WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of July 16. 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.
There was one shower free day this weekend so I hurried up to mow the lawn before it got wet again. Dominique did the same in her garden and during a break we decided to give us a treat in form of going out in the evening to see the new film with Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks :
It was an absolutely great movie and we both enjoyed it so much. We had a lot of fun and laughed all the time. It's not a stupid comedy at all, in my opinion it's even very educative and there is so much truth in it too !
The weather was sitting in a roller coaster we had temperatures from 25° (77 F) dropping down to 13 °C (55 F) all in one day during a few hours. We didn't want to put the heating on so I made a nice fire in our chimney, which warmed our old bones nicely and on top it's so cosy. Besides the fact that it should be summer in July.
While I was watching TV in the evening I noticed that I had put on two different slippers. Probably according to the weather changes, one for very hot weather and one for cold summer days. Mr. G. wasn't even surprised he is used to worse.
The afternoon I spent with my friend Ilona who, had a tooth pulled out and needed some distraction after the extraction.
Sunday morning I quickly went to our market in Waterloo, just between two showers I had to buy a table cloth for my friend in England and also two Thai chicken and noodles plates for supper.
In the evening we had Midsomer murders' time and as Dominique is a Barnaby "fan" too, she came over and we watched the film together. This time our accountant Mr. G. told us that the average of 3 murders was kept. There was a lot of suspense, no blood streaming from the TV screen and no gun shooting either. Inspector Barnaby solves the crimes with his brain.
Even when he has to go into a house with an open door, he never dances and fiddles around with a gun at each corner of a room, as it is always the case in the American crime series.
We were all satisfied with the outcome of the film and went to bed.
Not for long, at around 3 am I woke up because of a big boom in the house, it was Mr. G. who once again has fallen out of his bed ! I found him sitting on the floor with the bedlinnen around his neck looking very surprised. He had dreamed that he had jumped with a bike over a hedge, to show a friend (he hadn't seen for at least 45 years) that his bike was better than the one of his friend ! I think I have to start learning dream interpretation ! Fortunately he didn't break anything, climbed into his bed once I had made it again and slept like a baby.
I grumbled silently wondering when he started with talking and gesticulating during his sleep, he had never done this before. I really wonder what makes it happen that one who seldom moved in his sleep, suddenly behaves like a windmill and talks like a politician while he is sleeping ? Before he only snored like a chainsaw.
