Angry Blew up my glue gun!!!

I literally blew up the gun and almost landed in hospital! I always keep my woodburner an arms length away from where I'm working for safety reasons. Anyway picture this: I put the glue gun down and fiddled with a clip not realising that I had previously moved the wood burner closer to me...oh oh. Guess where the cord from the glue gun was resting - yep right on the woodburner. First it melted the plastic coating on the cord then all hell broke loose! The gun exploded with a huge boom and there were blue and red sparks everywhere - not good Anyway I jumped up like crazy, proceeded to bash my foot on the chair and then managed to break a toe - ouch! (bare feet are not a good idea). When I limped over and turned off the power switch I knocked the woodburner from the metal tray I keep it on and so I now have a burn mark on my bench top! Lastly I knocked over a glass ornament which smashed and I managed to step on it - yep...blood everywhere. But that's not all - guess who walked in and saw it all happen....yep DH I had to sit there for 15 minutes crying with my sore toe and bleeding to death while he lectured me on safety in the house. And the moral of the story...If you're going to blow things up do it when DH isn't home!! And that was my very favourite glue gun too.
My toe is all swollen and black but I managed to get all the glass out of my foot!!
Cheers Linda

OMGoodness!!! Bless your heart! I hope that you are okay & don't find any more glass in your foot! I know how getting on your foot can make you bleed....like there is no end to the blood supply!! Sounds just like something my DH would do....like I did it on purpose because I had nothing better to do I hope that tomorrow is a great day for you and take care of that toe!

Wow, talk about a rough day! I hope you're ok and and you heal quickly. I had to tape down my wood burner after a while because it would fall on the floor constantly and after a couple of carpet burns, dh said to! I just let a little length on it to move around the table but if it were to fall it would just hang and not fall on the floor.

Thanks for your sympathy - I need it. Anyway my DH brought me a pair of steel capped construction boots to wear cos he reckons that bow making is a dangerous business....nice look...not!

I'm sorry!! That's awful. I do stuff like that too. I'm a major klutz. That sounds like something my husband would do too,with the lecturing, as if we didn't know any better and actually did it on purpose!! Better luck next time with bowmaking.
