Mosquito miseries

There have been far fewer mosquitoes around in Pessac this year, I think, probably because of the dry spring season and perhaps also because our neighbour cleaned out his pool.

But on Friday evening, on the quays, I felt that tell-tale flutter on the skin of my right arm and gave the mosquito warning, and this morning I have three huge inflamed zones around my elbow. Rubbing in Savlon eased the itching. Today we found some old Apaisyl bite cream and I took my last anti-histamine.
