Last night we decided to embrace a premature Halloween … because Darrell won’t be with us tonight as he is bound for London to spend a few days with our friend Hugh in romantic Notting Hill and indulge in a little of his showbiz life.
After robust and, at times, heated debate it was finally agreed that after Nigel’s recent disappearance it would not be the most sensible of ideas to allow him to go out “trick or treating” …….so we organised a little festive apple bobbing chez nous for him ……
…. well, in truth…. pear bobbing , because Darrell made a “bit” of a mistake when he was popping things into our online shopping basket ….. unfortunately before you could say Granny Smith ….. Red Bartletts were being checked out! What is he like?…. but apples or pears ….it really didn’t matter to Nigel ….
He embraced the activity with all his usual joie de vivre …. although we never intended him to get quite so wet!
