Unexpectedly, I want to go home. Australia home. Hubby says, ‘You are home!’ I retort, ‘Germany is where I live, Australia is home.’
Book flight, jump on a plane, land in sunny, hot Brisbane with the mangoes falling on the ground.
Just prior to exiting Erlangen, I tell my husband it is time to introduce him to Blackadder. I promise to purchase the entire collection.
Only one day into work at Kellies Antiques, my other shop in the Brisbane Arcade and who should I bump into?
Tony Robinson and Moira Drexler pictured in the Brisbane Arcade.
Speak of the devil. What are the chances?
I tell him that my children love his travel documentaries and of course, we all loved him as Baldrick! Tony was so approachable, such a nice man. He didn’t mind that we snapped off a shot for the kids. He laughed his head off when I told him that I had just promised the husband to introduce him to the Blackadder Collection.
What did I do after we parted? Made sure I got that collection I promised from the ABC Bookshop.
Thanks for being such an approachable guy and having a chat. It certainly made my day.
