WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of January 14. 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.
It was a rather quiet weekend, with this cold and rainy weather it's not a pleasure to go outside and visit things, I feel like a robot with a low running battery.
On Saturday we had a visit from Mr. G's Ferrari friend, who informed us, that he wanted to buy two new cars, which is not exceptional for him. In the 6 years we know him he had at least changed 7 times his and his wifes car, once he buys them big, then he needs some smaller once so we have known him driving cars from Landrover size to the Mercedes Smart, where you need a shoehorn to get inside. There had also be a Mercedes, a fat BMW and a Harley Davidson which, once he had bought it was to heavy for him to lift it up. The only car he still has since the beginning is his beloved Ferrari. Never mind, some people buy toy cars others real once. That's the boy in a man, with money.
Now he wants to have a very, very small car, because petrol is expensive (during the oil crisis, it was expensive too) and he thinks about buying two little electric cars. I wonder how long this quirk will last, I'll keep you informed.
Between two showers, I also got rid of the Christmas garland which was still shining in our hedge .
Since all Christmas signs are now gone in our home, I also had to change the decoration in the basket at the entrance which I always decorate for the seasons. I made it very colorful to compensate the grey colors outside. Rosie was my supervisor.
I got from two "virtual" friends the link to two companies who can print your blog as a book. I didn't know that this exists and of course had to try one out. It was fortunately only a trial, because when I had choosen the cover color I forgot to also choose a picture for the cover, and the program choose one picture out of my blog and guess what it choose .... the one and only from a Wordless Wednesday, showing a man peeing against a tree ! Imagine this would have been the final book cover to enter in my family history !
Now of course I am very busy to select the posts I want to be in the book, it's quiet a challenge and I am very excited to see the result. But this will not be for tomorrow, as I have more than 1000 posts to sort out.
I also went over to Dominique to explain some things she wanted to do on her computer and she didn't know how and ended up with a cup of tea and the latest news.
