domestic day, when something extraudinary happened
pottering continued sorting out my garden and starting new vegie plantings, had a napin the afternoon then started cooking as we had invited guests to dinner....a good thing about living here is we often have interesting people at the hotel, everyone is living at a relaxed pace and so they have time to come for dinner if I am in the cooking mood and invite them....
Yes a camel....I am still stunned
Praveen and I have had a joke going for years now....I want a camel, will he buy my one?.....first he used to say "Yes dear, when we live in India"...then when I finally arrived, he said "Yes dear, when I find camel parking".....I was away at work on tour when I rang him one evening and he was in the centre of the Camel Fair, that did make me suspicious as he hates the dust and crowds of the Fair....then the last few days he kept telling me there was a camel.
Well there is!!
and he is now sitting in my courtyard.
His name is Baba and I have to admit I think it was love at first site....he is so cuddley [stinky as well but Praveen said he would wash him today]
Could well be right....
I have a camel- can you believe it?
