Let me start at the beginning. I had been cleaning the inserts from my range hood which are now a bit singed. I was pouring boiling water over them and the fat was coming out quite nicely.
DH bought in a can of highly flammable de-greasing spray. See where this is going? It was working so brilliantly and the fat was literally running out. Then I made a huge mistake.
I picked one of these to have a little scrub.
It took about twenty minutes to arrive which was a good thing since the water submersion was the best thing for me.
My arm which copped the worst was dressed and the next day I had an appointment here.
I go back tomorrow for fresh dressings and then again early next week. So what's the damage?
First and second degree burns which should heal quite fast with silver dressings. One patch near my elbow with a patch of skin missing.
My eyelashes are a third of the length they were, my eyebrows have short hairs and I have no hair on my upper lip.
My hair burnt off all around the edges of my face.
The tip of my nose is feeling sun burnt.
I'm thanking God for the fact that it could have been so much worse. I'm one very, very lucky person!
I did get a bonus, I got to visit the Ikea store near the burns unit and found some bargains. I thought this would make a great table cloth.
This one excited me, I first saw it on a quilt here so I bought eleven meters, enough for a backing. It was such a good price at $3.99 meter.
Pardon me if I don't blog for a little bit or answer emails. It's taken me a long time to write this post.
DH is on holidays so I'm being well looked after. I'll hopefully be able to catch up soon.
