Another post from me without a postcard. I am in Holland visiting my elderly mother. Luckily she is computer savvy at the tender age of 92 and has a good desktop system in her living room. Here she is playing one of her games that she indulges in every now and then:
As she is nearly blind, she has special software that magnifies everything on the screen.
My sister and I are staying for a week and other than enjoying mum's company,we are also catching up with old friends. Yesterday we went out to dinner with old childhood friends. They took us to a steakhouse in the centre of Rotterdam. This was my steak:
It was obviously a very popular place. (We had to book a table) although I thought is was very expensive. (Anybody can throw a steak on the grill or grill some veggies. No skill involved me thinks).
Here is a photo of the interior of the place:
The view from the window onto one of the central plazas of Rotterdam (it was raining, so there isn't a soul on the street):
The name of the restaurant is Cornelis, and the one of the desserts was 'a kiss from Cornelis':
We had a delicious meal and a lovely time with our friends (one of whom I hadn't seen for 40 years!)
I will be linking up with Elizabeth for T For Tuesday, where anybody can link up their blog as long as it has a drink in it. My drink is on one of the above photos (a glass of rosé).
I almost forgot to tell you that I have a new camera. (Sony Cybershot, thank you Valerie for recommending it) and I was amazed that I never needed to use the flash in the dark(ish) restaurant. I'm sure there will be a 'night setting' or something on it but I had just got it out of the box that day and don't know yet what I can do with it, so the dial went on 'automatic'. Not bad.
That's it ladies,
Wishing you happy T-Day,
CU next week,
