WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of February 5th. 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.
The weekend started very nicely because I went to the movies together with two friends and her son, to watch the latest French comedy "Rien à déclarer" (Nothing to declare) which already had an enormous success since the movie came out last week. The cinema was packed and we laughed the whole film long !
In fact it was not a stupid comedy it went much farer and was very subtile concerning racism. It was the story of a Belgian customs officer who hated the Frenchs with all his heart. The film played at the time when there was still a border between France and Belgium and which had been abolished because of the European Union.
The funniest thing was that part of the film was done a couple of streets farer from were I live. I remember last year I had seen a stop sign saying that a film was made in this street, but thought it was a publicity for the city. Of course I went there today to have a look and find out in which house the Belgian officer "lived". But I didn't remember exactly, they all look so very much the same. (on the picture, the left officer is the Belgian and the right the French)
Besides this little walk, I couldn't go much outside. I went to the market in Braine l'Alleud which is the next little town after Waterloo and bought some apples and two collars for my cats. It was so windy almost stormy that my beret which usually is like nailed on my head was blown away and I had to run after it. Some people were really amused and laughed when they saw me running behind my red beret rolling fast on the street.
As on Monday we expect a painter who will paint all rooms and doors in our house, I already started to take off my cats and other decorations.
This is the first cat pile.
My neighbor came also over for a cup of coffee, tomorrow I have to drive her again to the hospital for her eye treatment.
