my mum never travels light. this visit she came baring two suitcases, one of which was a veritable mary poppins gift bag. i have since acquired; several t-shirts (3/4 length and short sleeved, both black and white), two skirts, three dresses (all appropriate for summer weddings), pyjamas, a push up bra, decorative wine bottle cover, christmas presents for other people's children, and i even get to keep the suitcase it all came in. the winner by far, is definitely the radiator duster; "look, it's really good, you can get between all the nooks and crannies, see? my god, it's filthy in there, don't you dust?"
she even vacuumed the dog.
