WHAT A REFRESHING CHANGE – OR PERHAPS NOT:

Sometimes on holiday if I forget to treat my legs with insect repellent I would return to the hotel to find that they are covered in red blotches! These were cause by mosquitoes secretly landing on my skin, puncturing it and sucking blood out of the veins. This is what they live on and it’s a scrumptious meal for them. Apart from the itching and the chance of getting malaria it’s an annoyance that they have such skill to get away with it without my noticing. But now I have the chance to get my own back! The E.U. in its infinite wisdom have now allowed human food to contain insects – dead of course. The new ruling came into force on the 1st January this year. I can’t wait to open my first can to taste how delicious they are and with a bit of luck there may even be some maggots thrown in as well!
