Greetings of the season to you all!
My apologies for being a bad blogger of late, I haven’t updated in ages, and now, like buses, three will come at once, so keep your eyes peeled and stick your hand out if you want me to stop. Correct change please!
In the spirit of A Christmas Carol, I will break these down into Past, Present and Future. This, as the title suggests, is a post about the past…
As you will know, I had a brief appearance on Coronation St in October – for those who missed it, here it is again….
Always nice to have a bit on the telly and funny the reactions you get afterwards.
I have the best Fish & Chips shop in Sheffield just down the road from me, Trafalgar Fisheries….
I love the staff in there, all very friendly, and they serve all the fish and chip shop fare – with the exception of Pea Fritters. Pea What??? you ask? Pea Fritters – Mushy peas rolled into a ball, fried in batter….. Bex introduced me to Pea Fritters – as a vegetarian, fish isn’t an option for her. I asked if they had them the first time I went in and I tease them constantly in the hope they will start cooking them.
So, shortly after my Corrie appearance I went in and the lovely woman behind the counter was very excited to have seen me on her telly, she was doing her hair and her mum shouted “The Pea Fritter man is on!!!!”
You can call me Mr P Fritter any time, just don’t call me late for dinner!
Whilst looking at the past, I would also like to share this photo of my Dad, taken as a publicity shot when he was a furniture store manager.
As Christmas comes around again and we miss him being with us, this reminds us all what a lovely handsome chap he was. And a Father I can only aspire to be. He’ll never be forgotten x
