OMD, OMD, OMD, as if the excitement of our impending Greek Odyssey isn't enough .....last night Darrell was on the phone to Hugh, his best friend and mentor who lives the showbiz life in Nottinghill for an absolute age and though I couldn’t really discern what they were talking about, the air was filled with great shrieks, billing and cooing, and so many OMG’s that in the end I lost count …… however as soon as Darrell put the phone down, all was revealed! Hugh has only asked if he can stay chez nous at Castle Greysquirrel for a week and a bit in the summer holidays as he needs to simply recharge his batteries away from London brouhaha!
He has told Darrell that he will be leaving his usual entourage behind and that he wouldn’t be making any of his usual outrageous “backstage demands”. We are categorically not to do anything special for his visit, there is absolutely no need to repaint the room in which he will be sleeping and any flowers to decorate it should be from our humble little garden and not great pretentious displays that most people tend to welcome him with. We are to act as normal and treat his mere presence as a trifle. He wishes, he says “To live as a native, darrrrlings!” but, if we don’t mind, could we find out where is the nearest helipad to Castle Greysquirrel is and is there a Fortnum and Mason in Wolverhampton?”
Is our village, neigh Wolverhampton ready for such a visit? However, I don’t care what he says about being treated as an ordinary human being, the planning and preparations start here, I don’t want our hospitality to be found wanting ….. especially if fans and the paparazzi get a tip off and find out where he is staying!
