Counting The Days

Darrell so looks forward to going down to London to stay with his best friend and mentor Hugh, who lives the showbiz life in Notting Hill.  No sooner as he is back home than he starts planning and making arrangements for his next visit.
But the  cold, dark, unromantic days of January seem to be laying heavily upon Darrell’s heart and spirits ….. to be perfectly frank, I think he may have a slight touch of “the melancholy” ….. so to get him out of these doldrums I suggested that he should occupy himself by making a sort of Advent chart of the days to go, so that he could see his next trip draw ever nigher ……..
As he did so, he hummed and sighed whimsically, and I could see his gloomy mist rise, and his spirits robustly buoy once more…..
….. with dreams of de rigueur and happy days spent with Hugh …… just hanging on his every word. ………… 
………. happy days indeed!

23 days won't take long to pass before Darrell gets together with Hugh and Mum spends time with Marc.
I'm sure all will have a wonderful time.
