I have had to stop all activities that involve fine motor movement of the right hand this week, including typing! I was working my way rapidly through 3 buckets of broad beans one day - breaking the pod with a twist, popping the beans out and into a bowl and flicking the bean case into a bin. Great rhythm but somewhere in the third bucket I became aware of a level of numbness in my thumb. I had stirred up an old RSI problem which took two days to stop hurting in the thumb area but still tingles in the lower arm muscles. It was painful just to chop onions for a few days!
Who would know broad beans were dangerous?
Unfortunately there are 4 more buckets on beans to do. Even my husband is begging for a change. Fear not darling - the peas are ready to harvest!
While needing a rest it was my birthday so we went over to the North Norfolk coast road and for coffee and cake at the Yurt restaurant at Thornham and on to Brancaster for a paddle.
My favourite advert has just appeared on the TV. The Great British Bakeoff does Sound of Music! Ace!
I have invented a dish for lunch.
Must stop typing as the arm is tingling again!
