more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
We said good bye to grandson Toby and his parents and drove back to Brussels/Waterloo. Next time we will see him he certainly walking alone, he is nearly ready ! There was no traffic at all on the highway and in about 2 h we were back home and were
A still life
2. The weather was awful it drizzled and it was grey, but I had to go out to do some shopping, our fridge was empty as our bank account ! I don't know what happened but lots of things were missing in my usual super market, so I had to go to another to get what I needed.
3. We had eaten so much over Christmas, that we just wanted to eat a Pizza ! The afternoon I spent on the phone and the computer, talking to my friends and reporting our Christmas and answering virtual Christmas cards we got.
4. A classmate from the painting group had invited me for coffee, it was the first time I went to her and fortunately I have my Madame GPS, otherwise I would still turn around today. She lives in a corner of Waterloo I had never been in all these years I live here.
She has a very nice appartment and also a very friendly dog, a golden Retriever named Charly. She had baked an Apple cake and we chatted the whole afternoon and discussed how we would spend the New Year's Eve. She is alone and one of her girlfriends too, so I thought I invite them the more we are the more we will have fun.
5. I did some cleaning as my cleaning Lady went home to Poland for Christmas, now Mr. G. has to fly over the floor and the cats are not allowed to loose one hair. My catsitter neighbor kept me 1 h on the phone, complaining about her 49 year old daughter who had been "thrown" out by her partner for the 3rd time in 15 years and and always moved in with "Mamma". Apparently she is critisizing everything her mother does and there are verbal fights every day. But now she goes back to him again because he wants her back. I told my friend that her daughter is like a boomerang, he throws her out and she flies back. Claudie my blogfriend once told me that our street makes her think of the "desperate housewives" !
