With Hugh’s departure looming, every second he spends with us is precious and it’s nice for us to introduce and involve him in some relaxing activities that he doesn’t really have the opportunity to do when he is in the midst of his hectic showbiz life.
So yesterday, Darrell and I asked if he would like to help us “do up” an old wooden bike we found in the garage, that used to be Tom’s when he was a little boy, we thought it wouldn’t take much to make it a most excellent home spun present for us to give Iris for Christmas.
“Ahhhhhh zis is sooooooooooooooooooo much fun!” sighed Hugh “I ‘ave seen zee Kirsty Allsop doing zis on zee crafty Christmas, but I ‘ad never dreamed I would be doing it for myself, no!”
His imagination then got the better of him ….. “I could be doing zis in zee Green Room no? And maybe, when zee agent gets zee call from zee crafty channels, he could tell them, mais oiu, Hugh would love to do zee demo or two no? He is zee expert! And ……. zen I could write zee book, and zen ‘ave zee DVD ……..and zen my own “Hugh” de rigueur craft range!!!”
