I checked the pile of laundry waiting to be ironed, but again, the item continued to elude me; and since it wasn't in the laundry bin either, I can only conclude that I must have left it somewhere -- possibly in the UK, as I vaguely remember having packed it for the October 2004 tour.
Damn! I loved that tunic.
Anyway, after Leila's spent some time away from home, it's now Manasse's turn. Mum's agreed to let him come and stay with her for a couple of weeks. I'm hoping his absence from home will at least entice Leila to give up the relative safety of her carrier, and take back possession of her house again. I daren't think about what might happen when my boy gets back, though.
