Despite it being a flying visit to The Homeland, Lu has really made Darrell and Nigel feel very comfortable and instantly at home in her little corner of Wolverhampton …….
…… even down to the plumped up cushions and snuggly blanket on their own reclining sofa. She also, they tell me, makes a most excellent Cheeky Vimto Cocktail (port and blue WKD), amply accompanied by a fulsome supply of Revels and pork scratchings during their televisual viewing of Celeb Big Brother. Lu certainly knows how to treat her men!
Her home is lovely.
Nigel sighed a little when he saw our faithful old washer, due to the bijouxness of The Towers, space is of a premium and so we “inherited” the original integrated Hotpoint Washer Dryer ……. don’t get me started!! Let’s just say …….. we are waiting for it to die!
Darrell and Nigel also reacquainted themselves with our old, beloved kitchen table, the scene of so many wonderful confectionary reviews, letter reading, parcel opening and much musing and pondering, sitting at it again after 7 months made Darrell sigh as Nigel had and misty up in the eye department just a little.
And Lu’s newly transformed bathroom? It’s beautiful, really beautiful. All Darrell and Lu’s trips to almost every single tile shop in the West Midlands and beyond, were so well worth it.
They done good …….. Darrell’s even doubted whether his design guru Kelly Hoppen could have done any better.
Lu’s guest room is still in it’s embryo stage of planning, but nevertheless is wonderful haven of cosiness and snuggledom ……. and it has something that Nigel is very, very taken by …….
