WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of November 6. You never know if you need an alibi ! If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.
I had to buy a new outside lamp which I put in front of the door, because it's getting dark now very soon and I thought it could be dangerous for visitors because the steps were difficult to see. When I had done that, and being outside anyway, I looked at the tiles of our terrace and found them green instead of white, moss had invaded my tiles and had declared war ! Fortunately there is a nice long lasting (cheap) remedy, just a jerrican of chlorid ! That's so efficient that even my black trousers became white spots and I had to throw them away !
Of course the cats had to check and Arthur behaved like a druggie with the chlorid smell, he couldn't sniff enough !
After that I didn't want to move anymore, so comments writing came on purpose until it was time for supper.
Watching a crime story on TV together with Rosie ended this day.
Sunday morning it was cold but the sun showed its nose so I took the train to "my" midi market in Brussels. Through the train window, which was surprisingly clean for once, I saw the red Thalys (above left) which takes you from Brussels to Paris in 1.22 h instead of 4 h, and the blue Eurostar (left) which goes to London also in less than 2 h. Before you had to take a ferry boat to go to the UK. I stayed in Brussels and made my Sunday walk through the market. As always it's very cosmopolitan and you hear all sorts of languages ! From Indian over Arabic to Polish etc.
When I arrived home it started to rain so the rest of the day I spent on my computer, and TV. A very quiet and rather boring weekend !
