FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE-FIVE ON FRIDAY

1. The week started with our Scrabble group and some other girls because Nicole had her birthday and had invited some after our game. So we were 3 still married girls, 2 widows and one divorced. From the married girls the husbands are all alike they don't like to go out anymore so in total we were 6 "widows" and had a lot of fun and laughter. All worries were forgotten, because we all had one or even several, we talked about and found out that more or less we all had the same. Two of my friend's children are getting divorced and apparently the divorces are not so easy. Sad.

We had a cheese and sugar pie and they all disappeared !

2. We returned to winter and it was freezing, my already white car was even more white with the frost. The farmers are all complaining because it damaged fruits and plants. First it was too warm and everything started to grow and bloom and now it's freezing. Hopefully it won't last too long !

3. Our mayor cancelled the "Repair Café" because of the attacks in France ! Repair Café is a nice invention were volunteers repair household appliances, computers, clothes etc. She (our mayor is a woman) probably thought that the good Waterloo people were tinkering some little bombs out of a sewing machine. There were a lot of protests because we don't want to change our lifestyle because of these crazy terrorists. That's all they want !

4. As I go for a week to Egypt to fill in my empty tank with some energy, I had to buy sun cream ! Because there the sun shines and it is very warm. In the past it was difficult to find sun cream during the winter because you were supposed to stay home and only go away in summer, but now as people travel the whole year long I found what I wanted immediately. On my way back I stopped at Nicole's for a little chat.

5.


We were 17 in our painting class, and one had brought a nice apple cake and another cookies for our coffee break. We were expecting visitors, for new inscriptions, fortunately nobody came, because we are 20 I think when everybody is there and we thought that's enough. Our poor teacher had already a lot to do today ! There was Nicole struggling with horse legs and another with the perspective; As usual it was a nice morning !

The rest of the day I was busy on my computer, it was cold and windy outside.

I know you'll enjoy your trip to Egypt. Have fun and wear that sunscreen!
Scrabble groups sound like lots of fun, too.

I agree...we should not change our lives because of terrorists. So sorry the Mayor canceled the Repair Café! Hope you have a wonderful upcoming trip.

Jo said...

I also wondered about the "Cheese and sugar pie" Have a great week in sunny Egypt.

I hope your winter goes away and your spring comes back soon. The Scrabble group sounds like fun. It's hard to know how to respond to the threat of terrorism, but I agree we shouldn't cancel things and change our basic lifestyle because of them. Hope you have fun in Egypt!

I thought I'd left a comment (in French!) but maybe Blogger was playing up? It is so cold here too, it will be fabulous to get some sun on your bones and re-energize in Egypt. What a crazy decision to close the Repair Café, I'm not surprised that there were protests. Perhaps you could have a manifestation outside the Mairie in the hope of getting it reinstated. Bonnes vacances.

Rosie said...

I hope your Mayor will reconsider her decision and let you open your Repair group again it sounds such a good idea to share skills and help each other. I'm intrigued by a cheese and sugar pie. Hope you enjoy your holiday:)

What a shame the Repair Cafe has been stopped, it sounds like a great way to meet and recycle. Have a wonderful holiday in Egypt and please could you bring some sunshine back to Northern Europe, thanks.

Mara said...

The sun is finally shining over here and the temperatures are getting up to double figures as well. I was really getting fed up with all the snow and cold and wind and rain.

Tamago said...

Repair Cafe sounds like s great program. It's too bad it's cancelled,
I hope you will have a great trip to Egypt. Enjoy warmth and sunshine :-)

Wendy said...

I would agree with you about wanting to carry on as normal and not give in to terrorists. The scrabble evenings seem to be going well. Have a good trip to Egypt.
