None of us expected anything of a romantic Valentine’s type nature this morning but, when Darrell went to get the post Chateau Castle Greysquirrel was filled with a tangible and robust air of excitement because …..
…… the postman had left a rather large envelope addressed to all of us BUT in a hand that no one recognised.
…. Inside were three red envelopes addressed to each of us …. we let Nigel open his first …… the air of awe and wonder filling our senses ….
On the front was a teddy with outstretched arms proclaiming “I love you this much” and a Thorntons chocolate cupid lollipop stuck down with blu tac on the front ….
….. which Nigel wasted no time getting his teeth stuck into, saying that it would be most rude to let it get stale!
His card had a London theme to it, probably a veiled reference to his frequent trips to London to see Hugh our friend who lives La Vida showbiz in Notting Hill, it also contained a very sophisticated Whittard Chilli Chai teabag, with the word “Enjoy” underneath.
….. to reveal a message declaring that the sender loved me 365 days of the year ….. and inside a set of heart shaped post it notes …. heavens to Betsey!!!I was totally overcome and could feel my composure waning .. in an emotional Hello Magazine interview type way.
…. All we have to do now is to work out from whence they came …. We could send them to the betrothed Tom the Scientist for robust forensic analysis or, if he is too busy, Jeremy Kyle has been known to “do that all important DNA test” …. although we have no wish to “guest” on his show for a heated debate of any kind …. besides none of us possess any grey jogging bottoms which seem to be a prerequisite apparel when appearing on his show, so that will probably rule us out of a DNA test anyway! But whoever you are mystery admirer ….. THANK YOU, you have made our day!
