Up early this moning (By my standards..)  A bit before 8:00 am I think. 

 

Might get the grass cut today as at the moment it's actually sunny.

OK. Not even sure if the dreaded 'itch' is definitely down to dust mites, but that idea is firmly lodged in my head now so, the little sods have to go.. whether they're guilty or not..

 

Went out early and ordered a new bed and mattress. Home for a bite then out again for colour cards.  I'm going to start painting the bedroom tomorrow.  Not a big job.. just an average sized room with half the walls taken up with fitted 'robes. So, ceiling, a bit of wall and a little glosswork.  Nothing to a craftsman of my skill...  :rolleyes:

 

Checked with the local council and booked 'bulky waste' removal of the old bed.  £ 16:50.  The bed co. wanted £55.

 

Have also decided that I'll 'hoik' the old bed out well before delivery of the new one and get the bedroom carpet steam cleaned.  It looks spotless and is not remotely worn, but it's only ever been hoovered.  Spare room is available..

 

Mrs Col has had a new duvet and anti allergen mattress cover stashed, still wrapped, brand new, never used in her 'den'.  They will be pressed into service immediately, and the year old pillows are also going.  A pillow costs the same as a bottle of cheap brandy, so I'm not messing about.

 

When that's done, I shall get the soft furnishings in the living room cleaned.

 

I shall prevail!!!  :aggressive:

I’m here again with a question DJ360 don’t know if you have already answered this. Is it possible to suddenly become more sensitive to something that never bothered you before? Or would you have reacted to something new and this made you react to things that were always in your environment? If so quite a scary thought as any one of us could end up with “the itch”.

Blimey Col, this is turning into a very expensive itch.

Have you thought Col., if you do eventually cure your ' itch ' and hopefully you will, you won't have anything to post about. You'll be lost for words !

As far as I can tell, allergies can develop at any time and it's impossible, for now, to predict who will become allergic to what, and when.

This explains it pretty well:

The odd thing for me is that when my allergic reaction was at it's height, I showed no allergy to mites, but weeks later, when things were calming down a bit, I did.

 

Go figure!  As our American cousins say..

Ever considered the possibility that you are allergic to Nottstalgia ?

You know when one of those 'Cruise Missile' type flies get into your house in Summer and you just can't catch the bugger?  "Beerrrzzzz... beerrzzzz. beerrzz....."  There's been one cruising the ground floor all evening, but I resisted using fly spray because it really gets to Mrs Col and I'm not crazy about it mesen.  Anyway..  Mrs Col went to bed so I got the Floret out and stood in the kitchen until the 'Cruise Fly' whizzed past..  then I blasted him with a short burst of Ammo.. just like the Spitfire pilots did in WW2.  It worked!   'Cruise Fly' started to sound like a Lancaster Bomber that had lost one engine..  "Berrzz..ber.. be ber... bes". It would have the odd revival..  " Be be BEERRZZE Ber Beerzzeerr.."  But finally, as all four engines spluttered out,  it sounded like it was buzzing its last.. low down..somewhere in the Dining Room. Then silence.  No doubt the vacuum cleaner will find it.  I suppose that makes me an evil killer.. but I'd rather kill one fly out of zillions for health and hygeine, than kill one Rhino out of a couple of thousand.. just for profit.

Anyway..

First decent day of weather for what seems like years.. and I spent most of it on DIY indoors

Bedroom cleared of all clutter.  Ceiling repainted. Some 'discussion', with Mrs Col as to the new colour for the walls, but in the end I don't really care so long as it's all fresh.

Walls tomorrow.

I shouldn't really have liked your post about the death of a little creature, but I liked the analogy....

I loved the description of your cruise missile fly, DJ, we have had similar experiences with them ourselves. As I have got older I think I have become softer and  can't bear to deliberately hurt any living thing. BUT, flies I detest and they have to go. I go to great lengths in my home to keep things covered, using those little net type umbrellas over food I have prepared for a meal, to keep insects away. If I have as a last resort had to use spray, I track the fly or insect until it drops, and then with one almighty WAP, put the blighter out of its misery. At least I don't make it suffer any longer than possible. :flyswat:

I should point out that spiders, bees, wasps and moths are all 'assisted off the premises' and I find most insects fascinating.  But big buzzy flies either leave quickly, or face the consequences... :crazy:

Nothing worse than a pesky mosquito droning around in the bedroom just after you have put the light off and are trying to get to sleep.

Some of them here are big enough to have landing lights.

Agree with all comments, I too hate all sorts of flies big or tiny. I have to feed 4 dogs and if they don't eat straightaway I have to pick the food up and cover it or else flies lay their eggs and its thrown away, We have mosquito screens up to the windows but they still get in as soon as we open the doors. The other evening I sat outside and finished up with about 7 bites from mosquitoes, at the moment they are still gentile little nips but later on as it gets warmer (its 34now) and more humid we'd better watch out because they come at you like a dive bomber.My husband teases me as nearly always I have the swatter in my hands. I inspect the bedroom every night.
