My hand is still hurting from the surgery last Monday. Yesterday the Nurse suggested that I apply cold to my hand to help the pain and reduce the swelling. He advised putting ice cubes in a bag and holding them for 10 minutes.
I decided that holding a tub of Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream in my hand would have the same effect and that I’d actually enjoy it at the same time!
I explained this to my Mum (who called at the same time as the ice cream eating) and she said it was the best excuse she’d ever heard for eating ice cream!
The diet will have to start again tomorrow…
