It has been a bad few days for hands although, I’m pleased to say, not mine or Jane’s. Back at work today, I discovered a colleague had suffered a deep cut while racking up some server equipment last week. Meanwhile, tonight, we’re hosting a friend who slipped with a kitchen knife at the weekend and sliced some nerves and even a tendon. She had repair surgery today and we’re looking after her in case there are any unexpected consequences of the operation or anaesthetic.
It all makes me even more keen to treat my hands, with which I draw, paint, play music and type my blog posts, with ample care.
