Thanks for popping in today!
Been catching up on yesterday,
having had THE best meal ever at the Goring.
What a splendiferous Hotel!
Check out this Trompe L’oeil!
The whole Hotel Lobby was hand-painted like this!
I looked for the wallpaper seams, but couldn’t find any,
so investigated further, and yes it was all an original painting.
You felt like you could step right into the walls.
A real living work of art.
Even the elevator door was hand-painted!
And then the private dining-room….
Now I never usually take pictures of my plate,
but on this occasion, I just had to.
I had a little chuckle at the Post Script.
You know I’m a monkey for finishing the end of the sentence…
well in my head I read:
If you suffer from any food allergies,
please inform a member of staff,
as we have additional doctors on call.
So eat what you like, and we’ll sort it out later.
Didn’t take a picture of the Starters.
I was that hungry, I forgot to!
And by the time I remembered, it really wasn’t that picturesque!
But look at this little masterpiece:
No wonder they just received their first Michelin Star.
And the pudding was actually substantial.
Just looks small when parked on a plate the size of a dustbin lid!
(Compare with dessert spoon to get proportion!)
And the business meeting ?
Yes. It was excellent too.
Good People, clever people, wise people.
I was delighted to read all the blog stories of lady Hipple-Popple and the like yesterday! What colourful imaginations you have!!
There are clearly a lot of books out there that need writing !
Saturday’s blog a new technique, right?
Just a quick peek at what’s coming up tomorrow on TV.
I have 2 arty-stamping hours in the afternoon, where I will be turning my hand to a couple of new techniques :
Then at 8pm we’ll be going across the borders into Grooviworld…
and I will be launching a handy new Groovi thing.
So 4 more hours on Monday:
9am 12noon. 4pm and 7pm
Hope you can join me.
love and hugs,
