Day 89: Dear Family, merry xmas from sunny miserable India
India is baking hot, my stomach is fine, but the situation with the dogs is pretty miserable.
For this Christmas, in keeping with the spirit of my Year To Help, I’ve decided to forgo ALL Christmas pressies – no need to buy me that Mercedes, Nic.
Instead can you please make a little donation either to my blog or to this crazy but unbelievable brilliant charity I’m working with out here called the ARK.
And here is the bad news:
I’m going to buy all YOUR Christmas pressies from animal charity shops.
I don’t even know where one is. This means the selection will be slender and almost certainly crap. Nic, I know you’ve been wanting to read that old Len Deighton thriller. Pa, you’ll look good in a second-hand nylon dress and Ma, you’ll finally get the plastic colander you’ve always wanted.
It’s for a good cause and I know you are happy to be involved.
See you soon
P.S. Nic, please warn the boys that their pressies may break.
