The house feels empty this morning.
For the last 2 weeks, my mum, sister and brother-in-law were with us on a holiday to England. I took time off from work and we did the usual touristy things – London Eye, Mme Tussuad’s, London Zoo, The Aquarium, Thames Cruise and the Sightseeing bus, Trafalgar Square & the National Gallery, Green Park & Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park , the Albert Hall and the Albert Memorial, Oxford Circus and shopping. We also managed a day trip to Windsor Castle.
We ate ice-cream in the rain (as is the traditional English thing to do in June), walked for miles and shopped for bargains. We went to see a play (somewhat scandalous, but still quite funny), had several barbecues in the sunshine (brr!) and when nostalgia overtook us, watched movies on Star Gold.
In all, I hope they had a good time. They’ll probably need a vacation after all that walking (who walks in Mumbai?!). Being bumped up to Club class on the return flight (envy, envy!) may prove somewhat rejuvenating.
