Blessed freezing though.
Skies now look like black velvet and stars like diamonds.
Hark at me - thinking I am bloody Wordsworth ! As if I would know a host of golden daffodils if they bit me me on the derriere .

Re: Current Conditions - Live Reports

Weather opp ont moor lovely. It may be time to frighten the cows in the field, thats by putting on my shorts, poor things. Archie will not be pleased this afternoon as I feel it will be too hot for him in ths car, I will be going to a couple of places where he cannot come in. If I had the van back it is no problem as its dark and cool in the back and the side windows are tinted, but he comes first,as always.

Re: Current Conditions - Live Reports

Cumbrian midges love me.
Lavender oil does not deter them - a friend suggested it did.
I am bitten half to beggary & smell like Grannys knicker drawer .

Re: Current Conditions - Live Reports

tea tree oil .. and if you google it .. they say that avon body lotion so soft works as well ...

Tips for repelling midges


* Eat loads of garlic. The smell oozes out of your pores and they hate it!

* Cover up, if you can. I get very overheated, so covering up is not an option for me. But if you can, do. Out walking the other day I saw hiker in a BOILERSUIT! He was wearing hiking boots and a rucksack, so I do not think he was a plumber. It was obvious he was attempting to ward off the sun and the insects. I'd die of heat exhaustion in a boiler suit, not to mention the risible stares I'd get (not that I care)...

* It is possible to buy midge nets which you wear over a sun hat. They drape onto your shoulders and prevent midges biting your face and head.

* Talking of faces and heads - I've found rubbing some tea tree oil through your hair and round the scalp line down to your jaw really helps. They just do not like the smell of it. I don't know why, but they don't.

* Another essential oil they hate is bog myrtle. Traditionally Highlanders in Scotland tied bunches of bog myrtle around their ankles to fend off midges (which are particularly vicious as I mentioned above). These days we have essential oils, so it is not necessary to use the actual plant. Unfortunately bog myrtle can be toxic if applied to your skin, so instead, put a few drops on your clothing (it won't stain).

* There's a particular Eau de Cologne called 4711. Get it. Midges hate it. Believe me, they utterly LOATHE it! In fact 4711 comes in not only EDT form, but also soap, shower gel, talcum powder, cooling stick and body spray, so layer these products before you go out to a midge infested place. Spray the body spray into your hair. Spray it onto the picnic mat, or sprinkle talc. I tried this the other day and the midges were completely disgusted with me! Unfortunately I didn't have the body spray and they bit my face and head. Apply one of the products at regular intervals during your excursion.

* Another product they hate is Avon Skin So Soft, dry oil spray Woodland Fresh (the green one).

* If you are sitting around reading or having a picnic, or generally trying to chill it is totally impossible if you have to spend the whole time fending off the midges. No fun at all. Been there done that, got the tee shirt, as they say! Under these circumstances I advise burning joss sticks. The smellier and smokier the better. They absolutely HATE smoke.

* Sit in the sun. Midges hate the sun and they hate the wind, so...

* Fan yourself. The midges will think it's wind and will keep away.
