This morning, we came into the kitchen to find the floor crawling with maggots.
I mean, really. Maggots? Have you ever heard of anything so disgusting? Where did they come from? Why were they there? Who has maggots in their kitchen?! We've certainly had a few flies to contend with lately, but nothing I would think would cause such an outbreak.
They didn't seem to be coming from any one direction and we couldn't find their source. They weren't particularly concentrated in any zone or in the bin or behind the fridge. They were all just wafting aimlessly around in different directions.
I vacuumed them up and vacuumed them up and still more kept appearing. I would vacuum one patch of floor, turn to do another and then turn back again and more were there. It was like they were popping out of thin air.
Aside from the excitement of our unwelcome house guests, I think we may have decided on names for both places. We're going with The Headmaster's House (Little House) and The Postmaster's House (Big House). The idea actually came from Dan after I read him the comments from the last post and I love it - it's not too twee, it's a nice play on words and it references the origins of both buildings.
I imagine the Headmaster would be feeling pretty peeved that his house is a fraction the size of the Postmaster's residence, but at least he doesn't have a kitchen full of maggots to contend with.
