Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of January 22. 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.

This has been a quiet amusing weekend as I went with my friends Dominique and Ilona to the theatre in Waterloo. The title of the play already said it all "The trauma of the rabbit"

It was the story of 4 girls sharing a flat together with a rabbit. It was hilarious and we all had a lot of fun. The Theatre was full and the presentation very good.

After the play we went to Dominique for a last cup of tea before going to bed, but of course it wasn't only one cup but severals and we talked about the play and that we should do this more often.

On Sunday I was invited to my neighbour's (and catsitter) birthday, just across the street. Mr. G. couldn't come with me because he had an eye infection and didn't feel well. He also had to wear an eye patch and looked like a one eyed pirate.

There were family and friends, 11 people all together and we had several kinds of cake and of course champagne ! We all congratulated her to her 27 th birthday pretending that we were all dyslexic. After the traditional "Happy Birthday" song we attacked the cakes and emptied the champagne. We know each other for such a long time in fact since the day we moved into our house in 1975 when here daughters were 6 and 8 years old and babysitted our son. Today one has a 18 year old daughter and they are both in their 40th ! Time surely flies by.

We had a nice afternoon and then I returned to my one eyed man, who had prepared supper and I wasn't hungry at all with all the cake I had eaten. Of course I made an effort and ate the Gnocchis he had prepared. But honnestly now I feel as if I could never eat anything anymore for a whole year !

A fun weekend. Hope Mr G gets better soon. Mine has a sore toe. How do you stay so thin, when you eat so much?

A fun-filled weekend you had Gatttina. Hope Mr G is better soon. My dh had various fevers from the hundreds of injections he got on Thursday and kept me awake on Friday night, Ha! Have a great week. Jo. PS Are you coming to East Africa to visit me?

You had fun - and cake and champagne, too :-) Poor Mr G - eye infections aren't much fun.

Poor Mr. G. Tell him I say to get well.
Gnocchi! Yum!

This sounds like such a fun meme, Gattina. Jo has told me about it, and I'd love to participate, but most of my weekends are too dull to blog about. Last night we had 30 seconds of excitement when something startled the deer who were here eating our ornamental crabapples. They bounded right past Lindy's window, one, two, three, four of them, and then they were gone. We certainly didn't get photos.
Sounds like you had a lovely weekend and your husband didn't. I know how it feels to have to wear an eye patch. It upsets my depth perception and I walk into walls and furniture.
I would rather eat gnocchi than cake!

Sharing a house with a rapid? One of those waterfall thingies? Did anyone get wet?

That's so sweet that your pirate prepaed gnocchi. Mmmm I like gnocchi.

Not sure what a rapid is but it does sound like you had a fun weekend.
