Hi. Thanks for dropping ny my blog :-)

Hope you had a great meal at the restaurant. It looks like an interesting place.

Maybe I should wave next time I go over the Severn Bridge? :-)

Hi bob-kat: I changed to New Blogger today and my comment thingy is all different. It was a lovely meal and do wave with a red handkerchief then I'll know it's you:)

Veda said...

That's funny!

Here from Michele's

PI said...

Veda: happy to oblige!

Hi PI - thanks for visiting my blog - hope you come more often. That restaurant looks great. I spent a few lovely days in London just before Christmas 2005, and I ADORED it. We ate several times at a restaurant called DaMario's in the Kensington area. I loved it!

As for Wordpress...go to wordpress.com. It's a free blogging site like blogger. They will import your entire blog (well, posts and comments). You have to re-do the links and everything else. I haven't had a chance to explore it yet and see what HTML damage I can do to the templates, but I am hoping to get there sometime this weekend!

Going to look around some more!

PI said...

Hi Linda and welcome! I hardly ever get up to London now and miss the theatres and galleries. I'm glad you had a good time. Wordpress sounds a bit frightening. Having only today moved to New Blogger I think i'll lick my wounds for a while.

That looks a good restaurant; I wonder if the wooden boy moves at all?

Michele sent me here.

PI said...

Hi jean-luc: I don't know. I'll give nim a tweak the next time I'm there.

Veda said...

Heya, Pat. Back from Michele's.

Now I'm curious, what's in that green room in the back? :)

PI said...

Hi Veda! It's a continuation of the restaurant which is a series of small rooms and ends in a conservatory. As it was the day aftr Val Day it wasn't too busy.

Hey, PI. Michelle sent me.

This is one cool looking restaurant. Did the red walls affect your appetite at all? I've heard it's supposed to.

PI said...

Hi susan! I don't think so - i ate with my usual gusto!

Bob-kat said...

Hi. Just popped by to answer your question you left me.

The photo on the header of my blog was taken from the beach at Calpe in Spain. The sea is the Mediterranean adn Calpe is about an hour from Alicante. The pic was taken as I was walking back along the beach on Christmas Eve. I posted mor epics of Calpe on my Blog in January if you're interested. It really is a pretty place.

PI said...

Thanks bob-kat, I think I remember them but will pop over and look again.

Looks like a fun restaurant. The walls look to be the same shade as I painted my office.

Michele sent me.

panthergirl said...

So funny!! Is it an old place or does it just look that way?

Here by way of michele...

Tan Lucy Pez said...

What a warm and friendly-looking place! Wish I were there.

PI said...

miteymite: it's warm aand cosy and the food is pukka Ktalian.

panther girl: I suppose it is old - our house was built in the twenties so i'm used to it.

tan lucy pez; we usually go when any of the children are here. Fortunately they all seem to like it.

Azgreeneyes said...

That looks like a great restaurant to have dinner at, not boring in the least! Is it a large-ish type (chain) restaurant, or a hole in the wall, family owned type? Just curious!

Hi Pat - I love the Pinocchil statue. Michele sent me over, and I have been having a lovely time reading your story in the archives.

leslie said...

that looks like a cool place. I love all the masks and the color of the walls. I haven't decided if I am scared of the pinocchio statue or not....
Michele sent me!

PI said...

Hi Catherine! It's very brave of you to read the archives. I hope you enjoy them.

PI said...

Hi Leslie! puppets can seem a bit creepy can't they? Especially when they are that size.
