It feels like Nigel has been away from home for an absolute age, so goodness knows how it must feel to him, but yesterday he admitted that he was finally feeling the beckoning of a distant homeland and a gentle tug on his heartstrings……..
……. and, believe it or not, it was a humble box of confectionary that started this heartfelt yearning.
Whoopers may be original “malted milk ball” and Nigel has enjoyed their pleasures many times over the past few weeks, but, Maltesers they are not ….. and as he finished the last box that he had kept in wardrobe, his heart and mind were returned to Evesham, thinking of all those cosy Saturday and Sunday nights in, with us all snuggled up on the sofa, watching X Factor or Antiques Roadshow and, as is our want, passing round the obligatory box of Maltesers.
It was then that Nigel decided that it was finally time to do the last of his souvenir and present buying and return to familiar, if not so hectic and foreign climes, Santa done good, but even the most wonderful dreams have to come to an end at sometime.
