Another of Jack's friend here at the Manor is Ramon and he is from Venezuela. Jack's not the kind to only hang out with skippys when he goes OS. The Manor provides ample opportunities to meet people from all over the world: France, Spain, Brazil, China, Switzerland, Italy, Wales...you get the idea.
Ramon very kindly donates his watch at meal times for Jack to play with even if Jack has a big piece of squidgy banana in his hand. Ramon just smiles as he wipes the dribble off his watch before he puts it back on.
I'm trying to teach Jack to say 'Hola' but no luck yet.
Actually I think I'll have better luck teaching him to say 'Ciao Bella' as a pretty italian girl has just moved into the Manor and caught Jack's eye. At breakfast she said to him 'Ciao Bello' and I thought he might swoon.
Tonight we went back to the thai restaurant with the lovely waitress who played with Jack while we ate our dinner. She was very taken with him and used to give him lots of cuddles, but she has left to work somewhere else.
Never mind, the pad thai was still good.
