WHAT DID YOU DO LAST WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of May 7. 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 I went to Brussels center, because I knew that there was quiet a lot of animation going on. I wanted to take the opportunity to exercise with my new little Sony camera, as my old one fell of the car and the screen broke.
First I went to the Grand'Place where a "Scarecrow" Exposition took place. Of course I visited this exposition and will write about it in another post. I tried the "Panorama" mode for the first time, it's not yet perfect, but the result is not too bad either.
Going through the Gallery near the Grand'Place, I saw a very beautiful entrance and thought it was a Nightclub or something like that. At the entrance were two huge acquariums and the light was dim. Believe it or not it was a public Toilet (!!!) When I went in there I saw Madame Wee wee sitting there and asking for 0.50 cents ! What a nice attraction for tourist's natural needs !
On the Grand'Place in Brussel's City hall a marriage was such celebrated so I had a quick look on that too.
Outside the Grand'Place on the Place Sablon a photo shooting was going on, which of course I watched too for a while and also shot some pictures.
Being still a cheerful temporary widow, in the evening I rented a movie which should have been a French commedy with Catherine Deneuve, it was so stupid, that I regretted my good old "Midsummer murders" !
Sunday morning I went to the Waterloo market and bought myself a Thai meal, in order not to cook on Mother's Day.
The afternoon I spent with Ilona and a bottle of Champagne to celebrate Mother's day, she was so happy that her daughter had come to visit her, which was the first time after 8 years ! There was some misunderstanding between them which is settled now. I had got a phone call from my son, he had to represent his little son for the first Mother's Day of his mom in Amsterdam. Secretely I had expected some flowers, but apparently sons are less sensible than daughters because Ilona all she got was an sms from her son ! So I can't complain. We had a very nice Mother's day afternoon in the sun.
