I had a bit of a fly infestation in my loft. I didn’t notice it before I was putting my Christmas decoration away, but I must admit that I had seen flies around the house and I just couldn’t think where they came from, now I know.
I went finger-shopping for pest-controllers.
The first one Rentokil was so expensive (they wanted £450), I fopped them off with “I will wait until the infestation gets worse”.
A friend of mine said that I should contact the council and get them out. I looked at the council’s website and couldn’t find it, but when I Googled “MK Council Pest Control
” it gave me a link to the “Pest Control” page.
Milton Keynes residents are offered a comprehensive pest control service via our approved vendor SDK Environmental Ltd. To access the service please contact our contractor DialAPest which is part of SDK Environmental and advise them that you are a resident of Milton Keynes. A discounted rate is available for customers in receipt of certain qualifying benefits.
The site specifies the whole price you’ll have to pay, and that’s it. The man came this morning, he was in my house for 5-10 minutes, filled in a worksheet, that I signed, and he got on with it. The only restriction I have is that I am not permitted in my loft for 24 hours. All done for a mere £58.
There is a new buzz word for the English dictionary and it is the most wonderful word and situation in the world.
It is HYGGE.
I went out today and purchased a little book called “HYGGE – Comfort and Food for the Soul” as I just had to see what the unknown author (I can’t find the name anywhere) had to explain what HYGGE is. I had to smile at the cover that used 10-12 word just to try to translate it and 10 more words to define it.
What can I say HYGGE is just that very hyggeligt.
So I can only say to all my friends and followers have a lovely HYGGELIG New Year eve
I am always in two minds what detergent to use to wash ‘hand wash only’ cloth. In Denmark I would purchase a package of soap flakes and dissolve a handful in warm water to wash the item; but time has moved on and I am not in Denmark, and I don’t know if soap flakes are available in UK. I found out they are in all supermarkets.
But anyway; I came across this handy, always available tip of using shampoo instead of the soap flakes. I tried it on one of my scarfs. It was easy and it worked.
