camel dishI thought today I’d give you some highlights from our day:

  • This afternoon we bought a Dyson Animal handheld vacuum, because I was tired of dragging out the big vacuum to clean under the dining table after dinner each night. OK, I lie. I let it pile up and then vacuum it on Saturdays. If the doorbell rings on a Friday, I just refuse to let them in. Now, at least, you’ll be able to visit me any day you wish!
  • During our shopping expedition, we also purchased a new Philips iron. Well, Julian purchased a new Philips iron. I told him there was no point in me choosing it. I don’t use it enough! He posted something to that affect on Facebook and a host of men put their hands up to being “chief iron man” in their household too.
  • We went out for dinner at our favourite restaurant tonight and on the specials menu was braised camel scotch. I’m not really sure where in Tasmania you get camels (and whose responsible for feeding them scotch!), but I can tell you, I definitely wasn’t about to try it. I assume – like seagulls, snake and pigeon – it tastes like chicken? Julian went the beef scotch fillet instead. Wise choice.

What about you? Have you tried camel? Or something even more… interesting?

      Oh wow, you two are very adventurous food-wise, Caroline. There was crocodile on the menu in Burnie once and Julian tried that. But that’s about the extent of it for us! 🙂

  2. I’ve never tried Camel either – but I reckon I’d give it a go!

      Would you? Good on you, Catherine. I’m still in two minds…
      The waitress said it’s quite sweet, but very rich. If you ever try it, you’ll have to let us know! 🙂

  3. Kel you cant go wrong with the Dyson Handheld – its been my best ever household appliance for 3 years running – I HEART IT!

      That’s so good to hear, Donna. That gives me more confidence. We’ve just mounted it on the wall ready to use now!
      We love our regular Dyson vacuum and tried the handheld during the holidays and were sold on it instantly! Life is about to get a whole lot easier, I think! 🙂

  4. Oooh, camel sounds good. I’ve had yak cheese and fermented mare’s milk in Mongolia and both were revolting. Not experiences I’d repeat! Jealous of your Dyson…think I might need to invest in one. I’m tired of hauling out the big one for all the crumbs!

      Oh my goodness, they sound… revolting! LOL! I’m not sure I would have been game, Kate. Good on you for trying them!
      And yes, the Dyson is awesome! Loving it!
