Two pieces of very sad news. Firstly, little Pingu died last week - he/ she (never established which it depended on the day and its antics what gender it was!) got bitten by a snake. Yes despite what you read in the guide books they do exist in the Maldives. This was the second instance of a snake in that week. The first one got killed and popped in a jar of formaldehyde to live in the biology department of Addu High School. Well I cried lots and we buried Pingu in Shiji's back garden where he had been living since we got back from Hulhumeedhoo. Definitely very much missed by all.

The second tragedy is that I perched my delicate behind onto my kindle and it broke!!! Incredible I know but there you have it. I was in the middle of two books as well - aaaggghhh. This is why books are so much better than high feluting electronics - they are pretty much indestructable. This disaster prompted me to sally forth into the local library (something i've been meaning to do for ages and not got round to - nothing like incentive to spur you on). Well for 10 rufiyaa - 50p - i can become a member and take out a vast array of books. Some more classical than others. Bee you will be pleased to know they have enough books here to indulge my weakness for time travelling romance to my heart's content!
