My uncle is clearing his stuff ready for a move into a local rest home. Tonight he gave me these ‘green plastic eggs cups’ – a souvenir of his holiday into China thirty years ago.

My mother was looking after his affairs as he and my aunty travelled the world. One day a parcel arrived in the mail from China. Mother told my uncle that his ‘green plastic eggs cups’ had arrived safely. To this day he still doesn’t understand that Mum was joking- she knew or course that they were Chinese jade drinking vessles.
