French Visit

Early they arrived, my relatives, unpacking of suitcases,
kissing, jubilation and breakfast, during which all the latest
family gossip was shared. Then they all went to the beach
leaving the house in utter chaos. When returning we had
prepared a buffet, they had brought their wine, the French
are skeptical to wine not made in their country… god, how
they talked. I have a small house, had to sleep in my study, got up
at four, working, but I liked the silence of people at slumber.

About five, there were stirrings, people going to the toilet
and murmur of voices, I went back to bed or to my sofa.
Woke up at ten, they had already breakfasted and ready to
leave, kidded me for sleeping so late. Then an intense late
talking, like everything had to be said and crammed into
a few minutes, goodbyes, lots of kisses and the old house
settled back to its usual quietude.
