I was awakened by a loud, angry buzzing and opened my eyes to see Manasse chasing a big fat bumble-bee. I picked up a shoe (there's plenty of those lying around) and whacked it. I thought I'd killed it, but when I bent to pick it up and throw it in the bin, it obviously had some life left in it, and it stung me! I hadn't been stung since I was a child. I'd forgotten how much it hurts.

I am also reminded of my honeymoon - I was stung by a MONSTER MUTANT HORNET!! in Thailand ... I was out by the pool, went to get something on my bag it was sat on and literally grabbed hold of the monster.

Mister Jay always tells it: "everyone thought she was being murdered!" apparently I shrieked thus!! And the hotel staff kept apologising to me all the time and brought me a drink too.

So...as a means of blagging drinks of people, would you recommend getting stung? ;-)
