No, not ouch… more ow.. OW…OW OW OW!!!!!
I am an idiot! Officially. Of course I do know really that if I take a baking tray out of the Aga, then it will remain hot for some time. So why did I try to pick up my tray of biscuits with my bare hands not more than 5 minutes after it came out of the oven?
Ben leapt out of the way as the tray (plus biscuits) crashed to the floor …. crumbs everywhere … I made a wild dash for the sink and spent the rest of the evening with my poor sore paws clutching a bag of frozen peas. This morning my fingers are very red, with some blisters, so no knitting for me at present. (Although I did manage a little gentle stitching).
And the batch of little bunnies I’m making for the Nostalgic Mix Fair in Totnes next month will have to wait a while for my blisters to heal. Mind you – they do say that every cloud has a silver lining, and once Ben had recovered from the shock of the tray crashing to the floor, he did a very good job of hoovering up all the smashed biscuits!!
