The spot on my forehead :-)

Any of you who have seen me in the last week may have noticed that I've got a big spot on my forehead. Well so many people have asked me about it (and I've been so touched by everyones concern for my well being!) that I thought it might be worth clearing up what happened here. The bottom line is that I haven't been assaulted by Catrina or anything like that, but at about two o'clock in the morning a week last Monday I was woken up with a mosquito buzzing in my ear. When I woke up in the morning I had about five bites on my forehead which developed into the lovely spot I've now got.

The worst bit was when ITV came to film Ben's celebration event last Thursday and wanted to interview me. It's the first time in my life I've ever considered wearing makeup and they didn't have a makeup person with them! I don't know if they used the interview I did (has anyone seen the programme as we don't get Meridian) but I'm sure if they did use it all anyone will notice is my spot :-)

So now you know!

They didn't show Ben's celebration on the Friday news programme, but it may have been on over the weekend.

Or maybe your spot showed up so badly they dropped the whole feature! ;-)
