WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of March 10, 2012.
Compared to last weekend this was rather boring. When I came back I found our coffee made in the percolator disgusting, because I got used to the good coffee Claudie's Senseo Philips coffee machine made.
The new coffee machine
It really tasted like good Italian Espresso when you make a little cup and a good full big cup when you pushed another button.
Therefore I went coffee machine hunting and after 3 shops where they had been sold out or were far too expensive for the same machine I finally found one which was the same as Claudie's and the price was correct too. Now Mr. G. purrs like a big cat because he can make his espresso.
Since we had taken out the bushes along the house, the little window in the guest room needed a curtain, otherwise it was too light for sleeping. Dominique sewed me the curtain and helped me to hang it up, as I am a real zero in sewing it looks very nice and the room is dark enough now.
Sunday morning the weather was sunny and warm, so I took the bus and went to the Brussels market, just for a little walk. I didn't buy anything, but I love the atmosphere there. For seniors over 65 years, bus, tube and trams are free.
When I came home Mr. G. had a visit from a friend, who had some private worrries and wanted to have a talk with us. Finally he stayed until 3 pm but had arrived at 11 am. Unfortunately I think I start to get a cold, and didn't feel well, so I forgot to offer something to eat to the poor guy and Mr. G. didn't think about eating ! He is never hungry during the day but eats like a horse at supper.
We also talked via Skype to grandson Toby, he changes so much now it's not a baby anymore but becomes a toddler. It's funny to see that he recognizes us. Great invention when you live far from your family.
