FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE




more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.

1. Now it's already more then a week that I am back from my holidays in the UK and nothing special has happened ever since.

2. My friend Chantal came for a visit, I hadn't seen her for a long time because when she came back from her holidays in France, I just went off to Eastbourne. So we had a lot to chat and Mr. G. after a few minutes of polite presence, escaped into his office as anyway he couldn't place a word.

3. My friend since 62 year, Gisela was in her summer house in Holland and had invited me for two days. Unfortunately the cold I had caught in the London aircondition freezing buses got worse and I felt so bad that I had to call her and cancel our get together. Unfortunately she finishes her holidays in Holland in two days, so we probably will see each other in Germany where she lives near Cologne.

4. I talked with Dominique over the fence and then I went to her because she had the wonderful idea,



to invite me and Nicole to Thonon les Bains, in France just at the lake of Geneva at the border of Switzerland. It's a very beautiful area and she owns a big holiday villa there with swimmingpool, which she keeps for her children and their partners and friends. So we made up the dates, the route, and we booked a hotel for one night, otherwise the way is too long to go there in one shot, at least for us, we don't want to arrive there half dead. We will go beginning September, it's not too late to have warm weather in this area.

5. The rest of the week I tried to get rid of my cold with hot tea and medication, read, watched movies, blogged and watched TV.

I hope your cold is long gone before you go off to Lake Geneva. It sounds like your friend has a wonderful place there.
In September I am going to the US state of Virginia, which is south of Washington, DC, to meet with other women bloggers for a "Blog Fest" which is just a two-word name for party. Dick and Lindy were invited but Dick has to go away on business, so Lindy will stay with her friends Gayle and Larry, who love her almost as much as we do.
Take care of yourself, and hug the cats for me.
Luv, K

Oh I'm so sorry you caught that cold again. Hope it's over soon. I see Dominique is too good to her children letting them use her house. Pity they don't do things back for her! I love it that you're going to Lake Geneva and look forward to seeing the posts and photos. Rest up well this weekend, my friend. (((Hugs))) Jo

It's now over 3 weeks since I got back from London and nothing has happened here since. I didn't even catch a cold for a souvenir.
Hope you are soon well again and can look forward to another holiday.

You needed a rest after your England trip -- that's why you caught that cold ;>))).

Your next trip sounds wonderful too.

Lake Geneva - how lovely. Your cold will be gone by then so you will really be able to appreciate such beautiful surroundings and enjoy time with your friends.

I'm sorry you had to cancel your trip to Holland but going to Lake Geneva sounds like a fair trade.
Enjoy your weekend!
