Random cows

March 23, 2013

This morning we drove to the shops. As we turned onto the 4 lane highway just by our house, a cow stepped onto the road.  It was a large cow with huge horns and it just appeared from what I can only think is a drainage ditch between the highway and the buildings.  Right behind it was another, and another, and by the time I’d lost sight in the rearview mirror there were about 7, just starting to spread their way across the road.  I don’t believe that cows are revered here in the way that they are in India, so there will undoubtedly be some people enjoying fresh steak tonight.

We proceeded on with a sorry absence of random animal appearances to the bakers. It’s a very good baker and earlier this week I discovered that they sell Chelsea Buns. They also have brioche. I’m very happy.

The Pakistani parliament has been dissolved and there will be elections in May.  Given that the history of the election process has been turbulent to say the least there’s a chance that, at times, until the new government is elected we may not be able to get to the shops.  I’ve stocked up on Chelsea Buns.

This morning we asked H to read a story to J.  He chose “The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly” and it went along the lines of “There was an old lady who swallowed a fly; she’s dead of course”.  I take it that that’s the abridged version.
