Very many thanks for all the good wishes for my birthday. I really did enjoy the day and was exceptionally lucky to have a sunny one! Our lunch was at a favourite Italian restaurant we try to visit when in London - we may well be back there in the next couple of weeks as my cousin and his wife are arriving for a visit from Adelaide. He has not returned to the UK since emigrating in the early sixties so I think he will be surprised to see the changes - not least in the town where we were both brought up - Watford!

I did have the offer of an E-M1X, Phill, but I have not been able to handle my present camera - the E-M1 II with a battery pack attached so the new camera was always a non-starter for me. Barrie and I do a great deal of walking with our cameras/bags and it would just kill the enjoyment for me. However I have opted for a delayed birthday gift I am awaiting the arrival of the anticipated O-MD E-M5 III - I am hoping this will be the ideal choice!

Kind regards,
Anne

I googled your lovely restaurant, lots of pics , love the ambience, the food must be devine, Italian cuisine was always my favourite.
If they're of my vintage they may well want to see the Beatles after dining ... *yes

Yes, they (and we) are of the vintage of the sixties Beatles and going back even further, growing up in the UK, I and most of my friends, were of two camps - Cliff Richard or Elvis! I was definitely more Elvis and still play his music to this day.

I don't think it was clear enough for you to recognise (it's just that we know the pic well) but showing on the restaurant website is a pic showing the daily 'specials' board and to the right of that a pic (within a pic!) of Mick Jagger posing with the owners of the establishment when he dined there many years ago!

Regards,
Anne

Sounds perfect to me Anne :) like you I don't like the added weight either.
