I'll admit when i moved to Egypt i didnt cry
at leaving behind my family or friends,
but i did shed a tear or two over leaving
behind my pet tortoise, Del-Boy.
But we've been having regular skype chats
where she gives me looks down the web cam a bit like this-
(which translated from tortoise means i miss you mummy)
But now Del-Boy has been on the move and travelled all the way back to the Uk.
I was a little bit mad at Captain Tim for taking
her without making the correct preparations
(ie. a new tortoise house for her to live in)
but on Christmas day i received a wonderful
surprise that he had spent his whole day building Del-Boy a Castle.
isn't it the cutest little thing!
it has little sunflowers painted on it as they are Del-Boys (and my) favourite flower.
There is also a Christmas tree so that Del-Boy can celebrate Christmas,
and a Lemon Tree, so she can sing a song to it.
