I've enjoyed a recurring and frequent thought over the last few weeks; no more damn nits!!
I wasn't being smug, I just felt relieved we wouldn't be taking the plague of year 5 with us!
i thought way too soon!!
After a sweaty day doing more 'settling' jobs I joined my kid in a bracing swim off the pontoon.
As I raked my fingernails through my hair I considered the heat or some shampoo residue to be the cause.
Later after we showered I noticed Tabitha's neck was livid with scratch marks and I was horrified when I investigated further and found her crawling with nits!!!!!!
Immediately I knew I must have them too!!
What the bloody hell was I to do without an emergency dash to Boots or a phalanx of local mamas to donate hoarded supplies of chemical warfare?!!!
I remembered stowing the nitty gritty comb with the tea tree oil during the unpacking never expecting to need them tho!
Thank god I did!
De-lousing yourself and your child in a campsite shower stall isn't something I'd recommend to be perfectly honest!
However I will admit it was quite satisfying seeing legions of the suckers fall prey to the sweep of the comb!
I sincerely hope that's done it and they are eradicated for good now.
I'm sure the crawling scalp is completely psychosomatic........
