2. Nicole popped in one afternoon together with Charlie, who of course as soon as Mr. G. had opened the door, ran in the kitchen to empty the food bowls of the cats ! We chatted a bit and complained about this awful weather. On top it was rather cold.
3. I had some doctor appointments for the yearly check ups, and got the results, everything is normal, which was very good news.
4. Finally it cleared up and the sun came out from time to time, enough to dry our grass, so that Oscar could mow the lawn which had become dangerously high !
Arthur supervised. The temperatures had raised and I even could sit a bit on the terrace and also watch Oscar. What a nice invention !
5. It was very hot already in the morning which is quite unusual. I went to my Doctor and when I came out, the sky was black and it started raining and it cooled down so that I had to put on a jacket ! .
But not for long.
I met Nicole at Carrefour to have lunch together. The first mussels were in the restaurants and of course I wanted to try them out. They were delicious !
I was a little early so I made a tour around the shop and saw "red" a whole shop for Belgian football team accessoires.
During lunch time there had been a thunderstorm somewhere and buckets of water had fallen down, the whole parking was wet. Then the sun came out again full speed and we sat on Nicole's terrace.
When I returned around 6 pm it was still 30°C (86F) ! And then the whole night there were thunderstorms and heavy rain.
This morning I then heard that the UK will leave the European Union. That's very sad and also bad for the next generation. Now young British people could study and work in other European countries with the same rights, now they would need a work permit. And returning all the British EU employees to Britain will cost a lot and find them a new job ? And what happens to all the British companies abroad in Europe ? I think it will cost a lot of money to the UK ! Nobody here had thought that the majority was for the exit. My English friend married to a Belgian will probably loose her job because she works for an European institution unless she gets a work permit or becomes Belgian.
When I think think that when the UK joined the Common Market in 1973, I worked in an American company and we all feared that the English secretaries would take our job, because they had English as mothertongue and we had only learned it ! And now .... What a mess !
