Today we met Uncle Gamlen for the first time. To say that I was rather unimpressed is quite an understatement. The man hasn’t washed in weeks, and his clothes… I must admit I was somewhat at a loss, as I clearly recall more than just a couple of occasions when Mother claimed that Amells were nobility. Either Gamlen didn’t get the same speech, or it may be that in other parts of the world, nobility has another meaning.

Anyway. I was quite shocked that he had the gall to comment on Mother’s appearance! Mother’s! Seriously, I don’t dare to wear such necklines as she does – though I must admit her anti-wrinkles lotion works better than magic. I hope that she will share the recipe one day.
