In school, Rob and the girls have mostly drawn inspiration and learning materials from the culture around us in each moment, but in order that Bella keeps up with the St Christophers Y6 English curriculum, they spent a few weeks this dipping into Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Midsummer Nights Dream, and Romeo and Juliet. On Friday, they performed a great rendition of ‘Double Double Toil and Trouble’
Break time for Bella today constituted coconut tree climbing practice! I’m convinced Agus will get her up the real thing before we are done.
We returned for the afternoon to the BARC dog rescue safehouse where they nurse the animals that are too sick to flourish in their sanctuary (which houses more than 350 animals, many ready waiting to be re-homed).
This visit we were trusted with dog washing, so we started with Daisy who was the most gentle unwanted ex-breeder labrador that you could hope for.
She even stood like a rock while she was vigorously rubbed dry.
Then I got to wash my beloved Lady. When wet and lathered it was apparent that she is still a skinny little thing despite all the best efforts of the staff. They can only feed her up slowly on pumpkin and tiny pieces of meat as she can’t hold down rich food, or too much at a time.
On our way home, Rob met us for dinner at the infamous Famous. It was the very first restaurant we went to in Bali (for a pizza hit!), and has become the most frequent (Bob is there most days!).
