Did I mention I hate the cold?

Hit my toe on my hair dryer yesterday (not that stupid sounding, I'd left it lying on the floor). Thought 'ouch'. Then 'really ouch' as I looked down to see it'd swollen to twice the size it had been before, was bright red, very hot, throbbing like hell and very tender to the touch.

Decided I'd given the bone a knock and maybe chipped it (I've done it before and it isn't exactly a big deal), I padded it up and got on with things. I was surprised today that it was only mildly uncomfortable to walk on and the boots didn't hurt that much.

Realised when I got home the reason for this - my toes were so cold it was virtually impossible to feel anything. Discovered this was indeed the case because when I warmed up in the shower the bashed one is now hurting quite a bit again.

I really could do with circulation that works. I really could do without my fingers getting so cold that they really hurt if I'm outside for my than two seconds, even if I'm wearing gloves. You know how it is if you hold something really cold and you can literally feel the bone ache? It's kind of like that but worse.

*sigh* Can it be summer now? I can't be doing with this any more.

On the bright side I have enough car savvy (hence the icon) to know when something's wrong. Thought the steering felt a little light. I know the roads aren't at their grippiest right now but still, this just wasn't right. Turns out my steering wheel was slightly loose. The nut probably came a bit loose a while ago dad reckons but the bump of having to drive up the kerb to get passed the fallen digger the other day likely gave it enough knock to make the steering wheel wobble. So we took it apart, tightened it up and all fixed now.
