more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. After a few
Meanwhile I had to protect them from the cats as they love to sit on them. I invented a very secure system, two chairs in the front and two chairs on the side covered with a bedsheet.
But as soon as I had taken everything away, Arthur had to inaugurate the now dry radiator, without getting egg shell white.
2. Summer holidays in Belgium are finished ! Finally ! The whole country was sleeping during July and August ! The building sector had 3 weeks off in July and lots of other companies were closed too. Also shops and boutiques. So for the last time I had acqua gym on a Tuesday and not with my usual group on Mondays. Fortunately we were a nice group and had a lot of fun when we had our tea together.
3. My toaster broke down (see post below) and I had to buy a new one. It works perfectly and my toasts are very good ! I looked a little around to see what new things are on the market, and noticed that Kindle ebooks are still not available only a little Sony one, but I couldn't find out if it was really an ebook. I saw lots of them in the UK, but apparently there are not enough French books for this purpose.
4. With the new look of our front garden I badly needed flower pots because the entrance really looks rather naked ! I went to a garden store near Ilona's and bought 10 pots, then I went to her to ask which kind of plants I could put in them, as I don't have a green thumb at all and don't know anything about plants and flowers. She couldn't come with me because she had broken her little toe and she couldn't walk. We had a cup of tea together and then I knew what to buy.
5. This morning I put all my pots in the front yard, then drove to another garden store near Waterloo, to buy earth and plants and in the afternoon I intended to plant everything. Of course the store was closed because they ran out of stock ! That's really crazy. So I came back and instead mowed the lawn
and "enjoyed" the hammering and noise of the workers, my neighbors extend their house to the sky instead of using the large space in their garden. Apparently some people love to live in towers. It's a young couple with a baby and they are not very practical !
After supper we watched TV as usual ...
