Sitting in my bed in my house in Rwanda, having a hot flush and pondering the cakes I am going to make for future events.

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

I am in Egypt during the early days of WWI. Not only do we have to worry about the war but there is also an underground independence movement causing some issues.

On the HMS Terror trapped for two years in Arctic ocean ice and some monstrous murderous creature that must be a yeti has just chased a sailor all around the ship's spars and rigging and then around some icebergs! The sailor didn't get eaten ... this time.
