This title was suggested by Janine, who had an accident on Saturday night. While taking two of her kids to a Bonfire Night party, she was hit in the face by a firework. She's still in hospital, but hopes to be out in the next couple of days. She asked me to tell readers of her blog what had happened.
So far she's had five hours of operations on her right eye. Doctors still hope they can save the sight in it. But Janine is taking a typically 'glass half full' attitude towards it: hey, she says, she's still got one eye.
She will resume blogging as soon as she is able.
Thanks to Clive for posting this for me
