Glass

Yesterday Jacob broke a glass, luckily he was not hurt and I swept up every shard or so I thought.

I've just pulled a .5cm shard out of my heel. I was twisting to step over the baby gate into the kitchen so it went in at strange angle and took me ten minutes and a pair of tweezers to remove. I will now resweeep the floor in case there are any more.

OW...ow, ow, ow!

I'm glad you were able to get it out, glass is damn slippery when it's covered in blood (yes, I speak from experience, something similar happened to me once).

I once had to get some glass removed from my foot it was kind of hook shaped and they needed to put something on it that drew a bit out so the nurse could grab a bit.

A good idea is to wet newspaper and wipe it over the floor - it picks up the glass that you can't see
