SUBTITLED – IT’S ALL IN THE DETAIL
It’s admittedly not quite as romantic as London, but the bright lights of Birmingham can be just as exciting and hold as much mystery, especially to Nigel …
……. and as it’s only about 20 minutes away from Castle Chateau Greyskull, as the crow flies by train, Darrell decided that while I needed a little peace and quiet after my “surgery”, he would treat Nigel to a “Pre Advent” day out to the aforementioned city, with the view of acclimatising Nigel to all the festive brouhaha ….. and thus calming his robust propensity to get a little over excited!
Their first port of call was to the iconic Selfridges emporium where they spent quite a lot of time, which is why I fear their adventures may turn out to be a bit of a saga ….
It was here that Nigel had his first encounter with a very realistic faux Father Christmas …. and Darrell spotted something (in his opinion) that was rather strange …..
…. on one of the Yuletide Tableaus……. it appeared (to him) that ALL the manikins were wearing Primark Christmas jumpers !!!!!!!! …… If he could have, he said that he would have looked at the labels in the back of the necks but there were rather a lot of large baubles in the way that could have made his passage precipitous …..
….. He was also very tempted to ask an obliging assistant where he could find/purchase such splendid jumpers ….. but then thought better of it! Sometimes Darrell’s eye for “the detail” staggers me….. I suppose it would only take a minute for me to e-mail Selfridges to settle the conundrum for him!????
