"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

A Bit Of A Do…

Our roof terrace was packed away in readiness for the monsoon some months ago.

The whole area has effectively been a “no-go zone” since June.
But last week Shaji and Anu spent many hours rescuing it from nature’s annual attack.

And yesterday a team of party co-ordinators spent hours arranging lights, a sound-system
and even what looks to be a small throne.

My loyal staff and kind friends feel such a major birthday can not pass uncelebrated.

Somewhat to my surprise, I appear to have reached the big six..

    • When first informed of the celebration they had in mind, my initial response was “Is it too late for me to make a quick getaway?!”
