Darrell was on the phone to Hugh, our friend in London who lives in Notting Hill leading the showbiz life for hours at the weekend, seriously putting our “family and friends” time limit in danger, going on and on and on, to quote Darrell about “London de rigueur trends of a festive type nature!”
Anyway, according to Hugh, who has his finger on many a beating (trend) pulse, “One should simply have
wags swags and robins ….. absolument everywhere, stags heads are soooooo last year, and out, out, out!”
And, as Darrell hangs on every single word Hugh utters in all matters of fashion and trends de decor ….. robins, are this year, all de rigeuer chez Castle Greysquirrel as well!
“I simply cannot countenance our becoming seen as festive pariahs with common decor amongst our friends, ….!” announced Darrell with a worrying Hugh like flounce and pout. But high drama aside, both Nigel and I have to agree that Darrell has done us proud on the festive robin front, admittedly more Poundshop than
Harolds Harrods, but nevertheless he has put together a rather nice display on our Yuletide mantelpiece ….
