Tomorrow these two geriatric cuckoos will fly south and should be in our abode, InsyaAllah on Friday the 13th!!!
It will be back to braving mad KL traffic for the spouse's twice weekly visits to Tung Shin Hospital (Chinese Traditional Medicine).
We shall re-commence our relationship with our crazy and stupid and stubborn cats - Comot, Rusty and Socks. Hope they forgive us our absence,
We shall have our routine of Mus popping in after work for a little chin-wag and for his brother-in-law's teh tarik. My sister can look forward to us waiting at her door, mengendeng (mooching) for lunch.
We can look forward to academic and mind-boggling conversations and frolics with my sister's grand-children, all 10 of them - but not all at the same time - oh no!!
Of course we expect to be plagued by the second generation adults especially Maria, who uses the pretext of dealing with our administrative matters just for a spot of Uncle Iain's KL-famous teh-tarik. There's also Hannah who drops in for a chit-chat about the trials and tribulations of doing law at UM. But I also suspect (a prima facie case) that she loves her Uncle's version of cappucino coffee.
Then there will be the Rainbow Band kids (they're all over 16 now) from Singapore. Lely and Ruqxana have already made a booking for 4/5 June. They're very considerate - giving us sufficient time to get over the jet lag. (Oh no, not them again!!). Din, the other one in KL, comes for cupboard love but he sometimes acts as a minder for the Dynamic Duo.
Good-bye No. 43 and Leicester.
|My room will be bereft - of my mess!|
|Our dear, dear Jack and his seven cats. Take care and do try to behave.|
|The most imaginative of Leicester's beggars.|
|The indefatigable dandelion - my role model.|
|Shy Ladybird - my best spring picture|
|Victoria Park. How I will miss you!|
