Of midges or men?

Usually on holiday in sunny climes it is Husband the mozzies love; Corsican bugs preferred me.

We left Corsica yesterday morning at 10 and I still have red itchy lumps developing all over. I look as if I have the dreaded lurgy.

The only thing I can think is that our last lying-in-the-sun holiday was taken before menopause: have my hormones changed so much that I am now attractive, not to men, but to midges?

Will it be mice next?

Glad to have you back, g'friend! I'm afraid those skeeters love me, too, and when we were at the lake in June I came away in absolute pain from the bites! Even though I sprayed myself and my clothes with that horrid-smelling "Deep Woods" stuff. And I'm always telling Lorne to close the screen door to keep the bugs out. He thought I was being ridiculous until I showed him my 20+ red itchy bumps! Now he's more careful.

I reckon the mozzies would love you here Liz.

Mine have just started to stop itching. I sympathise with you, leslie.

I had better keep away then, Linda!
