So we’re at a ‘do’ at the weekend, and H gets introduced to the big boss. Which all goes well until right at the end when all of a sudden my brain goes into “I am speaking for H mode” and I do just that. In front of the boss.

I don’t think it went down well. All I said was “I Want it!” in relation to his house.


Then I said something along the lines of “ooh, H, you can’t say that!” despite the fact it was me that had said it – though her body language had said she wanted something (and I wouldn’t blame her if it was the house, it’s lovely).

This all wouldn’t be so bad if I was in any way drunk, too. I wasn’t – I was stone cold sober. Add to this that I was probably a bit nervous too.

Oh dear.
