You know when you do stuff and the instant you do it you know you shouldn’t – well, I bent down to pick up one of the fruits that had fallen – oops! It was just one of things – no real hassle in my case, as my daughter was on hand with a pair of tweezers and quickly pulled the needles from the tips of my fingers, but I can imagine circumstances might be a little different if I had happened to be a little one.
