We were visiting friends down the street. The boys took their scooters and went on ahead, while a friend and I were following. It's a steep street and Son #2 lost control of his speeding scooter and came off it, hitting the kerb spectacularly.
Thankfully he was wearing a helmet. He's grazed all of his nose, his hands and knuckles and both his knees. The poor thing is our worst patient at the best of times, so the animalistic bellows emanating from him were 10 decibels louder than normal.
When we came home, I tore into the individual plaster samples which I was meant to pass onto friends and used them on #2 Son. (Sorry Soup!) The no-name placebo plasters that I usually use weren't going to cut it this time. The Elastoplast Heavy Fabric Waterproof plasters have done the trick. The ones on his knees are still intact, although the one near his thumb is just starting to peel off in one corner. But it will be time to change them soon anyway.

This blog post was actually meant to remind you that the competition for the $150 gift voucher ends tonight but now we've had a legit reason to use the plasters, I can tell you that they do the job.
If you haven't already entered the comp, just follow the link here for your chance to win. Jason will be choosing the winner.
*Soup have kindly organised $150 worth of Elastoplast products to be donated to a local non-profit community group of my choice (our local Scouts group). Thanks Soup and Elastoplast!
