It is that time of the year again when they are here. It was after lunch, when I am usually exhausted after cooking and eating (yes even eating can be tiring) and so I retire to my bed: just for an hour. I even set my timer for an hour because there is a danger that I will collapse into infinity and not awake until three hours later.
I settled quite comfortably, my feline Tabby laying at my side, also having a midday sleep and then the noise began. How can anyone begin to cut their hedges after lunch. It was a constant buzzing sound of an electric cutter, so I thought. Now and again it stopped and then began again. I opened my eyes, but was too tired to have a look through the curtains.
And then I saw it. I believe it was a monster bee, or could it have been a hornet? It seemed to be black and did not have a striped pullover. It was also quite blurred. It was then I decided to put my glasses on to get a better picture. Whatever it was, it flew past and settled on a picture frame. It disappeared behind the frame (still buzzing) but eventually returned, flew in the direction of the window, and then there was silence. Luckily I sleep with the window open at lunch time and whatever it was departed.
I just wish I had taken a photo, but I was too tired. There are certain things I am prone to at certain times. And then my alarm went off. I am also prone to alarms.
