As may be seen from this here scene
I have returned from where I’ve been,
And back to being gleefully
To where from home I see the sea.

 It’s back to cellphone shots, I fear,
My cameras are both not here –
In drama of departing day
I left them both in the UK!

 We both were in an awful state –
We found our luggage overweight;
In thinking what to leave behind,
The cameras went out of mind.

 I think I miss the Nikon most –
But also Canon video;
But they’ve been sent on in the post;
I hope quite soon that up they show.

 Can you believe such folly crass?
Could it the fault of age have been
To make me such an utter ass?
No!  I am only seventeen!*

 *Well, you know … er …  backwards-like!

  1. Oh no! I normally keep all my cameras and expensive electronics in my hand luggage.

    Good advice from Tilly, Col. Hope it won’t be long before they arrive.


  3. Glad you’re home safely, Col 🙂 Hope the hi-tech gadgets turn up with all speed.

      Thanks. And so, fervently, do I. I have faith in the Royal Mail (although a Royal FeMail did fail to get a signature for a registered parcel sent to me) but far less in the SA Postal Disservice.

    If I were you, I’d get to the post office everyday and harass them for your parcels. I know what the SA PO is like. When I was pregnant with Spud, the Hub went on a UK business trip and bought enough baby stuff for three babies. He posted a humungous box home and it never arrived. He went to the PO to collect another parcel and spotted the big one in a corner at the back. We are convinced we’d never have got it if he hadn’t seen it, because it had been there a couple of weeks at least.
