We haven’t seen you for ages. Have you been ill?
No, I’ve been up north for a month.
Where was that?
Glasgow. I got back the day before yesterday.
How nice to see you again. Where have you been? Home?
No, I’ve been visiting relations.
I went to Sterling to see an uncle of mine.
Come in and sit down. We haven’t seen much of you lately.
No, I’ve been away on holiday.
Edinburgh. I’ve got a cousin there.
You’re quite a stranger. Have you moved or something?
No, I’ve had a few weeks in Scotland.
Where did you go?
Aberdeen. I stayed with my brother.
