Do you ever have one of those days.
I woke with a shock during a terrible dream. But……
The sun cameup brightly, the garden smelt wonderful and everything was right with the world.
Then we received news of a terrible tragedy in our community… a Mother, her two children and another child killed in a road accident locally.
The children were students at my daughters school, the Mum was their secretary. Rachael was distraught, so I thought I would visit and we'd have a cup of coffee.
ZZZZZZZZZ I hear a noise….. Crash…… ZZZZZZZZ I walked out the front door and 8 men were on our property lopping trees.
I could see by their vehicles that they were from the Electricity company and when I asked them why they were doing it without prior notice, I big bear of a man laughed at me and said they didn't have to give us notice. "This is fire prevention" he said. "Don't you care about bush fires"
After 10 minutes or so of extreme damage, I bought out my camera which caused a huge stir. I photographed people, number plates, phone Nos on the side of trucks only to be chased by this big bear man with profanities and threats of bashing me and smashing my camera.
I ran down my drive.
As an amateur news hound I had the photos ready in an instant to send to the company.
Within an hour a boss was around and dismayed at the photographs, so lets see if it goes further…
Then, I've been on a rampage after the grey pigeon who is insisting that he kill my new baby white doves…. the only thing I have to scare him away is the swimming pool leaf lifter… it's 8 ft long and I thresh around in the air to hit him…..so I'm glad you don't have a camera on that.
Now I have to wait till night and lock him in the cage.
I did quilt, for about 5 hours in the wee hours. The quilting on the Rhino is every 1/16th inch, so I'm going to have to quilt the background just as intensively…
Oh dear, maybe it was because I ate hot vindaloo curry for breakfast… but then again, it could have been something in the air today.
