Today’s card is the Ten of Bows with the key word of Responsibility. And so, today my thoughts are racing away with me. Last night, while clearing out a mouse trap, I got hurt by my own stupid fault. I bashed my finger along the foot of the sofa and got a large sliver of wood wedged between my finger nail and nail bed. I thought I had gotten it out but I had not and today, my finger started to complain, swell and go bright red. Having had several toe nails removed, I suspected what was coming and spent most of the morning worrying about it and psyching myself up to go and get the nail & splinter removed.
So, heading for the nearest Minor Injury Hospital, I did just that, calling on the help of my father as you can never tell how long you’ll be in a hospital’s A&E department. Thankfully I didn’t go up to the larger Russells Hall, but to the Princess of Wales in Bromsgrove. I was seen very efficiently and thanks to Phil in the Minor Injury department, my nail has not had to be removed, but my hand is still somewhat numb, I can’t feel that finger and I’ve only just got the use of my middle finger back.
But the responsibility I have had today is of me & my children, to ensure that we’re looked after, that things still get sorted out and that the eldest is collected from school. But I will certainly look forward to my bed tonight!!
