Renovating Accidents

I’m sure there are many more to come, but this is what I have suffered so far.

Yesterday I trod on a nail. It went right through my slipper and into the ball of my foot. I was running late for school, it was dark in the corridor upstairs and I ran right onto it. Ouch. It didn’t half hurt. Weirdly, in the morning I walked on my foot fine, but it gradually got more and more painful throughout the day and I was limping badly by the evening. Today, although it hurts a bit, it has got a lot better.

It was entirely my own fault and all down to laziness. We’d pulled up the carpet when we had to get it out the way when we had the wall bashed through at the end of the corridor; and all the bits of hardboard, including nails, that were underneath were just left there to gather stone dust. Well not any more. After that incident, I spent today clearing away the debris. Underneath 3 layers of hardboard, the origninal wide elm boards lay underneath. I’m not sure how well they’ll take to the new traffic – I’m not going to be jumping on them that’s for sure. But now I can wave to the people downstairs in the living room through the gaps!

My previous injury happened last November when I was chipping away the plaster of the mysterious curved wall at the top of the stairs.  There was a small section of new gypsum plaster so it had to be whacked fairly hard with the hammer. However, I missed the chisel once and hit my finger. Ouch!! The pain beat the nail in the foot that’s for sure. As you can see in the photo, my finger went black and swelled to double its normal size. I couldn’t touch it or move it for days. In fact it was about 3 months before it felt right again. Chris thought I should go to A&E, but I looked online at Yahoo Answers and it appears that plenty of people have experienced the same thing!

Looking for the perfect base – Review of Boots No 7 day cream; Rimmel mattifying primer & Bare Minerals matt powder foundation
October 12, 2017
I’m sure I could be psycho-analysed about this; but I cannot run out of something unless I’ve already bought the thing I’m going to use next – even if I know that’s not for some time! During our recent trip to America, I planned on buying a few products that I regularly use so that I have them all set to go when I ‘hit pan’ on my current ones! The first of these is the No7 Protect and Perfect Day Cream. I stood in my local Boots a couple of months ago and couldn’t bring myself to spend £25 on the next one, so I thought I’d wait until I could get it slightly cheaper across the pond. The second item was Maybelline mineral powder foundation, but as they didn’t have that any more, I was tempted into buying the Bare Minerals matte powder foundation instead. The primer was an impulse purchase as I was drawn in by the ‘mattifying’ bit on the label. Yes, there is a theme here. And yes, if a matte moisturising day cream existed, I would buy that too!….
Slissie review
A chance to curb your cravings? A review of the Slissie
June 5, 2017
This is a new product, so I’ll begin by telling you what on earth a Slissie is! To be honest, it’s a bit difficult to explain, but it’s a weight-loss device that looks a little bit like a vape, and you suck on it like it is a vape, however there’s no actual vapour! Instead, it releases a burst of flavour into your mouth, and the idea is that it will trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten something sweet, and therefore your cravings will be satisfied without actually having the calories of eating anything…..
