FRIDAY's FAV FIVE
more participants here
1. On Monday I went swimming again, this time there was no male walrus but a female one ! She had round dark diver glasses on her nose and with her black swimcap looked like a monster from another planet. She swam and splashed as if possessed by the devil without looking around and of course kicked all the others who swam peacefully up and down the line. This time everybody shouted at her and finally she dived and disappeared into another line where male walruses tried to kill each other.
The result of my body training was that I fell asleep after lunch while watching "Escape to the country" I don't know where people escaped to !
2. As the non existing summer comes to an end I thought I might need some new feathers for autumn and after the hairdresser who made me look as a human again (my hair was hanging flat around my head)
I found some beige jeans and a fitting pullover. Sometimes you need to please yourself !
3. A friend from my painting classes, has lung and spine cancer and had started a chemotherapy. I went to visit her, she had lost her hair and wears a scarf now and had also lost a lot of weight ! 40 kgs (88 lbs) ! Fortunately she had enough kgs so that it looks even better now and the weight loss is also better for her legs and spine. She is so full of courage and doesn't complain at all, so we laughed together and I showed her the pictures of my grandson, as she has one too of about the same age. She is only 57, what a pity.
It had been quiet a long time I hadn't seen my friend Chantal, because of the holidays, when she was in France I was here and when she was here I was in England. We met in our favorite Asian restaurant, could sit outside and savoured our menu under a huge umbrella. It's thai food and so good in quality and price that this restaurant is always full and this friendly looking Buddha, greats you at the entrance
Despite the fact that Waterloo has become a city over the years and so many houses and offices were built, there is still a lot of fields and woods around, which had been the the witnesses of the bloody Waterloo battle. Nicole had invited me for a coffee and a walk near her flat. I didn't even know this place and was very much surprised. It's so close and in the picture above left you can see the Waterloo Lion from far. Charly had a lot of fun of running around through the field and throwing earth on us with his paws.
He didn't bark at the sheep, which weren't very curious neither. Then it started to rain and we had to run back to the car and return home for another coffee.
