Auntie Jan and I have been colluding in great secrecy over Darrell’s birthday present, given that Stacey Solomon is not touring at the moment, we decided to see if they were releasing any extra Take That tickets …..
Auntie Jan had a spooky sort of Derek Acorah feeling one night last week and acting upon this said feeling she went on a (reputable) ticket site, which let her in and purchase two tickets, one for her and one for Darrell! How brilliant is that?
We didn’t want to say anything until the tickets had arrived and were actually in our hands. When they did arrive we had a long debate as to when to tell Darrell that he was getting his birthday present from all of us early.
We also had to take in to consideration Darrell’s levels of excitement and our nerves and blood pressure …..
But in the end we decided that part of the excitement of a birthday present were the days building up to it, all the looking forward and the anticipation, so we gave him the tickets last night …..
He cried! Not a howling or a weeping and wailing sort of cry, just a silent cry with a drippy nose, accompanied by a lot of sniffing.
He stroked the tickets and thanked us all profusely, especially Auntie Jan…
………He held himself together very well, before saying that he was a little overwhelmed and was going to retire to his bed a little earlier than usual, then hummed “The Greatest Day”, as he climbed the stairs. However, they say still waters run deep…………….. so heaven help us on Saturday………
