Two mistakes

Seen earlier today inside a teaching establishment in London ...

... and why Dawn doesn't let me do a lot of DIY. We've been building a huge decking area in the back garden for a week now (evenings after work). On the last nail - the very last bloody nail, mind you - I missed and whacked my thumb instead.

Ouch. It's very sore.

Don't you also think it's a bit strange to have an exam lasting 46 minutes ?

Oh that is hee-larious...the sign, that is, not your poor, poor thumb. Ow-wee!

Jed - That hadn't even occured to me ... perhaps there were 46 questions lasting a minute each? Weird ...

Willow - My whole thumb is now as black as a coal miner's underpants. No more gardening for me for a day or two (Quiet but nonetheless joyous 'Yes!')

ROFLMAO
Dawn makes a valid point as well you know. You are such a talented sculpture for example - but build flat pack ikea stuff - and wallop you get it so so wrong.
Sorry to hear about your pain matey - get well soon x

Me - Yup ... I am a DIY failure. In my case it stands for Dangerously Inept Yokel.

or Damage Increases Yearly.

Or Dawn Is Yearning (for a more practical husband).

Obviously NOT an English exam!

As for the thumb...try gardening, I think a green thumb is much more becoming than a purple one....

Stevyn Colgan said...

Hi Lavinia - Strangely enough, my thumb may be the colour of a plum but it doesn't hurt very much ... so it was back to working on the decking area today. Luckily, no mishaps today ... yet.

Glad to hear you've thumbed your nose at the pain!

Thank you!

I'm laughing and wincing. This post is sending me on an emotional rollercoaster.

Wouldn't it be great if a theme park somewhere actually made an emotional rollercoaster? On the 'highs' there'd be sunshine and pictures of smiling babies. You'd pass through water tanks of dolphins and be showered with the smell of flowers. Then, on the 'lows' they could spray you with effluent and play Chris de Burgh over the speakers.
