6 May 2011


more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.

1. A big event ! A hurrican rushed through the house because Mr. G. had travel fever and was busy to collect his things he would put in his suitcase to take the plane and stay with his sister in Italy. It was the first time after at least 5 years he had decided to go there of his own ! Wherever I hid, he found me to ask if this would be OK to take along !

2. The day of departure ! I got up at 4.30 to drive him to the airport. We were far too early, but at least he calmed down once I had thrown let him out of the car and he disappeared in the Airport. In my not updated GPS this new airport was a white field, and the indications were so bad to find the highway back to Waterloo, that following its instructions I landed in a small path in a field and could admire the resting cows after their breakfast. Finally Mrs. GPS got me out of there and on the right way and I savely arrived home where I collapsed on the sofa with a cup of coffee.

3. Being alone in our house for the first time since he has retired I was celebrating my cheerful temporary widowhood with myself (after 41 years of marriage I am allowed to say that) and besides blogging just did nothing not even looking on my watch ! I ate when I was hungry and I didn't cook ! I went to eat in the "Lunch Garden" where you have a self service and can choose what you want. After my supper sandwich I watched a very romantic movie where love was lost and found again and a big happy end.


I love spring but unfortunately the garden starts to love it too, so I had to mow the lawn before the grass reached my knees. Even cat Kim found freshly mowed grass very nice. Which gave me the opportunity to have a long chat with Dominique over the hedge.


Again another birthday celebration in our painting group, our paintings didn't progress very much this day !

Enjoy your temporary widowhood! I am doing that too, Mr Mar left yesterday, he is sailing until Monday. Watched a Jane Austen film last night, with a huge pot of tea and cookies. Wonderful.

Ah, gps, don't you just love them. Mine sends me onto existing roads but with a weak bridge or a low bridge, which would be fine if you were driving a car, but with a coach it's not that obvious! I never got stuck on a small road in the fields though. Only small roads on housing estates (which are even worse because of all the parked cars...)

Enjoy your time on your own!

Isn't it the best when you manage to spend some time alone? I can also say that after 27 years of marriage (today) right?

Have a wonderful time. I NEVER get time alone. Oh how I would enjoy a few days of it!
