Things I Love Thursday: Some forced bed rest

Do not let that little plaster full you. Beneath it lies a hefty cut that has had me resting instead of being my normal 100mph self. 

On Tuesday night I forgot to check that a hand blender was off before trying to dish out some stuck chickpeas. Needless to say that wasn't the best decision I've ever made and resulted in a loss of blood, a lot of pain and the biggest fear ever that I no longer had a full index finger. 

Thankfully I still have my finger though the lack of feeling in it did make me really scared to initially check. And then I had to lie down with some kitchen roll due to shock and blood leaving my system. Two and half hours later I was standing again. But I did spend most of Wednesday feeling weak. 

So I've been taking it easy. But chilling and staying still aren't my strongest points. I have been going to bed at 9pm each night but I have discovered these early nights make it easier to get up in the morning. I believe I must keep this up even once that pesky cut on my finger closes up.

This may have been not the worst thing for a lot of people but I can't give blood because my body doesn't cope well with the process. What is a drop for some people is like a gallon for me. How I've been feeling these past two days is similar to the way I felt when I first tried to donate blood (which ended in bandages and bed rest). 

So this week I am grateful that 1) I still have ten fingers and 2) I've gotten some rest because whilst I like to pretend I'm half-robot, I'm not.

Lots of love, and a reminder to not put your finger in a hand blender.
