Well, I've known his mum since we were 11 , so I'm sort of surrogate aunt. I've seen him on a regular basis since he was a baby. I just wish when they turn up on their adventures, they'd give us a bit of notice. His sister phoned from a bar in Nottingham , and bought a friend with her.!!

 At least his older brother gives us 24 hours notice.

My aussie lodger is probably eating me out of house and home.(I'm at work)

I left him snoring in bed. Whilst in London he got scouted as a model for Abercrombie and fitch. Interview, job offer, the lot. He turned it down because he's off to Paris for the weekend.
