The water pump was replaced this week after it blew on our last camping trip
I am being challenged by the Compassion bloggers. Wow.

This video made me happy today

A stunning piece of art - he manages to make the whole thing look like a model set in a studio. Love the helicopter behaving like a dragonfly.

Rolling out Single Dad Week v 2.0

Felicity has just left for the airport to fly back to England for her Granny's funeral.

So it's Single Dad Week all over again at our house. Monday is a national holiday here so I am taking the girls camping in the desert; ruined Greco-Roman cities, Pharaonic temples, sand dunes and steaks cooked on an open fire.

See you all when I get back!

Wolf Pigeons and Shark Falcons. Yes!

Wait for the Junior R&D Engineer's piece. It's perfect.
