Besides the fact that it is difficult to write about a weekend where nothing special happened I can always talk about the weather, but even that is boring because each day it rains and rains and rains !
It is not very inviting to go outside for a walk when even sitting in the car it looks already depressing. This is our street since the last weeks !
On Saturday we wanted to go and see the Venice Carnival Parade in the heart of Brussels. Nicole arrived and together we drove to Ilona to pick her up. Instead of grey sky it started to rain more and more. We decided to eat something first in the hope the rain would stop and we could go and watch this beautiful parade.
It should have looked like this, instead I had to "steal" the pictures from last year on internet and as we had our lunch at Ikea we spent the whole afternoon there instead. It would have been impossible to take pictures, and I even wonder if the parade hasn't been cancelled due to the rain. We thought we will go next year and Nicole took the opportunity to look for new kitchen furniture and I bought ... guess what .... an umbrella ! I had again lost one. I think I should open a special account for umbrella shopping !
Valentine's day was also "under water" I am sure the restaurants made good business. As Mr. G. prefers to eat at home, I bought Sushis and "Mousse au chocolat" as dessert.
As usual Arthur tried to steal them and we had to put them in the cupboard !
We spent the whole afternoon with computer and TV and avoided to look outside !
