A little one to start me off 🤫

Bet that felt good!!!

 

I cut my left wrist, leaving a big beech part done.

 

Fortunately customer great and very understanding

 

Got sorted and got back and finished it a fortnight later. Boy did it feel good when I craned the last chunk onto the trailer and got paid. .

Yeah, cut a couple of tendons to my thumb, which they did repair, but were talking 6 to 12 weeks off work. I managed to pop the repair to them within a week (just sorting logs in the yard to keep the house warm) but I lost so little movement in my thumb I'm not bothered. Went back for a physio appointment and they were convicted I'd only stretched the repair and wanted me to keep resting. But I know I'd popped the repair, I had the same movement I had had after the cut and before the op. So I went back to work the day after and have worked since, a week and a half now.

 

Went back for another physio appointment today (put my splint on for the first time since last physio appointment) she was very happy with it and told me to keep resting it 😉

Glad you’re back in the saddle.
