FRIDAY's FAV 5
This week I had nothing to show or tell about, so I joined Susanne at Living to tell the Story for the Friday's fav 5.
1. The summer started officially on Monday of this week. I had to check it twice because we had 12 ° (57 F) and I had to put the heating on. It also rained cats and dogs. I just wanted to do like my cat Arthur, sitting on the heating and then nap the whole day !
2. I found a letter in the mail informing me that the water would be cut off from 9 am til 5 pm. Of course this had to happen my cleaning day. I filled up the bath tube, buckets and pots to be sure to have enough water for the whole day. After only 1 h the water was running again and I remained with my tube and buckets.
It took 4 days to empty the tube by throwing a bucket in the toilet after use.
3. Last weekend I went to the Waterloo Lion to take some pictures of the preparations for the reconstitution of the battle.
It was a big preparation, the biggest one ever with tribunes for the VIP's and people with well furnished wallets. Soldiers in their historical costumes did shopping in the supermarkets before they were "killed" in the battle.
4. Of course I couldn't miss the Royal Wedding which took place in Sweden
and armed with tissues I watched the whole ceremony from beginning till the (happy) end.
I had met a friend I hadn't seen for quiet some time so she invited me to see her little one year old grandson, which I did as you can see, training myself for the grandma job in November
