We learnt yesterday of the death of Jiajia's Uncle, who we have always affectionally referred to as "Druncle" on account of his love of booze. The authorities believe he actually died some time last week, but no one noticed. He was a strange guy to say the least. For a start, he wasn't actually Jiajia's uncle - just a guy who Jiajia's "Gran" once used to look after (and her Gran was actually her great Aunt). But when Gran, on her deathbed, made Jiajia promise to look after Druncle, Jiajia solemnly agreed.
