WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of February 11, 2012.
This weekend I was quiet busy ! My neighbor's daughter Isabelle celebrated a "round" birthday 45 years. When we moved to Waterloo she was just 6 and loved to play with our son who was 3.
After pizza and brochettes, she showed us how to play bowling with a WII. Mr. G. was very enthousiastic and after a catastrophic beginning he really got involved in the game. We had a lot of fun with it.
Jean, the other neighbor, is 92 years old and loved the game too, he almost got angry when he lost. I think I know now a nice birthday gift for Mr. G. I don't know how I managed but I made a "strike" at the very first time.
After that Dominique and I went to a show presented by "The Stars of the Beijing Circus" to see "The Legend Of Mulan", a Chinese legend. According to this legend, there was a female warrior named Hua Mulan who joined the army to fight in place of her father. Mulan was reputed to be a very brave woman who disguised herself as a man and fought in combat for 12 years (read more here The Legned of Mulan)
It was a very beautiful performance ! The costumes were gorgeous and the artists just amazing. If ever it comes to your town I can only recommend. The pictures are not perfect but a nice memory.
Sunday morning as the sun was shining I took the bus from Waterloo to Brussels for the first time in 37 years ! As I am retired I can ride free on buses and trams and I just wanted to try it out on a Sunday morning. Much better than the train and the bus end stop was just at the entrance of the big market !
I made my little tour, bought some fruits and socks, and then returned with the bus. I think from now on, I will always take the bus to Brussels ! So easy !
The afternoon I had to do with sorting out my photos and we ended the Sunday with Miss Marple and 3 murders. As usual Dominique came over, she loves Miss Marple too.
