Fate is not an eagle it creeps like a rat…

We’re moving house. Nightmare. My job was to clear out the garage. Mainly because the garage has been home to some not so cuddly, small, furry creatures. I swaggered bravely to the back of the garage and used a broom handle to gingerly poke a pile of blankets.

The little rastards have eaten their way through half a yoga mat, a garden umbrella and my treasured golf bag which was decorated with badges from all the clubs in Africa I had played at. Gutted, but relieved that the rotten rodents seem to have flown the nest. But that means they are somewhere else.. Where?!

Indonesia beckons. I leave on Monday for a week of meetings and talks re a possible new scratch card contract and the phone software, is gathering momentum.

Interesting facts you might not know about Indonesia:

Indonesia is the fourth largest country of the world, in terms of population.

Indonesia is counted amongst the largest producers of nutmeg in the world.

The national motto of Indonesia is ‘Unity in Diversity’.

Indonesia is the largest archipelago the world, comprising of five main islands – Java, Sumatra, Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Irian Jaya.

Indonesia boasts of thousands of islands, out of which around six thousand are inhabited.

Indonesia is home to some of the rarest creatures in the world, including miniature deer, fish that climb trees to catch insects and spiders that catch and devour small birds in giant webs.

I think given the choice, I prefer the mat eating rat!
