As he came down the stairs this evening, Mark casually informed me that he will be in the 2010 edition of Who’s Who, and asked if we want to buy a commemorative silver platter.
I questioned him exhaustively as he passed the letter with gold embossing to me – When did he find this out? Why wasn’t I told earlier? Is my name in it too, given that we are Civil Partners? How much is said sliver platter?
Why this didn’t warrant an email from him at work I’ll never know!
I feel like Hyacinth Bucket (it’s Boo-Kay!): “Won’t you come along to one of my candlelight suppers with mulled wine and hot minced pies? We could drink tea from my Royal Doulton with the hand-painted periwinkles!”
