Yes, Darrell has worked his magic on The Towers festive décor ……. but yesterday I noticed he was a bit quiet and perhaps even a little brooding of a Heathcliffe type nature, which isn’t Darrell at all. I knew he wasn’t happy about something but felt he was best left alone.
Then, mid afternoon, he said that he was just popping out but wouldn’t be long. I didn’t have a clue what he was up to but within the hour he was back brandishing an Aldi bag.
He then explained that he’d realised that our Christmas tree may have been all colour co-ordinated to an inch of its life, but it was sadly lacking for Iris and Bertie, he had been extremely remiss …….. there was something very important missing and if it didn’t co-ordinate then ……. who cared!
What Iris and Bertie ought to see, he declared, was an abundance of chocolaty tree decorations ……. and to wit that is what he had in his bag.
He and Nigel then both spent the rest of the afternoon hanging up said chocolate baubles …….
I am not entirely convinced that the one that got “squashed” was an accident on Nigel’s part, especially with his musing that perhaps it ought to be sampled to make sure it wasn’t faulty or stale…… what is he like? But I have to say that the tree is now PERFECT and Darrell’s spirits lifted.
