Recently I have been getting very very careless. Yesterday hubby was complaining of pain in his wrist. 'Carpal tunnel again' I suggested and went to get the elasticated wrist strap from the cabinet. It has a bit that the hand goes through and then you wrap the rest around it. So being the dutiful wife I stretched the loop bit open so he could get his hand through, I lost my grip and the loop twanged back into shape firmly on his wrist. So he was creating that I had hurt him so I reminded him how useless my hands were of late and I apologised. Today I went to put some coins in the bank and then I got my Xmas cake(only for me as no one else likes it excpet for the mother in law), and the bacon for the top of the turkey and some liquid hand soap all from Iceland. Then I went to Poundland to buy the dog a teddy of some sort(he never wrecks toys so you can buy him kids stuff) and I saw hanging up a lovely penguin with a hat and scarf on. So I reached up to get it off the chain that held them all. As I reached up and grabbed the penguin the pain ripped through my shoulder and I pulled my arm down fast in fright. I still had hold of the penguin, AND all the other penguins AND the chain. I had pulled it down. I got on the bus and went to pass my bus pass through to go on the ticket machine, my hand flew forward and I let go of it, it landed by the drivers feet. I got my pass back and tried to pull my ticket free from the machine, it just kept getting longer and longer. So I tugged hard and it came free but I also elbowed the passenger waiting behind me right in the ribs. When I got home I could not get the key in the door, I just could not manoeuvre that key in my fingers at all. And then when finally I got inside I got the change from my pocket to pass to hubby. I put my hand under his incase I dropped the change and then plonked the change and my hand heavily but not intentionally into his hand. He yelped and then I realised I had hurt his wrist again. So I am thinking I am better off not doing anything with my hands or fingers for a few days as I seem to have no control over them at all. And after typing this I could see there was soooooooo many mistakes that I had to go back and correct it all. I wonder if it is safe to make a cup of coffee yet lol. xxxxx
