angle grinders

I had a busy box-making morning yesterday...followed by a phone call from John to say he was on his way to A & E because the blade on his angle grinder had snapped and cut his arm...I quickly did all my parcels and dropped them to the post office on the way to the hospital (luckily they are both within easy walking distance!) and sat with him whilst he waited....he's OK, quite a few steri-strips are holding him together underneath a BIG bandage, and there will be a scar...he's just happy that he didn't have the tattoo that he'd planned to have years ago because the cut would have ruined it!

Gasp - glad to hear he is okay, sounds pretty scary to me. Hope he heals up nice and quick.

Glad to hear he is OK, I hope he is coming up with a better story for how he got his scar, ninja attack, shark bite...
