Erddig and My Favourite Lesbian

Chris and I outside Erddig

Nigel and I 
Like Three middle aged old poofs Nigel, Chris and I all traipsed over to the National Trust House at Erddig for a mooch around the house, grounds and cafe. The rain held off and the trip proved to be a rather relaxing and enjoyable afternoon 
Speaking of middle aged old poofs.. here is a somewhat bawdy clip of my favourite lesbian Miriam Margolyes being interviewed a few years alongside the charming Stanley Tucci and the non-flavour of the month comic Jimmy Carr......
she tells a bloody CRACKING story
Enjoy x

  2. Did you see her this week on Graham Norton with Wil.i.am ?
    She told the most brilliant stories once again. Have a look on iPlayer.....you'll love it. It is always repeated in the week as well. XXXX

  4. I love Graham Norton, like Theanne I saw him in Father Ted as the incredibly annoying Father Noel Furlong http://www.channel4.com/programmes/father-ted/video/series-2/episode-1/age-old-question

  7. Wonderful! I love M.M. too. Also by coincidence, H.I. and me have just watched 'The Devil Wears Prada', and I am sure the bloke in the specs was in it?

  9. Glad to hear you had good weather, John.
    We've had rain for about 3 hours here, now.

  12. Miriam is now my favourite lesbian!! That was hilarious!
    Erddig is nice! You two look so cute together John. You could pass for brothers you know, but that would be considered incestuous in some circles.....

  14. Dang. I didn't get to watch the entire clip because I saw enough that I knew to close it when one of the neighboring seniors came walking in just now.
    My Internet connection is down and I have to go to the community center to get online you see.
    Anyway, I like her and hopefully can catch more of her at another time.
    How handsome the three of you look here.

  16. She could say anything with that accent and it would sound proper. We had never heard of her, and now we're watching all her clips. What else have we got to do?

  17. Gay Jewish humour; what more could one ask for!

    Thanks for a smile on a dreary Sunday morning xx

  19. PS Surely there is a song in " Three middle aged poofs at Erddig " ??

  20. I didn't know she was a lesbian? She tells a great story. I love Graham Norton. You all look lovely in your photos. xxxx

  21. Goodness me, Miriam Margolyes doesn't mince her words, does she? As Duck says, with that accent she could say anything and sound totally respectable. "So I killed the vicar and then I burnt down the church...."

  22. Mz Margolyes is a craft old gal... I saw her in the VAGINA MONOLOGUES years ago and she as delightfully naughty with her ad libs.
    She seems to enjoy "shocking" people with her cut glass potty mouth...
    I adore her

  23. Miriam Margoyles is brilliant, as is Graham Norton. So gifted both of them.

  24. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Oh lord, and she sounds so proper as she says it! TOO funny!!!

  25. Will the American soldier please stand up? I'm guessing he still remembers that day in Cambridge and the girl on the bike. She has great comic delivery.

    Nice photos and it looked like a milling around kind of day, very relaxing.

  27. Lovely pictures! I wish I had seen Erddig when I was in the UK. My Welsh experience settled around Carnarvon Castle and Aberystwyth, where we rode the narrow gauge train.

    Now for the rest of the story - I'm still chuckling after watching several minutes of Miriam and I have to go back to the guide thingy and watch more! She's marvelous!!!

  29. We get Graham Norton in Canada as well. It's the only place I have ever seen her, but she does give me a good laugh.

  30. Miriam on Friday night was just fantastic!!! So funny

  31. She has perfect comedic timing, doesnt' she?

  32. Erddig is one of my favourite houses ever. I spent a wonderful day with my chaps a few years ago and I could happiy have spent another day as well.

    Sadly, I couldn't get any sound on the film clip, but I agree that Ms Margolyes is always a joy. She's also a Dickens expert.

  33. I think I love her even more than Matt! (But probably not as much as that soldier loves her.)
    She is brilliant. I want to grow up to be just like her.
