Princess and the Pea

As a child, did you ever read the book, The Princess and the Pea?

I loved that book but little did I know that it would still be relevant to me thirty years on!

And why?   As some of you may be aware (and suffering along with me), it's summer here in Australia and a couple of days ago it reached 44 degrees  - now that's hot, damn hot!  So by the time I walked home from work (yes walked!), it was a 20 minute walk in 38 degrees heat. And by the time I arrived home, I was beat.  So as soon as I got through the door, I dumped my stuff and collapsed on the bed.  But wait, it wasn't comfortable.  No, there was something under me, something on the bed.  So I scramble to my side to determine what the monstrosity was on the bed and there it was, my pea, a little green bead.

Now, I don't know where the pea, oops, I mean bead came from as I don't ever recall seeing it before, it didn't come from any clothing or accessories or anything else that I could think of - it just magically appeared.... so I shall call it my Princess and the Pea bead!
