17 September 2006 (or 1916, if we must be technical)
Yes, I know it's been over a week since I wrote, but honestly, nothing spectacularly interesting has happened. ( Unless you count the gremlin kick-line.Collapse )
My pocket money is holding out quite well, my health is good, and I'm not at all in danger of being debauched.
No one else has even turned into an animal recently!
Write back soon and finish telling me about Mustafa bin-Aled and the problem with the construction site---
from your sister,
P.S. Could you send me more of the khakis that are in storage in Cairo? It may be that I'll have need of them soon.
P.P.S. No I shall *not* be sending you the names of the horses who won the English Derby. Or the Kentucky Derby. Or the Arc de Triomphe. Don't ask me again, Jonathan. That's very annoying.
P.P.P.S. When I finally understand how the television works, I promise I shall explain it. Until then, I'm as baffled as you.
Love - ETC
