day 212 day of owch!

right heres where the blog was almost halted for a while due to injury! and i still have the scars!basically this is why i shouldn't cook ever ever ever!
i was tasting some cooked syrup and some dripped off the spoon, now the idiot in me suddenly thought, quick catch it don't make a mess, which is very dumb as the syrup was boiling hot!and burnt 3 holes into my hands, now the pain came over in slow motion so i tried to wipe it, spreading the hot further and then finally hit the tap and the cold beautiful water.well after a good few hours of cooling, i realised i had really done a bad burn. across my right (drawing hand) palm too so closing my hand was a no no.it was horrendously painful and took a month to heal up, with creams and plasters and it hurt like hell.don't try to catch hot syrup!!!!!!!!so here is my left handed scrawl as i sat with my hand ina jug of water.doh!

day 204:

i was curious about the compare the market meercat soft toys being given out, so much so, i wanted some insurance to get one :P however thats a bit extreme so i instead had a looksie on ebay and mother of god how expensive are the little critters!£83.52 one was going for!and the others were all similar! :/ won't be getting one of them then!which is a shame as they are sooo cute! anyho i drew a meercat who looks a bit dubious about being sold on ebay!
