My little sis, who’s 16, has been in India for the past 2 weeks and this week, is on a mountainous trek in the Himalayas. It’s a lower sixth school trip – the lucky little devils - we never had this sort of thing when we were in school! If we were lucky, we’d go to some obscure Belgian town for a day and look at a lace museum or something equally as mind-numbingly dull!
My baby sister in India – I’m so jealous! I was, until she got Delhi belly last week, and because they are staying in a poor part of town, I was imagining some horrendous toilet conditions – ick. The poor thing! She mentioned that all they have been drinking is bottled water, and she is so tired of it that I must make sure the house is stocked with other drinks when she returns! And because India is largely a vegetarian country, she says she must have meat too! :)
The house is really quiet without her and I miss her incessant chatter. It’s not the same watching TV by myself either – when we’re together, we play the advert game. This is basically trying to identify what the advert is for in the first few seconds of the ad, just by the music or images, before the product is displayed or mentioned. It sounds silly, but it’s a lot of giggly fun. She always has the advantage because she watches more TV than I do!
I also miss the house being filled with music when she plays the piano. She’s very good, and it’s so relaxing. I miss hugs and the random bits of gossip about her friends/school/who’s fighting with who, etc. I love my little sis, and although we sometimes fight, we have become close without me realising.
So I wanted to ask everyone – do you have any siblings, and what do you miss about them when you’re not together? If you’re an only child, tell me about your closest friend.Current mood: Grumply, because it was so hot last night that it was impossible to sleep
