WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of March 5. 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.
I had a nice and quiet weekend, it was cold and windy outside so I prefered to stay home and catch up with my photos and also do some computer work I had neglected, like back ups etc. I still had to do some cleaning in the house because of the painters, as I had been busy to prepare the guest room for last weekend and didn't have any time for the rest. This kept me busy the whole Saturday.
No rude guest this weekend, but Dominique came over for a "Movie Evening". We both love the English Series "Midsommer Murders" and love Inspector Barnaby so we watched one film with "only" 3 murders. At least this series is full of intrigues and very suspensful, without blood flowing in streams.
Mr. G. loves this series too so he watched with us. We had some cake and tea and it was a real nice evening. Sometimes doing a "home cinema" is better than going out when the weather is so awful.
On Sunday it really was a sun day ! Looking out of the window I thought I could go in a T-shirt ! But I had to dig out my thick winter coat, it was only 2 °C (35F) and the wind blow quiet strongly.
Flowers, cheese, vegetables and self knitted cardigans from Peru, not to forget the delicious Belgian wafels
Therefore I did my little walk on the market in Braine more like a jogger, bought a freshly prepared "Tartiflette" for supper which was absolutely delicious and then a friend arrived and together with Dominique we went to the cinema (seems to be my movie weekend) watching a French comedy called "Les Femmes du 6e étage" (The women of the 6th floor) which treated the hard life of Spanish cleaning women working in France in the 60th. The subject was rather sad because there were treated without any respect and had to work for a miserable salary. The story was that a rich Banker fed up of his posh life, moved into the 6th floor into a little box room which could contain just a bed and a bedside table together with the Spanish cleaning women who also lived in these box rooms without running water of course. It was hilarious ! We laughed the whole film long ! That was exactly what I needed to distract me from my worries.
I also bought a beautiful fake sunflower bouquet and put in my room to cheer me up. I haven't gotten flowers for quiet some time and the once I had secretely expected from my last weekends guests I never got.
As a French proverb says, "you are never better served than by yourself"
Tartiflette, Arthur rolling in the sunshine and my beautiful Sunflowers.
