It's a little chilly here, but the sun is shining. I have a couple of Windows open to let a bit of air in. Not because it's warm, but because we've had to keep the windows closed for so long that I thought it would be nice to let a bit of air find its way in. Kero's enjoying it. He's right now sitting on my bed with his nose pointed directly at the open window. I think Spring has arrived here in Wales! And, I would have taken my camera with me to grab some Spring photos for those of you still buried in snow... Just to show you it really will arrive eventually... But I forgot the camera, and only registered that I'd forgotten it when I went to grab it from my jacket pocket when we were on the path, and realized I hadn't actually put it in there (it was sitting on my chest of drawers in my bedroom, where I'd put it down to look for my mobile phone). Oops! Well, better luck next time!
Today would be one of those blissful days where all seems right with the world... Had I not tried to cut the tip of my thumb off. Well, actually, I didn't "try" to do it, but I very nearly did do it. What happened was that I was eating an apple, and Gwydion - noticing that I was hanging around in the kitchen - started weaking at me. Knowing what he wanted (because he always wants food) I figured I'd share my apple with him. Now, I hadn't bothered to peel and slice the apple, figuring I'd just eat it as it was, and stop when I got to the core, but I obviously needed to cut some off of it if I was going to give Gwydion some. So, I picked up a knife and went to cut a slice out of the apple to give to Gwydion. Unfortunately, I cut a slice out of my finger instead. I thought I'd barely caught it, since it wasn't really hurting that much at first, but I'm thinking now that the reason it didn't hurt much at first was that I numbed it with the cold water I immediately shoved my hand under. Why do I think this? Well, because it started to hurt a LOT after my hand warmed back up, and it definately hurts now! Also, Kelly had a look at it, and he says I've cut a little chunk out of my thumb near the tip. Still... I managed to avoid getting any blood on the apple - I'm assuming I put the apple down quick enough that it was out of harm's way - and Gwydion and I both really enjoyed the apple! Just looking on the bright side... Finding the positive in the situation and all that! ;)
