A Fine Bromance.

We’ve only been home for five minutes but Darrell was mooning around the house saying that he hadn’t seen our friend Hugh, who leads the showbiz life in London, for an absolute age
Bromance Nigel and Hugh …… and he thought he might as well take advantage of the cheap Virgin tickets he had found on the internet and  nip down to Notting Hill for the weekend to take Hugh our present from Last Vegas.
Las Vegas Drinking cupsNaturally, Hugh was thrilled to see Darrell and within five minutes he had got him out of his Wolverhampton clobber and into feathers, which Hugh informed him were “Sooooooooooooo Autumn in London, darling!
027Hugh was also delighted with our gift, (Las Vegas drinking cups), which he trilled were "Soooooooooo Last Vegas kitsch, and before Darrell could say pink champagne Hugh had filled them to the brim with a very expensive bottle of Rose/Pink Krug, saying “Darling, I just know you will adore this little vintage, I quaff it tout le temps, and, may I say, it is even further enhanced by being drunk through a straw!”  What is he like?
Bromance in Notting HillI think Hugh and Nigel are having a bit of a bromance ….. they get on so well …..
London LoungingHugh is a wonderful tutor in all that is de rigeuer in London Society and Darrell is an avid and most attentive student ….. like a ripe victoria sponge soaking up knowledge proffered and hanging on Hugh’s every word.
Notting Hill Bromance
Hugh showed Darrell his latest artistic acquisition ……
Art Appreciation.…… a Vladimir Tretchikoff .......
Art Appreciatioon…… which he was very, very pleased with …… and which Darrell very much admired too, envious that Hugh knew so much about EVERYTHING, and kicking himself for being such a novice at being de rigeuer.
London Lounging..“Tomorrow,  my little apricot brandy, I will impart to you all the mystery of the en trend London Lounging cushion and perhaps a little about voile drapery ….. no? But, for tonight, I will fetch the cocktail cherries and you must tell me of all your Last Vegas adventures ….. drink up ….. before our Krug loses its fizz …. a little refill perhaps?”
Oh Mon Dieu ….. there will be no doing with Darrell upon he return!!!

Brilliant idea Darrell....So much to learn of the latest London fashion trends.....Darrell wearing those gorgeous blue feathers makes quite a statement! Hugh is devastating in that colour; love his hat and is that a swan on his jumper?....we all are looking forward to Hugh bringing us up to date on all that is the newest and most fun in his showbiz world....will be paying close attention to his every word!....Dianne

I knitted the poppy myself in between takes its so massivo this home making malarkey i was only saying to Madge the other day while we were waiting for the runners to get our dressing rooms up to scratch that i was putting a few home making items on my riders list i think i new felt making machine and may be a cameo o and i know Madge would love a spinning wheel and a live sheep dyed red so she could just hook it up to the spinning wheel and make those lovely little red friendship bracelets that she is always harking on about and giving to close friends her self she was saying it would be so home crafted and she would know were the wool came from she said cher often asked for several dyed ostriches and a peacock or two on her list so she always had a fresh feather to hand its been so lovely having Darrell come to stay his rider list was very small just while he was here hot bubbley baths drawn for him twice a day by ME Bath the Eight continent range a large bottle of Clive Christians NO1 for Men so he would smell nice two Bassett hounds puppies so he could promenaded around the serpentine on Sunday morning and not look like a tourist but a Kensington local out walking his dogs before he pops in to a little French knightbridge cafe for a double espresso and cognac to read the Sunday papers and to help kick start his day a crate of Henri Jayer Richebourg Grand Cru Cote deNuits france and a 4 boxs of Le chocolate BOx patc Swarovski studded chocs those he said were the boys and girls back home as they would just love to have just a small taste of london lounging I must say Darrell is such a humble modest chap he did not go over the top and start asking for ridiculous things like those custard cream and nice biscuits that are so hard to get one has never sen them in Harrods food hall the poor runner would be tearing his hairout trying to find such strange things Big show biz wave Hugh

Just good friends, as they say.
Hugh has broken the Mum's Monkey world record for mahooosive replies. I could cheat and make a longer one by writing an extra long mahoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooosive way to spell the word mahooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooosive. But that would be cheating, as a wrote a few words back.

Didn't we see this or another Vladimir Tretchikoff at Hugh's Mews before. Or do I muse? A cat mews too.
