In our hands...
Have you ever noticed how in old fashioned detective stories (particularly in the stories of that great doyenne of crime, Agatha Christie) crimes are often solved based on the condition of a person's hands? Huh, our determined detective reveals, it is not the heiress who has been killed but the servant girl - those hands have been working hard.
Today I really noticed the condition of my hands:
the abrasions say I have been scrubbing cloth nappies in cold weather;
the nick on my thumb says I lost concentration when cutting up salad;
and the scrapes on my fingers say I should have stopped grating that carrot before I did!
Ginger's tell their own story too: dirt under the nails that no amount of scrubbing will get out - she has been gardening!
So, what do your hands say about you?
