Rakes progress


Unlike Sideshow Bob in the Simpsons, standing on a rake really is no laughing matter as I found out last week when I stepped on my own which I’d carelessly discarded.

I compounded the felony by wearing inappropriate footwear. Skechers, although wonderfully comfortable, are no protection against the the sharp spikes of a rake.

Stupidly, my tetanus injections were not up to date. The price of a booster injection is nothing compared to the cost of contracting this terrible disease.

To cap off a wonderful day, I was later stung by a bee.

Allotment gardening is rewarding and great fun but it is quite a dangerous environment and we should all keep the safety of of ourselves and others in mind.
