When they had the voting from the Icelandic jury from Reykjavik I looked to see if I could see them jumping up and down in the background, but I think by that time they would have been in bed …..
…. it seemed an opportune moment to break open the Haagen-Dazs, Macadamia Nut Brittle, nom, nom, nom, and ponder upon adding going to the Eurovision Contest in real life one day my Bucket List, how exciting would that be?
In the end Austria won, Hugh my best friend and mentor, who lives the showbiz life in Notting Hill had told me to look out for the singer, Conchita ……. and in a way it was perhaps a little fortuitous that Nigel was in Iceland, otherwise I would have had to have a “complicated” discussion with him about a lady with a beard winning our televisual highlight of the year!!!
So next year’s competition is to be in Austria ….. I wonder when the tickets will go on sale?????????
