Quote For The Day

"We'll be open in a minute. Do you want breakfast?"
                         {The Cafe waitress - Arrival}
    That line "Do you want breakfast?" always makes me think yes, a full English with a pot of tea.
    There is also a gardener in that scene, washing down the black and white tiles of the patio using a hosepipe. In bygone days in Portmeirion, a gardener would wash down the black and white tiles using a hosepipe, I presume that is still done today.

Be seeing you


  1. "I'll see if coffee's ready", the waitress says. That meant filter coffee the preparation of which took some time, not espresso, cappuccino, latte or the like coming out at the press of a button from a device half the half the size of the "General" computer. Those were the days. - BCNU!

    1. Hello Arno,
      That's quite right. Making a proper cup of coffee does take a great deal of work and time, grinding the coffee beans, then waiting for the coffee to filter. Me I like my coffee black with two sweeteners, and on occasion a pinch of salt!

      Hope you had a good weekend, and have a good week.

      Very kind regards
