Archie dug his toes into the sand, relaxing in his reclining chair.

From the tepee he heard Agnes clattering about. She stumbled out.

‘You said you wanted a holiday with plenty of sun and sand.’ He didn’t open his eyes as she slumped into the chair next to him.

‘Don’t feign innocence. You knew what I meant and you know I hate camping.’

‘This isn’t camping dear, it’s desert glamping.’

Agnes reached over and jerked the catch on his chair. It collapsed in a heap, with Archie sprawled on top of it.

‘Feeling glamorous yet?’ she asked, as Archie spat out a mouthful of sand.
