Shag and Tern

By bobsblues
Well what a bank holiday monday I had started cutting some block paving up to fill in the gaps and tidy up some loose ends, and ended up sticking the grinder in my lower thigh next to my knee putting a 3"deep cut in it, my wife rushed me down to darlington A&E where after a three hour wait they cleaned it and decided I had to go to durham hospital today to the plastic surgery . So up there for 8 oclock this morning to get it stitched and cleaned again under a local anathetic and finally got out at 3.30 today. So looks like Iv'e got to take it easy for a week for the stiches to heal.BlushBlush
Hope every one else had an uneventful weekend
Take care ( I will next time )

Woops, that sounds nasty! My husband would really sympathise as he did something similar years ago with a chain saw.

Well captured image today too.
