Thought I ought to tell all the campers about my accident at Glastonbury. I had boiled a pan of water for DD's porridge and my tea, poured hot water into my cup and put it in the drinks holder of my chair (you know the sort), then sat down. It flipped up and managed to spill over both my shoulder and thigh. When I think about it it was a pretty stupid thing to do, but I am thanking God that DD was safely in her pushchair at the time, it was horrible. Nurse reckons I will be scarred for life, it went through lots of layers of skin. Photos on profile.
Didnt leave Glasto early, too much fun for that. It was very sore for a few days but lots better now, three weeks on. I noticed a no hot drinks tag on someone else's chair, after the event, so I guess this happens lots. Funny, I usually find warnings about hot drinks pointless and patronising. I was surprised how much damage a normal cup of tea could cause though, that could happen anywhere. My tea drinking habit has been pretty curtailed ever since.
