WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of December 4. 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.
Because of the very cold weather on Saturday and a lot of snow I couldn't put my nose outside, the street was icy because the truck with the salt had forgotten to come to our little street. So it was quiet dangerous to drive if it wasn't really necessary. On top of that were lots of people doing their last Santa Claus shopping and the shops were full. In Belgium Santa Claus is very much celebrated in the Flemish part even more than Christmas and the children get their gifts from Santa Claus.
Therefore I stayed home and felt in prison.
That's what I saw when looking out of the windows on Saturday !
The day I was occupied with finishing the Christmas decoration and taking pictures of the ornaments. I also took pictures of my cats for the cat blog and that was it.
I also did some collages like here with all my angels
the table decorations
and the other little figures
So next year before I buy anything, I first look at my collages to see what I have ! Because in one year I always forget. This year we won't have a Christmas tree that's why I put some ornaments in the plants, we will celebrate Christmas in Amsterdam for the first time with our little Grandson.
The crèche and the open fire which always comes on purpose when it is so cold outside. It also creates such a cosy feeling.
Sunday was very much the same, it snowed but the temperature rose and the streets became even more slippery. I tried to create a nice Christmas card, which took me quiet some time. I also had such romantic things to do like the laundry and some other household scores.
Our street on Sunday morning, the snow is melting and it rains.
In the evening Dominique came and brought lots of desserts, which had been left from her mother's Santa Claus celebration, she had invited all her 6 children with children and great grandchildren, together they were 63 people ! When I think of my poorly family of just 4 and not even a half.
We watched a very funny classical French Christmas movie "Le père Noël est une ordure" (Father Christmas is a scum). I had seen it already many times, but it still makes me laugh. It's a classic movie but Dominique had never seen it and she had a lot of fun.
