WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?



Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of February 19. 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.

On Saturday afternoon I pushed a deep sigh of relief because our two painters had finally finished their work and my two weeks of suffering were over !

When I waved them good bye, I didn't pull out a box of tissues to dry my tears, I couldn't even jump to the ceiling of joy, because I was rather exhausted ! The worst thing was the stress, having two men all the time around me and my own one didn't know where to put himself so I had to push him from one room to the other and finally "locked" him in our guest room where he was out of the way !



Our house during two weeks !



Fortunately in the evening I went with my neighbor to the theatre and we saw a hilarious two men show, making fun of the actual political situation. As you may have heard Belgium has the mondial record of having no government since June of last year. The audience was fully packed and people were laughing all the time.



On Sunday, which usually is a day where you shouldn't work, I started to put all our decorations in place, and Mr. G. balanced on ladders to nail the paintings on the wall. We just did the living room and even not entirely and my room. There are still the curtains to be hanged on the windows and the floors need to be cleaned. Each day a little bit !

In the evening, we watched 4 murders in an Inspector Barnaby TV movie, and then fell half dead in our beds, not murdered but tired.

Oh my! Hope you will have your house in order real soon! I remember that I didn't do that immediately and for months after I was looking for stuff. Even the cats got fed up with me!

Hey, the paint job looks wonderful! Once we can crack our windows open to vent the fumes, I want to start painting myself!

Wonderful, Gattina. But I understand how exhausted you must have been.

Sounds like you had a good weekend...

In Belgium you are lucky to have a Monarch; at least the King there can provide a modicum of continuity and stability ...

I am having email problems;I did read your email. I think I'm going to have to change email service providers...
