Yesterday, Hugh, our friend popped by on his way to London. As you can see he bears an uncanny resemblance to the actor Hugh Grant, which is made even spookier by the fact that he is just moving into a flat near Notting Hill!
He said it was only a flying visit and hoped I didn’t mind if he nipped in to see me at work, rather than at home. I was so pleased to see him and show him around, as he has never seen the Reprographics Dept. where Darrell and I help out when there is a “rush” on. He was very impressed by the machines and helped me press a button or two, although he said that they were a scary to the uninitiated.
...... and the trolley we use to take the photocopying to the various departments.
But best of all he liked our safe where we keep our valuables, which he said was bigger than some of the flats he’d been looking at in London!
Before his left I treated him to a lemon curd tart and a Capri-Sun from the canteen,
..... where he amazed by the freshly baked daily biscuit selection that was on offer.
It was brilliant to catch up with a special friend. Hugh said he was sorry that he'd missed Darrell, but he'd be in touch with us as soon as he’d settled into his new flat. I thought that perhaps I'd dig out my old DVD of Notting Hill over the weekend and watch it with Darrell and Nigel with some popcorn and Maltesers and we'd all think of Hugh settling in ..... humming "You say it best ........"
