Welcome back, Loves. I’ve got a brand new drama strip for you.
Just humour me, and remember, I am no Posy Simmonds!
Christine, our hero, is complaining:
No-one knows what it’s like to be a wallflower, unless they actually are one! To always look into a mirror, and be disappointed…..
I’d always been plain, right from a kid. I didn’t shine in party dresses the way other little girls did.
I had no-one in the world, but thanks to my parent’s legacy, I wallflowered my way through university, got a decent job and flat. I was approaching my thirties when my life kind of began…..
Me old boss had pegged it, and his blue bloodied son walked through the door. Inherited the lot. Well, I wasn’t going to say No to that, was I?!
All the same, this Love thing was alien to me. I was nothing like his posh totty friends, I had no connections, no real money – nor looks or personality. But Edmond was smitten…
I really was a blushing bride. That was something else I’d never taken for granted….
I hadn’t been through these gates before…
Had I really made the right decision? I know I was ready to embrace a new life, but was it right I should live in his family home? Deep in picturesque countryside?
