It seems that Father Christmas gave Nigel an open ticket to New York to stay for as long as he wanted ……. so it looks as if Darrell and I will be spending Easter entertaining, on our own, for the first time ever!
We miss Nigel sooooooooooooooo much, but you just cannot compare the pleasures of New York to those of Evesham, despite all the decorated shop windows that he adores and a huge abundance of all things of a chocolate type nature.
But, whatever the Easter Bunny leaves for Nigel will be safely put away for his return.
…….. And Darrell and I will try to hid our disappointment by absorbing ourselves in preparing a very special Easter Day for Little Miss Iris and Young Master Bertie ……….
…….. Darrell in preparing one of his glorious Sunday lunches, leaving me to organise an Easter Egg Hunt, Pass The Easter Parcel and assorted festive races on The Tower lawns. It won’t be the same without Nigel, but the show must go on!
