the latest

Hi, once again not a lot to tell. Arrived in Norwich this week. Beautiful boutique B and B. Called 3 Princes. Probably the best on the tour. Its a lady called Carol who owns it and its just great. I rang the door bell and she opened the door in a her night dress. Funny place to have a door. She said did I have a good memory for faces. I said yes she said good there's no mirror in the bathroom. I had salad for dinner the first night, salad for dinner the next night and salad for dinner the third night. Then she asked if I wanted her to read my tea leafs. I said yes. She said I tall dark handsome man was coming .....i said I hope its the butcher.....tar ah!!!!
Its the old land lady routine. Thought it might amuse. Sad bastard. 
Poor Louisa our wonderful understudy has had to cancel because of illness. We will miss her. We travelled a lot together and she was lovely. Get well soon. Catherine Rooney (my favourite best friends girlfriend) is taking over. She is lovely as well. You may remember her. I mentioned  in a old blog that she was a 'young' Jane.. I mean that in a caring way. 
We hit Scotland next week. Dundee. I'm staying with my good friend Fiona in Aberdeen (daughter of the famous Calum Kennedy) and then we finish....can you believe it finish already, in Glasgow. Really looking forward to that. 
Ok got two shows today.

Latest news

Well actually not too much news. Once you are on the road life becomes pretty much getting up going to the theatre and doing the shows. They are great though. Guildford was lovely because I stayed with friends and a lot of people came from London to see the show. We got the best review ever from the Surrey Advertiser....not exactly the Times...but. The lovely lady actually said "Watching the show makes you wish you had seen Al Jolson live....but then he couldn't have been as good as Allan Stewart. Not that I have memorised it or anything. Actually up to now every single review has been amazing. Well except for Dibdens. I think I'll send him all the lovely stuff and point out that maybe he is right and everyone else is wrong. 
We are in Plymouth at the moment and its a really lovely place, especially as the weather has been great. Up to Newcastle next week. Looking forward to it as its a great theatre and packed from what I hear. Only getting home for one day though, really need two days to recover. I cant believe we are half way through the tour. It seems like yesterday that I was thinking I cant learn all this stuff.....
Ok off to do the matinee.
