Yogurt, Aloe Vera or Cling Film?

Following on from my last post, you will be pleased to hear that Messy Church went very well indeed.
Unfortunately, I burnt myself on the oven and so next time will be wearing something similar to the picture opposite.
Lots of advice as to what I should do to minimise the after effects of the burn. It was run under freezing cold water for two lots of 5 minutes, it had a pack of frozen onions placed on it until I started to smell like a burger bar. Butter and yogurt were suggested!!!! Things were starting to resemble the beginnings of a night at the curry house (onions, yogurt, butter......!!)
A friend kindly went home to cut the branches off her Aloe Vera plant so I could rub the sap into the burn. Apparently, her plant did not sacrifice itself in vain, this seemed to work.
Someone else suggested I wrap the burn in cling film. But I have to say that just reminded me of the clip in the Full Monty and so I declined that advice.
You will be pleased to know the burn has gone down quite a bit. No blistering, although the heat from my arm could give the oven a run for it's money!!

Fish Fingers, Rats and Migraines

Went to bed last night and was obviously thinking of/worrying about cooking for Messy Church tonight. Theme of Loaves and Fishes, so fish fingers!
Had various vivid dreams, the worst being that during the cooking of fish fingers for Messy Church, the Environmental Health Officer turned up and found rats in the kitchen. I believe I cried out in my sleep. Well, wouldn't you?
The ensuing migraine is to remind me of that nightmare.
Sure tonight will go smoothly?!?!?!?!
