We don’t ever think Nigel will really leave Cook …. but the path that beats to our new orifice holds much romance for the little fella at the moment, in the guise of mahoosive and robustly noisy machines of a very manly type nature ….
…… His usual due diligent punctuality has gone totally down the shoot, as Darrell can attest as he has taken to watching Nigel dawdle on over to us at break and home time ….
You only have to mention the words “hard hat” and “hi vis vest” for Nigel to glaze over completely …… the days of bespoke suits seem like a life time away ….. with Nigel now aspiring to protective overalls and safety boots!
He dreams of partaking in great steaming mugs of builders tea, biscuit dunking and ribald banter in the innermost sanctum of the cabins with “the men” ….. which is why Darrell now has to “head him off at the pass” as the entrance to the said cabins is perilously close of our aforementioned orifice …. ….. for fear that an inadvertently left key may prove too much of a temptation …..
