Be careful - it's a jungle out there...................
Around ten days ago I decided to have breakfast at the tree house. It was a lovely morning. Camera by my side, I sat down to enjoy my coffee, cereal and toast.
I had only been there a short while when I was aware of buzzing. I noticed the start of a wasp nest beneath the acer tree. I picked up my camera, took a photograph, and decided to make a hasty exit. I was totally unaware that a wasp had followed me, and suddenly felt a sharp pain on my inner elbow. Before I reached the house, my arm had started to swell, and had turned red around the elbow area. I have never been stung before, so was totally unaware that I am in fact allergic to wasp stings. I should have realised because our son is also allergic and a few years ago ended up in hospital. Anyway to cut a long story short, I am now fine. Poppi has a severe allergy to nuts so I had a medicine chest full of treatments. After ten days my arm is back to its normal size....hooray.
The wasp nest has now been removed.
Thinking back, the day I had breakfast at the tree house was Friday 13th ....................I wonder !!
