How are we all out there in the wondrous scary world beyond the screens? Time is ticking along, only 137 days until Christmas [yes I have started, although I think Great-Nephew is going to get his way before December, like in two weeks time, lol].
Well then, lets tell you how things are round here. It has reached that time of year when I seem to become the sushi bar of delicacy to some blood sucking insect. Every day for the past couple of weeks I have woken with a new itch, a new bump and a new red inflamed spot. Up until now they have appeared on my lower leg, and usually the leg snuggled under the duvet rather than the one languishing all exposed. However, now the favoured area seems to be the forearm, of course there are the obligatory ones right where the bra strap sits and one drunken bugger left one on my chin.
Sometimes I look more like a contorting gorilla when the itchiness get too much. Apart from the resultant marks, it does leave me with a feeling that microscopic beings are crawling about my skin, I flinch and stop, waiting for confirmation but no, it is just my trousers tickling a hair or a piece of cotton dangling. What was that? Oh a loose hair falling at my neck.
Might try the diluted listerine on my legs, or the peppermint foot spray, see if that deters them. I am reluctant to use an antihistamine because they have a tendency to put me to sleep and insect repellants tend to just annoy them into finding that one bit of me that missed the daubing, like where the knickers elastic sits.
Hey ho. Monday my Sister and I [shhh she doesn’t know yet] will be damp dusting, vacuuming and airing my bedroom.
August boot strap up-date – Well limited progress has been made. I have caught up with the paperwork, just the copying and distributing to be done, but that requires third party hands. I am cracking on with the crochet and while polishing the family tree branches I discovered the codes for four more death certificates. Even made notes on what to update on my web site.
Now what can I find to ‘watch’ while I crochet this afternoon.
