It has, so far, been one of those 'And Duncan's horses did eat themselves' weeks i.e a bit weird. Aside from the Dracula BSB attack I sustained in the wee small hours of Monday morning, and a tiny Year 7 declaring very loudly that I looked like I 'ought to live in a bungalow' (????!!!), today, as I was marching across town to meet with my 4 p.m tutoring appointment, I suddenly became aware that something was resting on my upper lip. I could spy it with the corner of my downturned eye.
Do you know what it was? No, of course you don't. I'll tell you. It was a small bumblebee. I was walking across town with a bumblebee perched on my upper lip.
'Oh, for Heaven's sake,' I said, as I removed bumblebee from my person and placed it 'pon the ground. I am beginning to think I may be stuck in a Kafka drama and will wake up tomorrow metamorphosed into a giant insect. I shall be cross if I do.
And then there was the Tweet vis á vis the Fairy Mouse. This, of course, is a nice weird thing and raised £30 for the Nepalese Earthquake Fund! Yes! Lovely Alison donated a quite unexpected and very generous amount in return for one of my little handmade meeces! What a lovely person she is! And here is Fairy Mouse safely arrived in her new home...
As you can see, she matches her environment very well indeed. I think she shall be very happy and I hope she brings Alison and her friends and family some Summer smiles.
The weather has been weird, too. Lovely weekend - all sunny and gorgeousness- and then I got fair drownded walking home from work yesterday AND I am pretty certain I saw hailstones as I was scuttling along and peering out from 'neath the hood of my parka coat. And the wind! Don't get me started on the wind.
And I also trapped my finger in the photocopier at work. That hurt, but I was very good and didn't swear. And I managed to ruin Andy's i-pad charger by running over it with the new Hoover. Just shows how effective the new machine is because it shredded the lead in a matter of seconds like a strimmer shredding grass. The old vacuum would have run scared at the sight of an i-pad lead.
Weird week. And only Wednesday.
