WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of November 6. You never know if you need an alibi ! If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.
This weekend I wouldn't have a valid alibi, because I didn't put my nose out of the house or only two times, so there is only Mr. G. and the cats who can confirm where I was.
The reason is that Belgium is under water, since Friday it had rained non stop first a strong steady rain but then real buckets. Fortunately we live on the heights of Waterloo and had no flooding problems but all little towns around Waterloo and even Brussels were affected.
I spent Saturday mostly at my computer and watching TV where I saw terrible pictures of people standing in their flooded homes and looked desperately on the damages. I saw the firemen helping all around the country, people had to be evacuated, it was just very sad.
flooding in the red zones
I can't remember that such a flooding ever happened in the whole country.
I only went out because I had no book to read anymore and went to a second hand shop where you can find books for 1 or 2 € and they even have a big choice in English books. I bought one from James Patterson, if he says something to you, I like his crime stories. And this bad and rainy weather is just the right time to read such books.
The other part of the day I spent with drying my cat Arthur who enjoyed the rain and went always out again when I had just dried him. Silly cat !
What a weather !
On Sunday it was very much the same, except that I went to Dominique in the afternoon to explain some computer things and also the use of Picasa. While we were busy her son called to inform her that her DIL was just going to the hospital to give birth to her baby girl, so she had to leave to babysit her little grandson.
I returned home and to my TV !
