There is a very tangible and palpable air of excitement Chez Castle Greysquirrel that I can only compare with the night before we flew out to Last Vegas! For tomorrow we shall be mixing and mingling with famous writers, actors and television people when we attend an exclusive screen preview of Channel 4’s Raised By Wolves written by Caitlin & Caz Moran, which also includes a very special (and probably romantic) coach tour of Wolverhampton, and the promise of “substantial refreshment”!!!!! It’s all too much to really take in!
As soon as Darrell got home from work yesterday afternoon he began fussing and fretting about our outfits, deciding in the end, after consultating with Hugh, (his best friend and mentor who lives the showbiz life in Notting Hill) to go smart but subtly cazzzzz……..
……. which he then proceeded to spend, what seemed to be hours, ironing and laying everything out, including our socks and pants, “There was no way on God’s green earth,” he declared “….. that we will be seen to let Wolverhampton down!”
When he was finally satisfied that our wardrobes would not malfunction he disappeared again to make some fairing gifts for our hosts, as it would be most rude to go empty handed … he also helped calm an increasingly nervous Nigel with assurances that when meeting people of a televisual type nature that curtsying would not really be expected, except for perhaps if Bruce Forsyth tagged along!!!
