Time goes sooooo fast especially when you are having such robust fun! It seemed that no sooner had Darrell burst through Hugh’s front door and plonked his suitcase in the guest suite than it was time, sadly, to say goodbye!
Darrell thanked Hugh for another totally divine time, the London Lounging had been as sublime as ever, with Hugh recounting more of his tales of a showbiz type nature to an enthralled Darrell …. who would have believed that one of Darrell’s televisual hero’s was not really as nice as he had thought !!!! …..
Darrell also thanked Hugh for spending so much of his time educating him in the ways of London cuisine, passing on so much of his seemingly limitless knowledge on to him……
….. and for introducing him to some of the finest epicurean establishments in the Portobello Road
Darrell promised that when he returned to Castle Greyquirrell he would put everything he had be taught into robust and enthusiastic action …… and that our five a day regime would go up a notch or two in it’s variety and presentation!!!
Hugh told Darrell that it was “zee absolute pleasure”, but he would be relieved that on Darrell’s next visit they would no longer be encumbered by zee Village People-esque moustaches ….. although for zee most excellent cause ….. Hugh said that he didn’t really feel himself in his and that sometimes when he looked at Darrell it just didn’t feel quite right and it gave him zee willies!!!
Darrell said he had to agree and that it didn’t matter where he positioned his, it never looked quite right …… but again, it was for zee very good cause.
Parting was such sweet, sweet sorrow ….. but for once Darrell managed to keep hold of his manly emotion until he got to the underground station ….. what with Christmas and stuff he wasn’t sure when he would see Hugh again ….. but was determined not to mope (too much) and put all his energies into his new found enthusiasm for cuisine type endeavours and make Hugh proud.
