REALLY AWFUL PHOTO FINISH BUT ON THE WRONG TRACK; AND WHERE WE’VE BEAN.


My cameras, left in U.K.,
And sent on in the post,
Now seemingly have lost their way,
And reached a foreign coast;
The tracking look-up tells that they’ve
Reached ‘land of destination’,
But then reveals an error grave
By any estimation:
In no way have they reached S.A. -
There is a postal failure -
From what the tracking records say
They’re sitting in Australia!

 
*screams, howls, wails, snivelling sobs, teeth-gnashing, foot-stamping and ripping sounds of hair being shredded*

 

 


Today we went to try The Lucky Bean in Assagay, where one can munch light meals and enjoy a pleasant outlook while the kids are kept amused. 

 
There was, indeed, much to amuse them. 

  
One will note that Baby J at nearly six months is progressing nicely, and the active blur you see was the best I could get of R on *bitterly* my cellphone camera.

    Oh no! The best thing to do is harass the post office until you get them.

      Not so easy. Royal Mail have lost track of it, and Australian Mail have no record of it. Things are not looking good. It’s not just the cameras, (bad enough) but also the memories stuck in their little tummies.

    Oh, Col. I’m so sorry. I had an awful feeling… but thought, ‘No, surely not!’ Well, at least the camera is sight-seeing. Pity there is no one to take photo’s of its trip, lol!
