darlingest; this is for you.
grace and xiumin were packing me off to buxton today at the train station. (grace will join me at lyme park on wednesday i’m going to buxton by myself this time since this holiday -was- about solitude after all it’s high time i roughed it out on my own in a hotel with room service lol.)
xiumin: “you should have flown in to birmingham directly, fly to manchester for what..”
grace: “yeah mom, why are you going to boring ol’ york? there’s nothing to do there! you should stay in birmingham longer..”
me: (brightly) “because mingsee is there!”
grace: (indignantly to xiumin) “that’s like two slaps in the face!”
xiumin: “yah lor! there are two of us here leh!”
and i laughed at them.
children children children, you must learn to share…
