WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of June 4. 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.
It was very hot this weekend up to 30° which is very unusual in Belgium for this time of the year. Inside the country you get the impression that there is no air so when it is so warm it's suffocating.
Our houses of course are not equipped with airconditionning, as in "normal" years it's never so hot or only for a few days in the whole summertime. So I was happy to drive in my aircondioned car, my neighbor Vivi to the hospital again for her shot in the left eye.
I was so impressed by the machines they have today to check your eyes that I took this pictures. A scanner shows your eyeball all around ! It's amazing.
I could have sat in my car the whole day but of course that wasn't possible. After a little shopping to buy the ingredients for my pasta salad, I spent the rest of the day hanging in front of my notebook in the garden observing the cats and answering emails.
While watching TV I opened all windows to get a cool draft through the house, but it was still warm. In the night we had a thunderstorm and heavy rain, so the next day it had cooled down a bit.
The rest of my time I was busy with checking timetables for trains to the UK, Bed & Breakfast accomodations in an Oxford University where I want to stay for 2 nights when I come back from Eastbourne end July.
Mr. G. had to take cat Pookie to the vet, she has a carbuncle under her tail, poor thing. Now we have to give her two antibiotic pills per day that's quiet a work or more a battle !
