Patrick Grant and moi …

Meet my new boyfriend friend doh ok, look who I met …

Isn’t he lovely? All casual, chilled out and delicious. Where did I find him? At Eroica Britannia of course, amongst a thousand vintage bicycles and their cool beyond belief owners.  

Well, I can’t say much more, three weeks on and I’m still all of a quiver. 

While this photo was being snapped I may have accidently stroked Patrick’s back. I’m sorry, what can I say, I got carried away. When I realised what I was doing, I got a bit girly (I’m so embarrassed) and apologised profusely …

He didn’t mind too much and asked me for my number. Ok, that’s a blatant lie. Actually he does look a bit worried here, oh dear.

I didn’t tell him it was my birthday, or that my dress was made by my lovely mum in the 1970s. I just spluttered something silly like ‘thankspoo datswick, so nice to eat chew’ and ran back to my husband all hot and bothered with a demented grin. Ahh, the joys of being me.

*I immediately sent the top picture to my fellow sewist sister-in-law. An hour later there was a voicemail, ‘OMG that’s amazing, I hope you don’t mind but I’ve cropped you off and made it my screen saver’! The power of Patrick!

  1. This is so funny – it has made my day so far! I laughed out loud when I read it! I would have been just as flustered I’m sure – the power of Patrick indeed!

  2. Ooh lucky you. Great pictures too. I saw him in East London going about his business a few months ago but didn’t have the bottle to go up to him. Am kicking myself ever since. Nice that he was happy to have a piccie.

    What a happy occurrence! I can understand all the inability to talk and feeling all of a quiver; I would be exactly the same. Well done for getting a pic! This event looks really fun too, hadn’t heard of it before.

    Lord that man is yummy! I would have said much worse and pinching his bum might have happened. I think! Or I would have been dribbling like a teething baby. You made me laugh so wickedly, I got bad looks from the office staff!
