Coming Home?

'Kev'... says I ... 'Do you think anyone would notice if we didn't go home?'

I do wonder.

e mail keeps me in touch with Lady Penelope, Norma (in India with her sikh) and Jan.

I hd a cpl of txts on my bthdy

I'll tell you about Friend A (not good) in a future post.

I hope someone has sorted out Eileen with digital TV and electric light. She knows where I am but has probably forgotten (I worry about her).

My bills are all settled by direct debit. People in the flats are used to our absence and the cousin in Marple won't be too astounded that I forgot his birthday.

I don't know about Kev - but I hear they have a new act at the folk club.

Sometimes I think YOU are the only ones who would notice if I just disappeared.


Wasn't Penelope Cruz marvellous in that film?

So - Seeya in Manchester on Monday evening.

it was a Bloody Brilliant Film.......(mind you, it was about time Woody made a decent one again)
That Band looks Funky! I look forward to seeing them at Hebden Bridge Trades Club sometimes in the near future!

Is that your Kev in lederhosen?

Nice use of 'liminal' - and I beat Dave!

Blogger Dave said...

Shh Scarlet, you promised you wouldn't tell anyone about our exploits in the dungeon.

We would certainly notice your absence, Kaz.

9:40 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

Glad you liked it - I want to see it again.
I'll contact their agent.

No Kev's on the far left in the blue skirt.
He's funny like that.

Well - someone has to.
I'll take my turn when I get back.

Next Sunday - News of the World - ex Vicar in .....
But (KAZ fishes for compliment from Dave) would you miss me?

Double Bluff! I bet you've already moved there this year and think you can fool us with an occasional pic of Manchester Shit Canal.
I've heard the folk club circuit is bereft.

9:48 am  
Blogger Dave said...

Miss? Dave doesn't give compliments, but the world would be a poorer place without you.

...the airlines would at least.

i have YET to see that film, sugar! read a fantastic article about her in the most recent vanity fair though, does that count? ;~D xoxoxox

(i would miss you sooooo much if y'all left, sugar!)

(want a postcard from san francisco & napa/sonoma?)

Was the film about a 60 year old bloke falling in love with his 20 year old daughter?

The Manchester environs are the place to be. Even the BBC's moving to Salford.

Is this a sly announcement that you're relocating to Barcelona?

PS: I'm feeling less than liminal at the moment.

I have internet again so a BIG hello and sorry for not being around recently.

I never saw that pretty bad reviews as I recall but maybe I'll now give it a chance.

As long as you Blog I don't care where from...and I can appreciate one wanting to be somewhere warmer than Engerland at the moment (though the sun's just come out so it's not quite so bad en Londres today).

If you don't go home you won't get your postcard.

Yes,we would notice.
I have not seen that film. I am sure you were fabulous in it.

Blogger KAZ said...

You know I get withdrawal systems when I move more than a few miles away from the Pennines.
I've heard the folk club circuit is crap.

*Blushes crimson as she smiles broadly at Dave's unsolicited compliment*

I know you find it hard to express your true feelings for me.

:) Thanks, I have no such intention.

Mercifully - Woody stayed behind the camera for this one.
Manchester rocks - and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. But I would like to come to the Metropolis more often.

Blogger KAZ said...

No - I miss the pits, mills, cobbles, clogs and NCIS in English.
We learned about 'liminal' from Dave (see above) on Tuesday.

I loved the film - but Penelope and Scarlett together - what more could any red blooded man want? Give it a go.
Hope France was good.
I've stayed here longer than I intended as the first weeks were really sunny - and then came the winds! But they did blow in a few more birds.

That's WHY I'm going home.

I feel I stole the show from Penny and Scarls.
What can a girl do?
You of all people must understand my problem!

I had no idea you'd been away. ;-)

Welcome back.

Blogger KAZ said...

I had no idea I was back. ;-)
Not 'til Monday.

Blogger Roses said...

See, I was right. You live in Cataluna and occasionally visit Manchester.

I feel completely vindicated.

I would miss you. I'm still trying to get you to come visit Norwich.

I have a jar of Marmalade just for you...waiting...waiting...

Sometimes, just sometimes, the word "vanish" has a tempting promising air ...

No matter where you go, there you are.

As per Dr. Lizardo...

11:40 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Not Guilty!
Marmalade? OOh so tempting.
With wholemeal toast?

I doubt if it would live up to its promise - unless you really had something to hide.

I had that thought the first time I ever travelled overseas.
I was 18 in Italy.

of course we'd miss you!!

There's a bakery down the road from me. It sells fabulous breads of all persuasions.

We could wander there pick up some croissants, bread of your choice and some c**e.

There would be my world famous chilli for dinner...

Did I mention my v comfortable sofa bed?

10:33 am  
Blogger MJ said...

Did someone mention c**e?

4:37 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Gee Thanks Pete.
That's much appreciated.

I'm a crossword expert but c**e had me fooled for a bit.

It didn't fool you did it?

4:50 pm  
Blogger Roses said...


I didn't have to bother, did I?

Hai MJ!

MJ is such a c**e hound! ;-)

Blogger The Poet Laura-eate said...

Give me the Kev and Kaz version any day!

Sorry to hear you have evidently mislaid your passport Kaz.

But your heart is in Manchester really - right?

I am afraid you are right. No one cares much about ex-pats as they feel deserted by them so they end up rejecting them in return.

10:53 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

MJ is omnipresent.

She'll take that as a compliment.

Oh No
There is NO WAY that I would ever become an ex- pat for so many reasons.
I don't have to work - so I am lucky enough to take long holidays.
This was longer than intended for a variety of reasons.

I'd miss you, only as an example of the greatness that I could have achieved if only I'd paid more attention to chemistry at school.

Blogger BEAST said...

We would certainly miss you if you left your interwebs home . Which is more fun Barcelona or Manchester . Whichever it is go and live there

Everyone in my neighbourhood would sorely miss me if I wasn't patrolling around in my bright yellow vest chiding and chastising the locals "yoots" with soul-searing pronouncements on their very existance being a waste of amino acids and then falling back on snappy repartee as they hurl expletives.

3:02 pm  
Blogger Donn w/2nz said...

Are the Kinder Von Trapps on YouTube singin' "Springtime for Hitler"?
I wonder if the sound of music is still banned in Austria? Lucky bastards.

3:06 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

A thorough study of Chemistry makes one 'great' at posting daft pictures on the internet.

Manchester every time.
I'm funny like that.

I'd love to witness the scene. Especially the yellow vest.

I still haven't seen it.
