It’s been a rough old ….. sad old year …. and without Darrell’s and Nigel’s robust, buoyant effervescence, goodness knows where I would be. They have kept me together and made me laugh and sometimes sing, even when I didn’t think there was a smile left in my heart ….
….. I have been musing a lot over the past few weeks about how much they mean to me and when I saw this quote it struck a chord ….
….. and then I knew I wanted to do something for Darrell and Nigel that was so special that they would never ever forget ….. to say a mahooooosive I LOVE YOU to them …..
Through the aforementioned Lovely, Lovely Lisa C’s tenacity and due diligence she found us the holiday of a lifetime, staying at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas next summer. I have to admit that while she was away from her desk sorting out all the paperwork I became totally overwhelmed with feelings of an emotional and Elvis Presley bound adventure type nature.
Nothing had been too much trouble and seeing my dreams materialise before my very eyes made my usual stiff upper lip go very limp indeed!
I intend to keep this all under my Stetson for the moment, as I am planning the BIG REVEAL on Christmas morning …. with perhaps a few clues leading up to it during the Season of Advent. I know there will be no doing with them after the BIG REVEAL, but I think I will be able to cope with the ensuing joy of their excitement and anticipation in the following months …. Heaven help me ….!!! Now shhhhhhhhhhhh not a word!!
