A sign from the skies

Twas the end of Term 1 last week and today is the start of schools hols. Boy, I had forgotten what a terror two boys at home are like. At 11am on Day One, Number One declares he's bored! So we head out to get supplies (activity books, art and craft) and stop at the park on the way back.

While the boys run around, I seat myself on a bench underneath a big tree, and notice this fellow.

Bright blue iridescent wings! He (or she) goes about burrowing into the ground and then emerging and burrowing in again. Google says it's a blue flower wasp.

I forget however, that parking oneself (or one's car) underneath a tree, leaves one exposed to a potentially bad situation. Suddenly, I felt the unmistakable splat of bird poop on me. After cleaning myself up, I tell Hubs, who proceeds to tell me it's supposed to be a good thing!

He says:

From WOFS.com

"When Bird Droppings Land On Your Head
Many people believe this to be a major sign of wealth coming from heaven. Hence, although, it is really yucky and a major inconvenience, when something like this happens to you, take comfort in the fact that this is described as good luck being just around the corner! In fact, most things associated with birds tend to spell good fortune, such as when birds fly to your home and start making nests in and around your house."

Considering I had a generous dose with my hair, clothes and bag recipients of this 'good fortune', I should be due a windfall! Shall wait with bated breath, and if found to be true, will willingly park myself beneath trees all day to improve  my fortune.
