Allergy update.

Meep! Just had my allergy tests (& managed to throw up all over the floor in a fit of squeamishness). Apparently I'm very allergic to dust mite - so among other things, I need to put all my furry creatures in the freezer! I'm not sure whether or not this includes the live ones...

The leaflet I got was funny though. It was talking about how you can wash your bed with toxic chemicals or you can vacuum the mattress but the dust mites hang on with each of their ten legs. I was highly amused. Of course, if you take a picture of a dust mite and blow it up to 300 x magnification, you get some sort of horrible science-fiction monster. I'm glad they're too small to see normally.
