We were sitting watching Strictly on Saturday night, when I felt a strange tingling sensation on my right foot.

Within a couple of seconds, that changed to a searing sensation of pain.

I looked down to see that I had managed to knock over the freshly-made, boiling-hot, cup of tea that Amelia had just brought in… all over my foot!

“Ow ow ow!” I ripped off my soaking-wet sock, but the pain continued, so I hopped and hobbled as quickly as I could to the downstairs loo and tried to squeeze my size 11 plate into the world’s smallest hand-basin.

“Ow ow ow!” The cold water didn’t seem cold enough to be doing anything. “Quick!” said Mrs M to Amelia, trying to show concern, but  at the same time not take her eyes away from Emma and Anton’s Paso: “Quick, get a bag of frozen peas out of the freezer!”

We didn’t have any frozen peas, so I had to make do with Curly Fries.

It  wasn’t helping much and after a short while the fries started to warm up, so they went back into the freezer and out came a bag of Chicken Fillets.  Surprisingly, frozen chicken fillets don’t mold themselves around the toes that well!

I spent the remainder of Saturday evening with my foot in the washing-up bowl filled with cold water.

This time, I remembered to take a photo.  I’m sure you’re all pleased about that!


  1. Wow!
    With your record you best not try anything to adventurous in the bedroom. I would hate to think what the next photo would be of.
    Nuf of that. I hope it gets better soon as that is the foot that gets you to and from work quickly every day.😋

  2. Well yes…ouch indeed … I wish I could unsee that photo!!

  3. Ooh – that looks proper nasty. No peas? Well, it serves you right then. Who doesn’t have frozen peas in their freezer?

  4. I don’t even have a freezer – but I am sorry that you have been hurt again. Should you go to a Pharmacy to get it checked over?

    • No need, TA, as the current Mrs Masher is a doctor.
      Well, as near as: she’s never missed an episode of Holby City.
      I am going to work with my toe wrapped in clingfilm… which is the done thing, apparently.

      • That made me laugh, thanks! I am a great advocate of using cling film on injuries, it comes off easier than sticking plaster too.
