I'm hot, sticky, and half slept. It's been so hot and humid here this week that I can't sleep. By 3.30am last night I gave up trying and went outside to curl up in one of the garden chairs beside the pond to try and cool down and doze. Hedgehogs are noisy beggars aren't they?....'specially when the moggie decides to play too, it rather scuppered the dozing in the peace and quiet , and it got better when the magpies woke up and annoyed the squirrels in the big birch beside the fence. The blackies got in on the act too and then I felt a stabbing pain in my foot and found one of those d*mned berry bugs had bitten me and my foot is now burning itchy
The house is like a sauna *again* tonight, even the cat is panting I can't wait for that first cool breath of fresh air smell that says 'Autumn'.
Maybe a good thunderstorm would do the trick
Does anyone know where I can get hold of white no-seeum mesh? I've got every window open but I'm fed up with the insect population trying to take over. The 'window mesh' I bought doesn't keep the tiny buggits, like midgies and spiderlings out.
