We were just having breakfast on the morning that Andy was due to collect his OBE at Buckingham Palace when the gate rang. The taxi wasn’t due for another 20 minutes, so I walked down the drive and peered through the gate to see who it was. A guy flashed a card at me. Drugs tester.
“You have to be kidding!” I said. I was more frustrated than Andy, who seemed to take it in his stride and see the funny side. It can take ages to get a sample if you’ve just been to the loo and I had visions of us turning up at the Palace embarrassingly late. Luckily, the guy said: “It’s not a urine test, it’s blood.” So Andy sat at the table, had his blood taken, and we only left quarter of an hour late.
