No flyspray? No worries.

Friday, 3rd December:

Last night, after an epic few hours of emails and organising, I fell into bed with glee. Oh sleep, I bloody love ya!

Until I heard the ominous sporadic buzzing of a dirty big blowfly. What a killjoy for my sleep, and my sanity.

After an unsuccessful bout of towel-swiping that almost took out my whole beauty table, I sulked downstairs in search of flyspray.


Surely I just need some sort of aerosol can, right? Digging through my beauty storage drawers, I pulled out a mini-can of Cedel Hair Spray, and took to the fly. Spray… less buzzing. Spray… slower flying.

Gotcha you little grot!

Peace at last. Another fabulous result? My realisation/reminder that this mini can of Cedel is the perfect purse size for at-work touchups on those hard to hold updo’s.

I popped it in my handbag, and then climbed into bed smiling.

*Only one fly was harmed in the making of this story.
