Sis in Law is in the UK and has been reunited with her son, the 22 year old dreaded nephew, dreaded because he has extremely long dreads. Nephew thought he was meeting his mate's mother at the Heathrow. Instead his own mother turned up. They both cried for five minutes. He is such a mummy's boy.
Ok, this is not how it was. It was telephone calls, texts and emails but indulge me.
Uncle Andrew and Uncle R stop Homesick stop Send money for air fare home stop Dreaded Nephew stop.
R became stressed while I remained practical. R wanted to buy the ticket from here. By them buying it over there, it was $400 cheaper. Flight Centre is sorting it out. It was a compromise. I reckon I could have gotten it cheaper. No matter, he is on the same flight home as his mother and her friend, via Seoul.
I wondered how many years it will take him to pay us back, but then I learnt he is due a £2,000 tax refund.
What an adventure he has had, from Thailand to floods in Hmong villages in Vietnam, to Helsinki, to Glasgow where he stayed and worked for a year and saw plenty, including visits to the Continent and now in London, where it is costing him more to live than he thought.
Haha, R's credit card is getting the bash, not mine. Well done me.
