I can’t believe the kindness of our friends. Look what Hugh (the one that has just moved into Notting Hill) has sent me, a wonderful woolly duffle coat for my ski trip, I felt myself filling up as I opened his parcel and tried it on.
He bought it with his first weeks wages playing piano in a swanky West End cocktail bar. He really should have spent it on himself, buying something like a sequined jacket or candelabra, and not on me.
He also sent a letter and card. He said that his repertoire is mainly light jazz and show tunes, but he will always play a request if asked. It’s only on a Sunday evening, so he will have plenty of time for going to auditions etc. We are thrilled for him, it’s one step nearer the show biz life he craves. Darrell and I are “all talk” about auditioning for X Factor or Britain’s Got Talent but Hugh is really driven in a Pineapple Studios type way.
One day, I am sure, we will see his name in lights.
