FRIDAY's FAV FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
One of Belgium's most famous cartoonist who had exposed his drawings in Waterloo, came personally to sign books and postcards. I went there with my neighbor but there were so many people, that we only looked and laughed about the cartoons ! I had seen them already, but it was nice to see them again as he is the only person who is able to explain what is going on in Belgian politician's brains !
2. From time to time I love to eat "French" fries (although they were invented in Belgium I have to point out !)
The little Greek restaurant has very good once, so I ordered two pitas and the chips for taking home as supper. It was delicious, even Arthur the cat appreciated.
3. There is one real nice use in Belgium and France. When a child is born the parents offer little bags or boxes filled with dragées to family, friends, collegues etc.
As they are quite expensive, I offered my services to the future young parents and bought the necessary things to make them myself. Here you see me folding the little boxes together.
and this is the final result.
4. A very unnerving job is to take our long haired cat to the "beauty shop". She doesn't like to be brushed by us, but enjoys it very much once she is there !
She then behaves like a model cat, purrs and is just so good ! and with us she screams and hisses ! That's really offending ! Cats !! With the hairs which were combed out I could have knitted at least two pullovers. (If I had a spinning wheel and I would knit, which is not the case)
5. Between some showers I also managed to do some photo hunting for different memes.
