Hello, Liz and Sinsull. . . saw your messages last night, but was still feeling kind of shaky (shock, said the medics) so I apologise for not having manifested my presence then. Thanks for the useful advice; I just didn't stop to think that I shouldn't be putting a bright coloured thing on my head yesterday morning. . . will stick to brown/khaki/navy blue or, why not, army camouflage garments from now on, promise! I also now have a new (in date!) anti-venom kit and supply of anti-histamine pills should I get zapped again. The rest of you who are allergic to insect stings, I hope you'll learn from my misfortune! It's a jungle out there!
