the family has departed - the parental units and brothers to new brunswick and the sister back to the big apple. the house very clean, apart from the stack of dirty dishes and the pile of skiing equipment, and very quiet. it's like living on my own again, except the fridge has food in it and laundry doesn't cost five quid.
gone the way of the dodo.
