my son, my son

MasterM is back
with a rucksack full of laundry.

He is enjoying home cooked food
after 12 consecutive days
of chicken wraps in Greece.

Most of the traveller's tales
are completely unsuitable for publication
so instead I shall let you share
this very special moment...

MasterM says it is the first time
that his toe has been mistaken for a flower.


  1. Haha - I thought the specialness was that Master M had actually slowed down long enough to have a bit of a sunbath! And then I saw the butterfly. Awwww...

  2. P.S. Jazzy underwear selection.

  3. Apparently butterflies taste with their feet, so I hope that foot was recently washed...

  4. T.G. your blog is not aimed at the teenage girl market as there may have been some mistake as to the specialness you were offering up there. Sadly as an old, nearly middle-aged woman all I could think was 'Well, if he were my son I would think how special it was to have him home too.'

  5. You weren't kidding about the laundry... K x

  6. And I second Lynn's comment! K x

  7. I'm impressed that he wore clean boxers for twelve consecutive days. You obviously have him well trained.

  8. don't tell me he tool ALL those boxer shorts away with him? how big was his bag???

    what happened to the travellers' rule of 'one on, one dirty, one drying'?

    geesh, the youth of today!!

  9. Toes.
    No further comment.

  10. That top photo said it all.... I thought it was beauty! It just said "he's home!". . .

  11. The chicken wraps seem to have done him no harm.

  12. Obviously his feet....are sweet

  13. OK, I'll be the one to just say it:
    I wish I were 20 years younger!

  14. Master M looks no worse for the wear! Traveling seems to agree with him. I am so glad he is home so he can eat your homemade cooking :)

    Love the boxer collection, very colorful.

  15. Round here it would have been a wasp. They're rampant at the moment.

    I'm not sure a line of boxers has ever been more photogenic!

  16. is it an elderly thing to look straight past the semi-naked young man and admire your pretty wall and flowerpots?


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
