We got up at 5.30 this morning to take Sarah and the Bearded One to the airport. They are on their way to Delhi for a three week adventure in India. One week doing the tourist stuff, one week in a mountain retreat and the final week working at an elephant sanctuary. I’m quite envious.
We dropped them at departures and then Paul took control of the Ute, a macho beast of a vehicle. We are not too familiar with the city roads so I did wonder if we might spend the rest of the day trying to find our way home but it was a doddle, even more so after I figured out how to switch the sat nav on.
So we now have full custody of Buddy for three weeks. Sarah left me with last minute instructions. “Don’t let him drink wine, don’t give him ice, don't forget he's vegan so strictly no pork sausages ...” Buddy and me are going to be just fine (I won't put any ice in his whiskey).
