Allo allo

Chris returns from Istanbul this evening, a day later than he thought at first. I had arranged to go to Sheffield today, so I have had to depend on the kindness of my sister and the neighbours to complete dog walking and chicken care.
I am popping over to Yorkshire to support a friend who is a bit of a frustrated actor/ performer.
He is appearing ( like you do) as a camp Nazi in the low brow comedy " Allo allo"
So there will much chewing of scenery and " listen very carefully, I vill tell you only once"
Harold Pinter it is not.....
But I am glad to be going over.....it'll be fun.
I'll catch up with Chris tomorrow.......if your reading this me old son......there is a cassarole in the slow cooker ( with dumplings!) and a strawberry angel delight in the fridge for your supper!
Hey ho

  1. You could have sent him a text! I bet you did anyway. I was never a fan of 'allo 'allo, but I like it better now.

  4. Saw this in St. Albans earlier this year when I was a steward at the theatre. Lots of basques and German sausage. Enjoy. xx

  5. "Allo, Allo" the series was played here in the US. My father found things like this, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers and such to be laugh out loud funny because of the double entendre. My mother wasn't amused!
    Supporting a friend's creative outlet is generous & important to them. If they derive a bit of happiness from it more's the better.
    Your dumplings & strawberry angel delight would find a warm welcome with me! When you are in a caring relationship these seemingly little things mean so very much. You and Chris are blessed...liberal use of bleach in the cottage not withstanding. x

  10. Reminds of that very innocent line in old sitcoms, where the local PC says "Allo allo allo, what's goin' on 'ere?" Nowadays of course it's more likely to be "Wot the fuck do you think you're doing, sunshine?"

  13. When people leave dinner for me, I find it in left over containers in the fridge. I hope Chris knows what he has. :-)

  14. I'm sure with your appropriate expectations, the play was just the right kind of amusing. And the dinner-in-waiting helps explain why Chris puts up with you and your menagerie!

  15. Ah yes, dog walking. I have scheduled each Wednesday with dog walkers. They come at three PM. I am so grateful. I love your little piece go "normal." We are urban dwellers. We are not fond of suburbs and must be in the metropolitan area for my husbands job. We lived with a lovely back yard for 31 years, then moved this past spring to really urban digs.

    Oh dear ... cats are calling, breakfast time!

  18. Spices? I hope you brought you know who some spices. Never come home from Istanbul without spices.

  19. 'Listen very carefully, I will say this only once' (in a French accent of course). Enjoy yourself! Chris is lucky to come home to such welcoming food. I wonder if the dogs will behave themselves for him tonight or if Albert will bring him a mouse as a present?!!!

  20. Ahhhh, enjoy your casserole and a quiet evening Chris.

  23. I hope you enjoyed it in fact I am sure you will. I was never a huge fan of the TV programme but I think the stage play is super. We did it in 2006 and it went down a treat. The husband played Crabtree (any excuse to grow a bloody moustache) and I did the costumes - I made the German uniforms by converting Swiss army cadet pea-coats. Worked a treat!

  24. About 30 years ago, we visited the set of " Allo,Allo" in Elstree/Borehamwood. All so much smaller than it looked on TV…set out in a line with the audience in front! My son, aged about 6/7 went up to get Vikki Michelle's autograph, and she told him he had beautiful eyes! ( He has blue eyes and very dark hair)

  25. I hope you enjoyed "Allo! Allo!" You would have made a great Lieutenant Hubert Gruber - the aide-de-camp!
