FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. I finally managed to give a mini birthday party for Mr. G's 70th birthday. On his birthday 3 weeks ago, I was sick and when I came back from France for Easter, he was sick. This was then on Easter Monday where our best friends and neighbors came over for a glass of Champagne. It was the first day he felt a little better.
He was very happy with a new Ferrari for his collection and the Tiramisu Dominique had prepared for him.
She even managed to make a 70 with the candles !
2. Two days before I left France my camera fell out of Claudie's car when I opened the door of and the screen was broken.
It was quiet new only 3 years old and had been working so good. I was really sad. It had accompagnied me through Turkey, Morocco and Egypt, the UK and all other excursions I did and now I had to say good bye.
As soon as the shops were open again after Easter I bought a new one, nearly the same, with a little more capacity and options, even smaller as my previous already small one, and very handy, ideal for my paparazzi purposes. Now I have to get used to the new one. Fortunately I had a spare camera so I could continue to take pictures, while I was on holidays, but they are not so good of course.
4. I was very busy with all the photos I had taken in Southern France to sort them out and put them into folders, and after 2 weeks of school holidays my painting class started again, but I have to admit that we didn't paint very much because we had too much to chat about our 2 weeks holidays.
and today I will be here, watching THE wedding on TV, the report is starting at 9 am our time which is 8 am in London.
