FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. As usual during our tea ceremony after acqua gym we had our weekly chat and this time came up how often did we take a bath or showered when we were children. As we all have more or less the same age, not everybody had a bathroom when we were kids, but our kids take showers everyday. So I came up with my question how often should a baby be bathed because apparently it is not good anymore to bath a baby everyday. Of course all grandmas protested and said that this hasn't changed at all and babies should be bathed each day. In our group is a midwife. She is not only a simple midwife but she also gives conferences on meetings from midwive associations from all over Europe. And she answered : it depends the country and the pediatrician. So now I know that Belgian babies are bathed everyday, while other babies are bathed twice a week. As a freshly baked grandma I learn every day.
2. I started working on my "Blog Book" and I have to admit that it takes a lot of time, I am still busy with doing the cover. But as the weather is as usual wet and cold, it's a nice occupation.
3."Sales" are still going on in Belgium until the end of the month, I did a little window shopping, but didn't find anything interesting to buy. What is funny now is, that there are "Sales" on "Sales" ! It gets cheaper and cheaper.
4. We had our "girls" meeting this time at my place and around a cup of Karkade tea (from Egypt) and some cookies we tried to make the world a better place with a lot of laughter.
Mr. G. was "locked in" his office not to disturb, and wondered why he got the impression to hear a bunch of giggling teenagers.
5. Yesterday we celebrated the 81st birthday of a classmate in my painting group ! She had baked a delicious cake and brought 2 bottles of champagne ! I was really surprised that she was already so old, she looks much younger and is full of humor and laughter. The cake and Champagne disappeared in no time and we had a lot of fun too.
I don't know if our paintings turned into modern art after the birthday party !
