  1. yes have had one in Porto, asked for the sauce on the side though as hate soggy chips. mine came with an egg, it should also have beef and ham as well as the chorizo. I struggled to eat even half, as you say, a heart attack on a plate!
  2. one the subject of eggy bread, one of my favourites is : make a cheese sandwich, dip it in a beaten egg, (I like to cut the sandwich into quarters first) covering both sides then cook in a pan in a little butter until both sides are golden brown. yum I like mine with ketchup on it.

  4. I borrowed a jigsaw puzzle from my local book exchange, only 1000 pieces. I am normally very good at jigsaws, and quick. This one was possibly the toughest I have done, or maybe my mind is not in the right place. Anyway, its an alamy image by Steve Bloom, I am guessing it is fairly old judging by the box, but just completed it.
  5. no it does not match, but when I searched on IM for images on sale it does match. I will take a look at the number of any failed or deleted later, OK, was doing the maths in my head and it seems to be missing 7 images, odd
  6. does it include images that maybe failed QC or that you might have deleted?
  7. Paulette, I do not think you want to be up a ladder if mum or dad decided to dive bomb you!
  8. My understanding is that you can not have them as RM here if you have them as RF somewhere else. So if they are RF elsewhere, like one of the micros, they must be RF here
  9. agree with what has already been said, just want to mention, I looked at your two images with the oak panelling, you do not use the words 'wood or wooden' you may want to include them and lottery has two t's not the one you have. Jenny
  10. I am having dinner with some friends this coming week, in a restaurant, we are being given a private room (sounds posh ), and I am looking forward to it immensely but also with some trepidation. There are two small children going, I must try not to shriek if one wants to sit on my lap haha. But you are right, times like that remind us so much of how we need that interaction, but if someone had asked me three months ago I would of told them how happy I am with my own company! How little did I know. Good luck with the writing. And we must all hope there is not a second surge.....but I am stocking up on loo roll just in case 😂
  11. Good morning Edo, just read your blog post and it resonated with me. It is very difficult, I think, when living on your own during this 'crisis'. I have pretty much perfected having a conversation with myself and not letting it spiral into an argument ! I am struggling, I have to be honest, really struggling. Having no contact with people from one day to the next is so hard. People message and say, "how are you doing, are your ok?" "yes, yes, I am fine, same old", but it is not, it is hard and I do not want people to worry, so say everything is fine. I go to the shops maybe once in 10 days, I try to get out for a walk but do not always feel inclined. Here in my coastal spot of Portugal the tourists are arriving and second home owners (mainly from Lisbon......a COVID hotspot at the moment!). Although some bars and cafes have reopened and abiding by all the rules, some of the customers do not and it makes me nervous, very nervous. I went to my local bar when they first reopened, I wanted to support them, but someone came and stood right next to me at my table, chatting to someone across the way, no mask, no distancing, I got up and walked out. So far I have not returned. Next week the local campsite is reopening, I do not like it, not at all. Our numbers for positive cases are currently rising, I find it all scary. I wish I had been back in the UK with family when this craziness started. I tried to take the opportunity to work on images from within the home, but got frustrated, cannot seem to find enough light, cannot seem to up get a decent grip of my RX100iii, (I think its just me, but seem to end up with noise, noise and more noise), I wanted to tether to my laptop but sonyplay (or whatever it is called), believe it or not will not run in Portugal so can not use the bluetooth capability! Everything is frustrating me. Take care, stay safe and stay sane. Jenny
  12. I think that Alamy have been very good to allow this thread, but I do not think that posting a link to the portfolio of someone else who is supplying SS is appropriate here, or any portfolio linked to a competitors site for that matter.
