Writers’ Block! A Blogger’s Nightmare, But…

I have been struggling to write something these past 48 hours but nothing doing! I don’t know why. It feels like starting with so many headlines and topics! But as soon as I commit pen to paper whatever I wanted to write about just fizzles out. So I got to thinking! I need to be a bit more creative. Sometimes the best posts come by when you are least expecting the sort of stuff you end up writing about and publishing. I reckon the best approach is to start writing, whatever comes to mind. Perhaps look through your collection of photos – remember there’s a story behind every photo! Dig deep into stuff you’ve done, places you’ve visited, events you’ve atttended, food etc.  So hey, I am going to practice what I preach. This post is about the arrangement of mugs I saw at a Garfunkels restaurant recently. This experience helped me overcome my momentary writers’ block.

The light through the gaps in this mug arrangement is amazing!

I was most impressed by the many displays of mug arrangements around the restaurant. I have been to many restaurants but none as keen on in-house advertising as this Garfunkels restaurant in Central London. I have never seen anything like it! It seems to me by these mug displays that Garfunkels is not taking its business for granted nor its customers.

This creative line-up was my idea...hmm...different...

I also think that the mug displays do not only serve as Garfunkels advertising but also serves souvenir seekers with discerning tastes in food, service and ambience. Yes, the creative mug arrangements and displays add to the ambience of the place. Well, I left the restaurant not only satisfied with the fare, service and cost but also the ambience.

A beautiful castle of mugs...

I heard somewhere that often times the customer pays for the ambience more than the food, service etc. In the case of Garfunkels, the one I went to on this particular evening, it had it all!

The great friendly service, the great food enjoyed – most delicious, the cost, the ambience and of course the amazing mug arrangements that were pleasing to the eye, were a great ending to a wonderful Sunday with my family.

What more can a woman ask for? Quite right! what more could I have asked for.

Driving home that night, I looked back on the day and decided that having dinner at Garfunkels that night was a great decision. A fantabulous time was had by all.

    1. Hi Malum,

      Great to hear from you. Thank you for the encouragement. You know how it is when blogging is a part-time pleasurable activity. Been reading your blog posts – lots of great developments and uplifting news. I’ll certainly check out the political cartoons. BTW – is the PNG grassroots cartoon still around?

      Have a great week. God bless.
      Mari
