A few days away

by NobblySan

MrsN, the hounds, and myself have just come back from a few days away in North Wales.

Anglesey to be precise.

Or, to be even more preciserer, a small collection of holiday cottages just outside Llangaffo.

It was cracking! We had great weather, and the location of the cottage was perfect, with plenty of space for the dogs to run about.

We would normally take a longer holiday in summer, but what with all the restrictions around at the moment, and the fact that UK accommodation is as rare as rocking horse shit, we were bloody lucky to sneak in on an airbnb booking for these 3 nights.

Last Monday, we climbed up Holyhead Mountain, and then headed over to South Stack lighthouse. I’ve spent lots of time in Anglesey over the years, but never did this particular walk. It was quite spectacular in places, with great views from the top over the island towards Snowdonia in the distance.

If anyone is interested, here are some pics . . .

Me, anywhere three inches outside my front door

I don’t know what it is this year but I’ve got sixteen fucking bites from my belly down to my ankles. They don’t just itch, they itch with a nuclear intensity that kills souls and I can’t fall asleep at night without ice packs on each of them to dull the desire to tear the flesh from my bones.

Some of them have morphed into red patches of raised pustules weeping fluid that I have to bandage before I leave the house lest onlookers accuse me of leprosy or share their COVID with me via these handy entry points. I’ve bought more athletic tape and sterile gauze this spring than all other springs combined. At one point, the pustules blended with April’s contusion in a dermatological fault line to create an Uber-sore.

This has been going on since May. Every fucking night and day since May. Yes, I wear DEET. Yes, I avoid foliage. Yes, I’m pretty sure it’s some kind of spider-of-Satan but I’m at a loss as to how to avoid the little bastards considering I’m a landscape designer.

This is one bite–ONE.
