Happy New Year & Seamus

I hope you all had a good Christmas and I would like to wish you all a happy new Year.

My Christmas did not quite go as planned.

As the situation in Kenya kicked off we were contracted in to a secure and protect some holiday makers and then to assist with relief efforts.  This second phase is ensuring that the aids gets to those who need it and to  persuade those of a naughty nature who might be tempted to half inch anything not to.

We have done some serious pursuading.

Unfortunately I was injured in this operation.  Injury is an occupational hazard, but this was more serious.

In short I was bitten on the arse by a rabid dog.  His name was Seamus.  Note the use of psat tense.  I was minding my own business when this little brown dog wandered over to me and then without warning sunk his gnashers into my rump.

It appears his former owner was an Irishman from Belfast and somehow Seamus had inherited his masters dislike for the British and in particualr members of my regiment.

Not content with injuring Normans rump he bit my right hand and arm.  I regret that all the bites are seriously gunky and very painful.

    Oh dear!

    There’s spmething slightly ironic here: you walk away unscathed from dodgy encounters across that continent (and others) then get laid up by a mangy dog.

    Happy New Year anyway. I hope your fee goes some way towards making up for your discomfort.
