Yes, this is really what is on my desk today. (I say today, because I am posting this after midnight and I have not slept yet, so I suppose I should say yesterday - I hope you understand that - I am not sure I do) I have had a small plague of these tiny bees in my craft room over the last week, and have no idea where they are coming from. None of them are very well, and are mostly crawling feebly on the floor. The bigger one in the pot was the one that inflicted painful injury - it stung me. Mean or what? The smaller one was dying on my floor after lunch. If anyone out there is an expert on bees and can give me ideas of how to get rid of them in the house. I am happy to have them outside in the garden where they belong, and where we have planted lots of food plants for them. In the meantime, as I said in my last but one post, crafting is DANGEROUS.
Apart from dying insects, my desk is covered with the debris from a frantic making of Christmas cards for Sarn's Rudolph challenge. I still have to post some of them on the challenge page, but I actually completed 20 in one go, mainly from toppers already made, ready folded cards, and oddments of peeloffs. Hence the huge pile of used and unused peeloffs. I even use the waste bits between the borders, and anything else gets bits punched out to embellish other cards. The cards themselves are mainly hidden but I will post them at intervals later.
Today (Tuesday) has been a bit of a mess. Our big pup suddenly started yelping every time he moved. He could not jump up to his usual comfort place in the evening. Going upstairs was really bad for him. Of course, by the time we had an appointment for the vet, he was moving much better. After an injection and some painkillers for a week, he is better than last night, but still not 100%. He is scared to move much, so will be on very reduced exercise for a while.
Thank you for coming to visit me today (Wednesday), and I must now let you go to visit all the other desks on show over at Julia's. I hope to visit as many of you as possible in return. Have a great week.
I am pleased to report that the anti-inflammatory injection and the painkillers are working for Flash, our big pup (he is just 6 years old. He is trying to run around like a lunatic again, so we shall have a hard time keeping him a little more calm for a few days.
