Red mites and clear drains

Horrible, itchy little things, mites!

We’ve managed to keep on top of the mite problem before.  But this year, they’ve beaten us.  We emptied the shed and sprayed it with Net-Tex Total Mite Kill, then dusted the girls with mite powder.  It seemed to have no affect at all.

So the wooden shed had to go.  For a few years, we’ve been saving Argos vouchers (OH has been given them at work, for good sales figures, etc) so we spent the lot on a plastic shed.  It was delivered this morning, can’t wait to assemble it.

Neighbour HAD rung the council, she just didn’t bother to let us know what was happening.  She seemed a bit embarassed, turns out it wasn’t our fault, or the other neighbour’s.  It was rubbish that had found it way down the storm drain on the road, then collected in the shared drain and blocked near her house.  Felt like saying ‘ner ner ner ner ner’.  But I didn’t, lol.
