FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. On Monday we had a holiday, it was Assumption day, when holy Mary travelled to heaven. Therefore all shops were closed and as it rained (why hadn't she chosen a sunny day) it meant I had to stay inside and watch TV or do some computer work. But one shop was open ! The Indian one which is the only charity shop we have. Inside it doesn't look at all like a shop but like a house, with a living room, bedroom and shelves where Indian things are exposed and sold. The benefit goes to a village in India to built a school.
2. I went with Dominique to our acqua gym and afterwards had lunch in our (for the moment) favourite restaurant which is rather a Pub.
3.Then in the afternoon we both mowed the lawn, she in hers I in mine. Over the fence we had a cup of tea to strengthen us from the effort !
4. Our entrance looked like a tunnel, the bushes on both sides had grown so much. Our gardener who always takes care of the hedge, started to cut off all the bushes and take them out. So it will be far lighter and one can see our house again.
5. I went to the Midi Station to pick up Claudie and her daughter. From virtual friends through blogging we became real friends when I stayed with her and family at the French Riviera in April. Now I will show her Brussels and Waterloo ! Just before their train arrived we had a terrible thunderstorm and all trains were late, except theirs. But to return to Waterloo we had to wait 20 min !
From the sunny South into the rainy Brussels !
