Eating at Westwood Cross, Frankie and Bennys, a Sunday ramble.

The moral here is don’t put the food processor bowl on the bottom shelf of the dishwasher, wash it on the top shelf. Hence the shopping mission to Westwood Cross to buy a new food processor.

Anyway a new experience for me, eating with children at Frankie and Bennys, this is next to the Vue Cinema, casino et al.

Two adults, two children, drinks main course and sweets, the meal was good and under £40, I hope the sketch I did there gives you some idea of what to expect.

I think with more practice sketching in public places, I am slowly getting better at it, it certainly keeps me occupied while the children do their eating up, complete the questions in their entertainment packs and so on.

Handy too as you aren’t allowed to photograph Westwood Cross without special permission.

I genuinely wonder if there is any situation where you aren’t allowed to sketch what is going on, anyone know the answer to that one.

I will ramble on.


  1. Former RAF Station Hawkinge

    In keeping with common practice, on grounds of both security and copyright, we regret that no cameras, video recorders or any other types of recording equipment (including notebooks) are allowed in the Museum.

  2. Would they let you in if you had a photographic memory?


  3. The Newington Clinic in Ramsgate has removed all the disinfecting hand washes and put up a notice saying that this has been done on 'health and safety' grounds.

    To follow this through to its logical conclusion all scalpels should be removed from an operating theatre in case someone gets cut.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
