Day 1 of being home alone, midday report:
- Turns out there was a fruit fly infestation in the cupboard next to the oven where the potatoes are usually kept. After a long battle, I must have killed about 40 of them, but a few stragglers still remain among the corpses of their kin. Hopefully the fly killer now in the air will kill the rest off, but I suspect some will survive.
- A couple of medium-sized spiders have made themselves at home by the front door. They weren't there yesterday of course, they waited until I was the only person around to deal with them before making themselves known.
- Opened the windows upstair to let some fresh air in before I went downstairs. Would have been nice, if not for the fact the "fresh air" contained the undeniable scent of manure. Country air must have blown this way while the Fruit Fly War was taking place.
