Hay there


Them in back’s what we call Les Pyrénées around here.

I’m a bit scratchy-eyed from hay-fever so little news to report. I would like someone to send me some Aerogard as personal fly-repellant doesn’t seem to be easily available here.

Back to frappent des mouches.


  1. Are you allowed to send aerosol cans via the post these days? If they have Avon in France you can get something from them called 'Skin So Soft'. It's supposed to smell foresty I think but an interesting side effect is that it repels mozzies.

  2. It's flies rather than mozzies that are the issue. DEET in mozzie spray doesn't work on most flies, so a different or secondary chemical is required.
