You’re about to attend Lord Quinten Daventry’s birthday party. Is this a special occasion?
Oh, it most certainly is. Darling Quinny has gone so far as to say I am almost co-hosting the party! Can you imagine? Naturally he will do all the speaking bits and greet the guests … and select the menu and the wines … and compose the invitation list … but he has so generously allowed me to participate by funding the party, and has even hinted that he might be thinking of … oh, goodness gracious! I’m quite pink in the cheeks at the very thought, I couldn’t possibly say it out loud! Suffice to say that I simply can’t wait to attend the party.
Are you buying Lord Quinten a present?
Well, the funny thing is that I HAD selected a present for him from my private collection, but a dear friend of mine explained to me that it was in extremely poor taste to flash one’s money about in situations like this. So instead, I’ve decided to surprise him with a gift that really expresses my love and adoration for him – but I really can’t say any more, or it will ruin the surprise!
What would you do if you won the Lottery?
What’s the Lottery? Is it a board game? Ooh, I LOVE games! Daddy tried to teach me to play chess once, but I could never understand why the horses didn’t just jump over all the other pieces like in a steeplechase. I love horses. Daddy bought me a horse when I was five – I called him Miss Pumpkin Buttercup.
What do you think of Tony Abbott?
I LOVE Tony Abbott – I think he’s a creative genius! I watch him whenever I have a spare moment, which isn’t often these days with my other … well, artistic endeavours (more on that later). But whenever I see him, with his wiggly eyebrows and silly toupee, I laugh and laugh until I have to dash to the lavatory! And don’t even get me started on that Costello character!
