Bastards. The lot of you
Actually, thank you all for your constructive advice and pointers. I will ensure that the Landy has a first aid kit installed asap. To include some Loctite 401 and a hair dryer, amongst other things.
Well, you'll be disappointed to learn that I didn't suffer septicaemia, have to lop it off with a pair of bolt cutters (don't put it past me...), drop in to A&E or have it sorted properly.
Being of mixed Celtic heritage I have the fortune of being blessed with the constitution of an Ox, a high pain threshold, and being impervious to rain and cold
Handy with the work I do, but not such a hit with ladies.
The healed/healing digit!
