Our House - Racquet Versus Mosquito.

Not for the faint -hearted! Strong language!

Only a few of my friends know that my husband has not been at all well for the last few weeks.  In fact, he has not been well for a few months but his health has deteriorated drastically over recent weeks.  However, all is not lost.  He is undergoing treatment for what has already transpired  and all being well, when the 'detectives' find what else is going on in that body of his, we will know what the next move is.  Suffice to say, dialysis is on the cards.

All drama has its humorous moments and as many of you will already know,  especially in our house! My daughter has been spending a great deal of time at home since my husband's health took a bad turn.  Well, you can imagine:

We get alot of mosquitoes. No amount of spray, coils, citronella or other products seem to keep them at bay.  We have what looks like a tennis racquet which is used to zap them.  This is charged so when the little  blighters are zapped, a flash of blue light appears together with a cracking sound  and you hear them leave this earth.

Heard in the Lake household yesterday evening:

A zap!

Daughter: 'There you go mother fucker!'
Me: 'Oh! Really?'

Three more zaps one after the other.

Daughter: 'Aha!'
Me: 'It had brothers and sisters?"

I love it when she comes home!

    1. You know I started the Our House series in 2007! I can't believe it! Nine years!

  2. I'm glad your husband is getting better. Illness is a terrible thing to endure.

    I love the mosquito zappers.

    1. It is awful but all being well, we will get there. The most important thing at this stage is for him to stay positive.

  3. Is that really your house? It's amazing!
    I hope your husband gets plenty of help with his illness. It must be difficult for you all.

    1. No not at all! I 'pinched' it from Strange Houses on Google in 2007!

      It is difficult but he is getting help and as I said above, he has to stay positive - as the entire family has to.

  4. Yes, mosquitoes are really annoying. I hope your husband heals well, and quickly. You have a lovely blog and your header is gorgeous. Warm greetings and best wishes from Montreal, Canada. Hugs.

    1. Linda, thank you for visiting my blog. Thank you too for taking the time to comment on my husband's health - looks like it's going to be a long haul but we are positive. My header is a photo I took from a friend's deck on the north coast of Trinidad.
      Warm wishes from Trinidad, West Indies. Hope to see you again.

  5. I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your header on our new site directory?
