Ouch

Roger had a bit of set-to with the wood burner on Thursday. He tripped over a cable in the kitchen and to stop his fall, grabbed the wood burner which was roaring away and this was the result – burnt fingertips and burnt side of his palm. You might have heard the expletives where you live. Apart from the frustration of a painful, blistered and sore hand he’s also fed-up because he can’t get on with upstairs. But nursy (that’s me) has told him he mustn’t risk bursting them and getting an infection, so only light duties for Roger.

  8. Wood burners are wonderful, but so dangerous. That looks really sore, I hope the blisters soon heal.

    1. Perhaps we need a fireguard for Roger :) Some of the blisters have gone down, but 2 fingers and his palm are still quite puffy.
