Finding wasp maggots writhing in your tomato?
Knowing that you have just eaten a small slice of said tomato, of course!
Finding that the same small wasps seem to have deposited eggs in ALL the lemons on the tree?
Having not bought lemons, for your drinks and your cooking, because you knew you had some on the tree!
Seeing, often, tripping about the local Supermarket, the Dapper, Trim, Immaculately dressed, Small but perfectly formed Surgeon, who supposedly performed your ‘urgent’ surgery after a whole year’s delay? The year’s wait for this extensive repair, caused fourfold the damage initially done, therefore causing the surgery to become far more extensive to repair.
Having to resist rushing up to this man, grabbing my offensive deformity, and shaking it at him, and asking him is he proud of “his” handiwork? I could one day snap and resort to actual Assault. However I am sure it was the students who did the work of surgical ‘wonder’, and it was only in his name. Little wonder he no longer does ‘Public Surgery’. I sure hope he makes a better job for his private patients.
Having your GOM going blind, by degrees, and admitting he is now not seeing colours?
Why, having him INSIST on driving when I can, and do have a license! I admit I am not a very confident driver, & tend to use caution, but I can still see perfectly well, colours included, and I do know how to drive!
Having a very unwell GOM?
Having a very unwell GOM who flatly refuses to go to a Medical Centre, because our own Docs are on holiday! (Well deserved holiday I might add, having had some devastating conditions themselves.)
Because I realise I need to balance some of the horrible things in the first half of this post
What could be better than….
Suddenly feeling the urge to do some sewing?
Actually beginning to do some! Which, I confess, because of reasons, I have not yet begun.
Having all your family that is possible, gathered at your Festive Meal Table for the Christmas Feast.
The answer to this is Nothing could be better, except perhaps having absent members present.
Having wonderful friends?
Having wonderful Friends who gave me a replacement Topsy Turvy Tomato!
Having a dear little Small Grandson come to visit?
Having a dear little SG willing to pose with the TT Tomato! Woe betide any wasps!
Being Retired, and able to please yourself if you want to read all day?
Being able to do it all again the next day, if you so choose!
Having several cool days, with gentle rainfall?
Having an efficient Aircon, that can deal with the high humidity!
Having interesting Blog friends to read, all over the Globe?
Having the time to get around them all!!
As I said Elsewhere, “After last year’s bag of dud nuts, there must be something good coming for all of us”! Happy 2010!
For my gorgeous generous Daughter.
