Owwwwwwwwwww


I don't know how but I've hurt my wrist.

My right wrist too :(

So I can't

hand sew
machine sew
crochet
knit
cut out
or even use the computer easily - the mouse hurts and typing hurts too.

(and I had commissions that needed to be finished this week)

Aaaarrrrrrggggggggggghhhhh!

and then there's all that lovely housework I so desperately wanted to do.................oh woe is me!

Poor lucy, you are going to miss out on all that cleaning . I'll pop right over and have a whip through for you.
How on earth are you going to cope with no sewing at all?
You need a gocco!

How are you going to survive???

trashalou said...

LOCKET!!!!!! Right. I'll do a quick whip round A.R.S.E. we will have that housework sorted out in no time!

Bugger about the sewing though!

nicolette said...

Poor you, not being able to clean! Arggg!

Take care, you can always cuddle fabrics and yarn!

dottycookie said...

Oh no! No ironing even? I trust you can use the oher hand to hold a cup of tea though.

Get better soon - and I hope you can rest it!

French Knots said...

What a bugger! But I'm sure you can you drink wine with your other hand?!?
Could the Ladybirds do a 'how to clean the house' badge?

Katy said...

how'd you manage that? You poor thing!!!
I bet you're gutted you can't iron. What a shame...terrible news ;)

Cele said...

Oh poor you. Hope your wrist recovers quickly. How frustrating about the house work lol.

Gina said...

Oh no! That's terrible news about the housework!
Make sure you rest it well - it could be a repetitive strain injury... and drink wine... through a straw without lifting the glass if necessary!

wonderwoman said...

oh no, thats awful, what a horrible thing to happen - as far as crafts go that is - as for the housework, well it's such a shame! if i lived nearer i would come and give you a hand.
hope it all settles down soon.

wonderwoman said...

Simone said...

Poor you! It is probably repetitive strain injury with all the sewing you do! You will have to read Dorothy's books instead and get the little lockets to turn the pages for you!

lucykate crafts... said...

oh no!, poor you, can you still eat chocolate though?!!

Rosie said...

Oh you poor duck, chocolate and wine are the best things for damaged wrists. As for the cleaning... well you must be kicking yourself for having to miss out on it!
Rosie

Busters Mom said...

Oh my. Get the little lockets to do your house cleaning. Take the adivse of the others and sit back and have a glass of wine.

Feel better soon.

periwinkle said...

oh dear, you will have to get the little lockets to do the housework for you :-). Hope it gets better soon

dottydesigns said...

hope your wrist gets better soon, no crafting, what a nightmare!! x

anne bebbington said...

Oh Lucy - I do hope it improves soon - wish I was nearer I could help you with your stitching deadlines

silverpebble said...

Mrs Locket, I prescribe rapid administration of Mr Wine and and his close acquaintance, Mr Choc, given twice hourly, by Mr Locket if necessary. This should ensure a speedy (and cheery) recovery via subtle anaesthesia (ie drunkenness) and release of choccy endorphins. Nice!!!!

Lesley said...

It looks every bit as bad as it sounded on the phone. I'm so sorry to hear you won't be able to do the housework...and when you enjoy it so much too....

Looks like reading and eating chocolate are in order then :)

Hope the naughty wrist gets better soon or you won't be able to open any presents on Monday!

xxx

p.s. you are required to stay at home on Monday morning by the way - postie is on his way :)

Sal said...

I'd string it out for as long as you can..get the housework done for you ;-)
(Hope it gets better soon though)

Josie said...

I can totally sympathise, six years ago I severed a tendon in my ring finger of my right hand (moral - don't leave sharp kitchen knives in washing up bowl!!)so after an emergency operation, I had a splint for a month, get washed,get dressed-hubby enjoyed helping with that!,not use knife and fork,going to the bathroom!!!, but at the end of it I was very good on the keyboard with my left hand and even managed a signature when shopping that no-one even questioned! hope you recover soon!

JuliaB said...

RSI from all those quilts you've been sewing!! You'll have to put your feet up and relax a while with a nice cup of tea and a box of choccies!

Leanne said...

Oh poor you ...no wonder you had a blow out it's all that house work you do you need to stop that straight away. My elderly mum broke her wrist and I thought we might have to have her put down after a week it nearly drove her mad not being able to do any think. How you going with the pulling up of the knickers LOL.

Jenny said...

Oh dear! I hope you are on the mend soon-at least all that lovely housework will still be there when your wrist is better!!Take Care

est said...

ouch! it looks kinda serious. a good rest is a must for your mighty hands to recover soon. you can use the idle time to make list of stuff to do . take care

marit said...

Poor Lucy!I'm with the others- a nice cup of tea or a glass of wine, some chocolate and a pile of books;-) The little Lockets (not to mention Mr.Locket!) will surely be able to cope with the housework!
Take care, get well soon.

julie said...

Oh bad luck Lucy! I hope that it heals quickly so you can get back to lots of crafty fun (forget the housework!). Lots of resting it and chocolate should speed things up x

April said...

Hope you feel better soon

April xx

Karol-Ann said...

I do hope you feel better soon and that the rest of the Lockets are looking after you!

Jane said...

Poor you Lucy, hope your wrist soon feels better and every one else chips in to help out with the house work. Sounds like a jolly good idea plenty of chocolate, wine or tea and lots of rest. Jane x

monkee maker said...

You're going to go mad - MAD I TELL YOU - not being able to do all that stuff! .... especially the housework, natch ....

Hope it's better soon.

:)

Rachael Rabbit said...

oh no - poor you - I hope it gets better soon ... my cure for everything seems to be hot bath, warm socks and an early to bed!

Annie said...

So sorry to hear the sad news . . . oh, what to do . . . btw I'd missed a few posts and I think you are probably due for a big rest anyway. You have been VERY busy. Rest Up.

Rachelmp said...

Oh Lucy! I hope you are feeling a bit better now. Trust that you can use your good hand to flick through magazines and books for inspriation..

Chloe said...

Gosh, I would have been upset by not being able to do the housework too. How awful for you ;)

I hope it gets better very soon!

Vale said...

monda-loves said...

I'm sorry to hear you have a poorly hand/wrist. At least you can internet surf with your left hand without too much trouble.

Have you tried an ibuprofen gel?

Sarahs Home said...

Hi Lucy, hope that your wrist is getting better. I did receive your text, I will get back to you soon.

the vicious chicken said...

Oh Lucy, poor you! That looks nasty :o( I hope it's feeling better by now... although not quite better enough for you to have to tackle any housework, obviously ;o)

Seriously though, I hope you are OK and that sewing withdrawal hasn't set in too fiercely. Take care of yourself,
VCxx

Flibbertygibbet said...

Commiserations - do take care of yourself as I had wrist problems last December which still flare up and they play havoc with crafting!!

monkee maker said...

Belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I meant to drop by yesterday to shout that .... well it would have been just 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' then, but I was knee deep in clack-o-meters and computer viruses :(

I hope you had a smashing day with plenty of cake - and wine, natch - and I look forward to seeing the photos of all the goodies you've received.

:)

ps. Hope you wrist didn't make pressie unwrapping impossible!
