Should have worn sun glasses

Yesterday, as I stood precariously balanced on the weed choked slope, pulling brambles, a stick bounced free of its confines and hit me in my eye. Now I know what being poked in the eye with a sharp stick feels like -- painful. It hit the corner of my eye, rather than the eyeball. Basically I'm trying to rest it but if it still hurts as fiercely tomorrow, I will go see the doctor. Honest.

Next time, I will garden in sun glasses.

I never really considered the possibility of being hit in the eye because for so many years before I had my cataracts done, I wore glasses all the time. Live and learn.

Ouch Michelle! Eye stuff can be nasty. Glad you're ok.
When DD2 was an infant she managed to scratch DHs cornea with her nail. Not only did he look like he'd been boxing with Tyson he actually cried in agony. It's come back twice as the cells didn't adhere. So deffo glasses. Who'd have thought babies require goggles whilst handling. We've kept the pics it was so unbelievably bad.
Who has been getting stuck in around the garden too! It's that time!

OUCH! So sorry to hear about this Michelle - hope it's feeling better this morning. Keep us updated (and get to the doctors!)

(Judy, that sounds gruesome. Hope you regularly remind your daughter about it and make her feel suitably guilty!!)
