Selected the “best” umbrella from the array of them I have, creating a display in the hall, and stepped out into the heavy rain. PING! One of the spokes (if that’s what it’s called, or even if not) snapped half-off and almost popped my eyeball. Rather than go back indoors and select another umbrella, I decided to try and twist the broken metal and ended up with a twisted, fairly arty, spike which bounced as I walked. Oh well, I thought, a few more careful turns and it should snap off. Oh no, not this tricky testy tosspot! It did snap but then, for some reason the brolly wouldn’t close and then the wind blew it inside out. Just then the bus came and a decision had to be made. Sorry brolly, you lose, it’s the end of the road for you and a lesson to be learned for me. Never trust something, just because it looks like it’s reliable. We are all fallible and flawed. Another lesson may be that, even with a wet, miserable start and technical troubles to the day, both buses came as soon as I arrived at the stops, so every day may not be great but there is something great in every day.
