What the Kings brought me

Me and the cruise ship Ventura in the harbour at Santa Cruz de La Palma
My present from the Kings

On Jan 6th the kings ride in on their camels and bring presents to baby Jesus and good Spanish children. Bad children get coal. I must have been very good; look at the boat they brought me!

(Actually it’s the cruise ship, Ventura. I was the guide for an excursion). I tweeted about it, and my favourite comment came from my friend Nikki, “Those poor camels carrying that!”

I also got a parcel with no message containing this mug. I love it! It’s so perfect for me that I thought I must have ordered it myself and forgotten, but it’s actually from friends.

You have been warned.

Unfortunately the kings also brought me a lurgy. Luckily I’ve already sorted out most of the paperwork and the Dropbox problem, but posting will be sparse for a few days.

  1. But I might not kill them. I might make them a killer instead. Or just make them incontinent and flatulent. I can think of at least one politician who’d be mortified if I made him poor. There are so many fascinating possibilities here!
