The day of the bee sting a single ant inflicted 6 - SIX - bites on my shoulder. How can something so small cause so much pain? It's taken almost a week for the itch/swelling of all bites and stings to go away.
And then yesterday, while pulling out an old kangaroo apple, I was a bit macho with the pushing and pulling and tore a chest muscle. A bummer, as the willow saplings need to be removed and the pain is too much at the mo.
A warning - never plant willows where you don't want them eventually/permanently. I planted two dozen in the igloo 18 months ago, thinking I'd transfer them later, maybe to create a living fence. Didn't get around to it (of course) and now discover that their roots are way thicker and longer than the sapling trunks.
Moan moan! Pathetic, eh?
