“Ah yes, but you are worth it my lovely.’

Laura showed Bobby and Conchetta the gold and diamond necklace that Tim had bought her.

“It is lovely, I am glad that you have found each other, it will make Timothy much happier knowing he has a sister. He always used to say to me when we first got married that he wished he had a sister or brother. Now he has one.’

“I must admit it is nice to have a brother and a handsome one at that.’

She held onto the gold and diamond pendant and smiled.

The boys couldn’t wait to put on their football strips so their mother placed all the tee shirts and shorts that they were wearing into her hand luggage and the boys put on the new football strips and ran around the duty free area in them.

After drinking three cups of coffee Laura and Conchetta went to the bathroom.

“I think we should go too said Bobby because the toilets on the plane are tiny.’

“Hey boys shouted Tim to his sons who came right over.’

“George can you look after our luggage.’ Bob and I are going to the bathroom. Do you two need to go?’ “We only have a short time before we board the plane.’

“No dad were fine replied Buzz and Junior.’

Bobby pointed over to the right of W H Smiths where the toilets were situated. The big man who was well over six feet five and 200 lbs. of muscle followed at a pace. His blond hair and blue eyes gave him looks of a movie star and the young woman all turned to look at him. Even though Tim was in his forties he looked half his age.

When they came out he heard the call for their flight he called Conchetta and Laura they all brought the small cases over then walked down to the gate.


Back at home Albert prepared the bedrooms and went to the Morrison’s supermarket and bought a big food shop with lots of meat and vegetables. Laura would be back about four that afternoon and Buzz would get in at five o’clock. It would take him forty minutes to drive to the airport to pick him up. He prepared a salad then placed it into the fridge he cooked a large chicken and made rice and pasta that could be eaten cold or reheated in the microwave. He went into the shed and pulled out six stools; he dusted them down and set them around the table in the kitchen along with the six chairs. It was a bit cramped like Christmas but it would have to do. He had both red and white wine and a large bottle of whiskey. He bought five big bottles of Pepsi cola, Ice lollies and a large tub of raspberry ripple ice cream and some cones; he knew that the kids would like that. He washed and changed into a pair of Navy blue chinos and a casual shirt then looked at the clock again for the umpteenth time. It was now ten past three and the plane would be landing soon he thought.

He splashed some aftershave on his face then re-combed his hair. The gardens were in pristine condition they had been done. He had been unable to get to his allotment but would call in later and feed the pigeons. He had rang in at the library and taken a week’s compassionate leave. He rang and told his parents who were coming around any minute so he could then drive to the airport. Albert heard the car and looked out to see his mother and father. He went to the door and let them in.
