You know I’m a clutz don’t you? Actually I’m not particularly clumsy but if I’m going to have an accident, any accident, it will be a weird accident. I’m a magnet for the bizarre.
The day started out brilliantly. We drove to the beach, walked in the warm sunshine, checked out the new Sandgate Pier, and chased soldier crabs across the sand.
The day got even better when I picked up my new love, Miss Janome II. Eeeek!!!
I put her through her paces, sewing a few seams on the elephant quilt (which is coming together again after being thoroughly un-sewn!).
Then we decided to make a batch of chilli tomato sauce. After an hour or so I could smell it catching on the bottom of the pan. When I was pouring the sauce into a new pan, it created a freak chilli-tomato wave that sloshed up the side of the pan, bounced off the sink, and splashed lava hot liquid into my face and eye.
I like to think I look like this. But with added burnt bits. And a little bit of swelling. And a few blisters.
You can laugh out loud now. I am. toni xx
