I’m not sure about the romance, but the looks thing is true, down to Philippe having very definite ideas about the way the kids and I appear.
He’s also routinely disgusted by the small amounts of dust on the floor of my car, and spends a good deal of time wiping the kids’ thumbprints off cupboard handles. I’d simmer for days; I couldn’t bear confrontation.The maid said: ‘We do have pasta in Mauritius, you know! Or rather, on a blind date a couple of days before.He was ‘advertised’ as a handsome, blond Swede: and he was.One night he gave a rose each to me and an Italian girl who was working with me. I grew up in Eastbourne in the 1970s on my mum’s spag bol.She thought it clichéd and threw it in the dustbin as we walked home; Giancarlo reminded her of her old-fashioned Italian uncle, she said. But Giancarlo’s pasta was different: bouncy strands of spaghetti, a little torn mozzarella and basil, and the sauce between the pasta rather than on top of it.Midsummer’s all about flower garlands and schnapps and there’s a crayfish festival in August, which I adore, with more schnapps. I find it remarkable that Sweden does such a good job of exporting gloomy crime series: Stieg Larsson, The Bridge, Wallander.
The winter weather’s gloomy, true, but the Swedes aren’t.He took himself off, too, when he had an outbreak, which made me wince a bit.This prissiness around looks is very different to the way most British males act.I still love it when I brush against one of his suits, or smell the trail of his aftershave.Later, I’d look into his wardrobe and marvel at the clothes: folded neatly and colour-coded like a Benetton shelf.It was the classic first rendezvous at Covent Garden Tube. I was living in Milton Keynes and commuting to London, Philippe was living in Crawley.
