I wishI knew how insects keep finding their way into my living room. It's most offputting. I mean, you know how I don't like insects of the yellow-and-black-stripey-and-stingy variety, right? When it's a wasp I just kill the bastard, but today I was at the computer when I heard a buzzing, looked down and there was a bumblebee flailing around in front of the fireplace, with the cat just moving in to have a good sniff. (Note to cat: don't sniff things that can sting you. We go to the vet enough as it is.)
A bumblebee? I can't kill a bumblebee! We're losing enough of them as it is. So I done being very brave and trapped it in a glass and took it outside. And I'm still shaking. (Sometimes great bravery requires great sacrifice.) But I've got to block up whatever vent is letting these things in – I can't be going through this all summer.
