When we left the UK, our friends Karen and Nick gave me a parcel, with the strict instruction that it was for Matt to open once in France and if he felt homesick.
We kind of forgot about the parcel but decided to open it with them when we skyped a few weeks ago. In there, this:
That dreadful toy that brought back lots of memories for Matt (it’s quite a long story – that toy has been a running joke for years and Karen happened to be trying to get rid of one) and a brick to incorporate into our house….
So we thought we would incorporate it into our life, much like the gnome in Amelie.
