This week I've been so consumed by and in awe of the madness surrounding Oprah's visit, that I completely forget to vent my frustration on the most annoying of subjects: the mosquito.
The mosquito is no stranger to summers in Boston but ever since moving to Australia I seem to be a magnet for these little guys. I'm not just talking about a bite here or there, I mean I'm actually covered in massive welts, the most recent one a huge lump on my forehead - not a good look. I've tried vitamins and repellent but I think I'm going to have to resort to buying a mosquito net for our room.
Despite the constant itching there is a positive spin to this, and I seem to have become more interesting to children. On the bus today the child behind me, blurted out "mummy, what are all those red bumps on that lady?" as I tried to slide down further into the seat and hide. Hopefully I'm not the only one with such a strong hatred towards this insect but if anyone has any home remedies please feel free to share before I have to battle the mosquito beasts in Bali!
