Variant teutonic spelling: "ahein"
"I went round to give me girlfriend her birthday present only to find that she'd emigrated to New Zealand with the milkman - it was completely ahine!"

"I saw a clip Roxy Music on Whistle Test in 1972, they were like wearing fly-eye glasses and feather boas and werkin' it with mellotrons and VCS3s and echoplex madness, it was just completely ahine!"
