Get it in perspective

After a disturbed night feeling less than sparkling went to a very good church service. Several baptisms and generally happy morning. However, spirits descended sharply on return home. Inspiration suddenly strikes. This is a good chance to get on with some weeding.

Stuck my ungloved (idiot) hand into large tub of lavender and was stung by a wasp. Gasping from the pain tried to knock the little b..... off my left index finger and the vicious evil little beast stung me again.

I know we are all God's creatures, but I can't help wondering what He/She was thinking when the wasp was created.

There is little doubt that we all have our place in the scheme of things, and at last I'm beginning to discover mine.

The babies in church this morning are just starting on their voyage of discovery, while I am
getting daily nearer to the end of mine yet I am living proof that contrary to popular belief age does not bring wisdom, only more questions.

What a load of piffle!

Time for this baggy-eyed crone to get some much-needed rest.

I'm afraid I'll almost certainly be back!



  1. I am in the process of reading through your entries since you started your blog. You are very brave in the way you are starting to grow life with all sorts of new things, but I wanted to chip in a bit on the way - hope that is OK. I've only been stung once by a wasp and was relieved to know I survived! As I'm terribly allergic to all sorts of things I had always feared the worst. BTW _ I'm the Dalamory blogger!

  2. Welcome to my blog - please keep reading, and commenting! - hopefully I will improve both content and tecnique as time goes on.
    As to wasps, evil little monsters, I am trying very hard not to get better acquainted with them.
    Glad you survived your experience.
