Missing Matthew

Amy's boyfriend, Matthew, has been staying with us for the last two weeks, but he flew home this morning, and all that is left to remind us of him is a fridge full of Pizza Hut leftovers and a slightly strange smell of feet.

It has been great having him around - although he and Amy have had to be told off for arguing more often than Jody and Dylan, and he did sulk when Middlesbrough lost the football. Five nil.

Sleeping Beauty and Scooby Doo will certainly miss him. And not just because he buys them nice fancy dress outfits.

Never mind though, the never-ending lollies that Matthew's mum and dad sent over are very useful for stuffing in their mouths if they make too much fuss.

Rachel will also miss him. A bit. Although she won't miss the strange looks she got from her new ladies-who-lunch friends before she explained he was Amy's boyfriend rather than her toyboy.

But she did get up at 6am this morning to take him to the airport.

And after waving goodbye, she drove off, sadly, into the sunrise.

Then swerved sharply because the glare made it impossible to read the road signs in time to avoid ploughing through a couple of cones to get on to the flyover.

Still, there were always the Pizza Hut leftovers to polish off before anyone else woke up.
