30 Final Days of Bangladesh – Day 27 – Home from Home?

If you’ve been following these posts over the last 27 days then you’ll remember that Thing I has not been doing so well at clearing her room even after the barrels and suitcases left! It seems that letting her have friends round for a movie was the final push she needed to clear it.

People are now coming round to collect small things – knives, bowls etc – and we’re down to sifting through five years of the Things’ schoolwork and other papers. Deciding what to throw and what to stuff into the hand luggage has been a dilemma.

In the evening, we went round to one of our best friends whose home we have visited so many times over the years. Every time we go the house has grown, developed and just generally changed. Today, the latest change was how much like our own home it was!

It’s nice to see a memento of us will be there every day with our friends. It’s not much, but it’s something.

About D K Powell

British freelance journalist, author, writer, editor, musician, educational consultant. I lived with Wifey, Thing I (daughter) & Thing II (son) in Bangladesh for 5-6 years working for an NGO called LAMB. Wifey led the Hospital Rehab department and I used to teach O levels at the school before going full-time as a freelance writer in 2013. Now we're back in the UK learning how to be British again. When not writing or editing, I'm busy trying to complete a Masters degree in Intercultural relations in Asian Contexts and reading way too many books at once. I also drink tea - lots of it.
