I ended up in A&E today after I disturbed a wasps nest on the allottment on Thursday evening. There was no one else in that part of the site but I did bump into my allotment neighbour on the way out. I think if I was allergic to wasp stings I would probably be dead from anaphalactic shock, I don't think my neighbour would have found me in time. I was stung at least 12 times that I can count, have huge swellings and blisters but live to tell the tale.
And there was my mum worrying all those years I travelled across Africa that I would get trampled by elephants or held up by bandits ( little does she know!) . And it was strawberry picking on my allotment that has come closest to seeing me off. Fate - when your number is up, its up, not my time this week
