cleanskies

insect hell

Today's attempt to work from home was rather interrupted when I discovered that ivy had invaded the computer room/comics library/walk-in wardrobe, and brought thousands of sticky icky aphids with itself. I now know more about removing aphids from stuff than I ever thought I'd need to know. Thankfully it didn't hit a very cluttered area ... just a plastic owl, some pot plants, some badges, some bangles from my teenage years (which are looking more and more like something they'd dig up on Time Team), a blue glass decanter, a joke-shop gold laurel wreath, and er, some other stuff.

Now I just have to figure out what to do with the net curtains and cycling gloves which I wore to avoid having to feel the little f*ckers ooze through my fingers as I yanked the ivy off the wall (currently out in the back garden). I don't even know how to wash a net curtain. Hot? Anyone? Help?
