Bees, Broken Glass and Bin Day

It happened so quickly… the bee flew in through the conservatory window whilst I was on a work call. I ran out of the conservatory into the garden and then into the dining room to find my net that I usually use to catch flies.

As I was about to walk back into the conservatory (still talking on the phone), I noticed that the bee 🐝 was behind one of the closed doors so I opened the door. The stuff leaning against the door fell on the glass picture frame that I’d left there and it smashed the glass.

I finished my call, sorted out the clutter behind the door and swept the glass to one-side. The frame was already broken around the outside so it wasn’t such a big deal. I managed to save the painting which was a gift. I securely wrapped up the glass and threw it away. Oh, and the bee had flown away by then.

I forgot that I’d left the window open and another one came in which I caught with the net this time. It was so busy at work today and I felt exhausted by 6.30pm.

Why is it that at that point you are faced with a messy kitchen and dinner to cook? I encouraged my daughter to help me prepare dinner and I showed her how to make mash and vegetables to go with yesterday’s left over roast beef. Being the school holidays she had a bit of time and she helped me clean up in the kitchen as well.

I also made spaghetti bolognese for whoever wanted it and there’s enough for tomorrow (that’ll give me a day off from cooking).

I still had to do some more work this evening; it was quite calming working in the conservatory with a small table lamp and listening to tranquil music. At 10pm when I eventually finished, I forgot that I hadn’t actually wheeled the bins round the back ready for the morning. It’s never-ending! Got that done quickly and sat down to relax.

I’m not sure why at my age I still jump out of my skin when I hear that buzzing from bees and wasps. Like yesterday though, the sequence of events led me to clear the clutter lurking behind the conservatory door.

Until tomorrow…

  1. Well, I suppose there is a positive spin there.
