Sounds like you need to invest in a few big cans of Raid or something, I keep one in every room for emergencies and you will soon learn to deal with the beasties, they are part and parcel of everyday life and I was the biggest insect phobic wimp ever.

Thanks for the comments on the blogs guys!!

Yeah I thought cricket at first, but everyone else who saw them said cockroaches or weta, so... anyway the bug brigade are coming this week to blast them out I think I have gotten rid of the last one this morning, I don't like to kill them so have been saving them, but I do have a raid automatic dispenser and one to hand at all times, for the fly's and moths mainly!

I will link the blog to my profile, thanks for the tip Bevs!

Hi Rick. Sorry I'm on limited internet access so am missing a lot of these posts and only half replying.

I clicked the link to your wordless blog but it said it had been removed. Let me know when you've got one sorted as I'd love to read it

Yeah I started one and then realised it would involve a fair amount of work plus I wanted to start a facebook one for all my family!

Once we've told all our friends and family I'm going to start one on facebook... and then link to it!

I hope your blisters are healing!!
