Yesterday Darrell and Nigel finally set off on their much anticipated London Lounging Adventure …..
…. and, to be honest, if they had to have waited another day before affording safe passage to stay with Hugh, our best friend, who lives La Vida Showbiz in Notting Hill I think Nigel would have burst a mahooosive blood vessel and if Darrell had checked that he had got their Virgin £7.50 tickets in a safe place again I think I would have burst one too!!!
Hugh was equally, if not more excited to have Darrell and Nigel back on his manor, and had spent most of the week preening, priming, plumping and positioning his pillows to ensure that he was able to give them an exquisite London Lounging experience ….. bless him.
The first thing Darrell wanted to do, once they had had their tea and settled in, was to see what Hugh was wearing, because what the “on trend” London people (namely Hugh) are wearing in London now, is what the “on trend” people (namely Darrell) will be wearing in Wolverhampton in six months time ….. and Darrell wanted to get well ahead of the game …….
….. his glitter flecked hand knit beanie and his very dazzling bejewelled skull pin (of which the picture does not do justice) ……
….. which Hugh explained was the “real deal”, given to him by one of his famous showbiz friends, but added, that if Darrell wanted something similar he would probably be able to find a very convincing faux designer piece in a darling little Notting Hill shop that he could thoroughly recommend.
Darrell’s head was buzzing ….. he had plans of a magical shopping trip during their visit and returning to Wolverhampton so on trend he would stop traffic!!! What is he like???
