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..


If You Can Wait And Not Be Tired By Waiting..

“If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same..”

From “If – ”
(Rudyard Kipling 1895)
