household chores but there was no mention of an embargo on crafting so the one-handed crafter will be soldiering on albeit at a slower pace...I'm sure one hand is sufficient for die-cutting...stamping or playing around with Distress Markers but I may be facing a bit of a challenge when it comes to pulling up my big girl knickers.
Catch up with you all soon
Hugs Kath xxx

Oh my lord, that must be painful! I also know the same situation, having to do the same thing to save my cats from being squashed, but I have never had an injury like that! Time to take it slow and easy for a while and maybe think about getting an automatic garage door opener

Oh dear, not what you need for all your crafty creating s. I hope it gets better soon and is not too painful. love to you and the furry boy. xx

Oh Kath I sooo sympathise. I fractured my left scaphoid in August spent 8 weeks with my wrist in plaster....like you I did still manage to craft...and work..!!!LOL it takes a lot to put us out of action doesn't it. So glad you are not left handed. Do take it easy in the early days though and don't be too proud to say there are things you can't managed. Sending healing hugs and if you need any physiotherapy advice you know who to ask ;0) xx

Oh no Kath, that does sound painful!!! You are being very brave about it! Sending healing vibes across the miles and good luck with the one handed crafting!

No wonder it hurt. Poor you.
I must admit, knickers (big girl or otherwise) was not my first thought - bra straps are far more of an issue.
Hope that as it is a clean break, everything heals quickly for you.
