Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of August 6. 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.

What an exciting weekend ! As I came back from the UK on Thursday evening, there was quiet a lot to do in the household. Not that Mr. G. has behaved like a pig, but still there are things men just don't see or they just want to be blind.

Anyway I had to do laundry, that's not a big job in itself because I could chat on the phone during that time for example, but what always bothers me is to fold the whole stuff and put it away. People walk on the moon but are not able to invent a machine which puts clothes in wardrobes. It's a shame.

Besides that, there was also the grass which was so kind to grow during my absence and which Mr. G. couldn't mow because it had rained all the time and anyway he has difficulties to do it even when it's dry weather. As we have no goats and the cats don't eat enough grass, I mowed the lawn and had just finished when it started to rain again.

Sunday the day where you should rest, I cleaned the house, my cleaning lady is still on holidays. Never mind I also survived to that. The rest of the weekend I spent with blogging and still sorting out all my pictures. My camera got problems fortunately only the last two days of my holidays in Oxford and produced photos with stripes ! As I am against modern Art, it has to be repaired and I am without it for at least two weeks. I hope my spare camera will work well.

After supper Dominique came over for a "Midsomer Murder" evening, and instead of popcorn we had fresh strawberries which we enjoyed while Inspector Barnaby was solving 7 murders, according to Mr. G. who is our "crime" accountant. As in the last film there were only 2 murders, the average of 4 will be kept.

Must be more fun to watch all those murders now you have visited Inspector Morse Country.
On Saturday I went to see a Braas Band, they played 'Pomp and Circumstance' so I was happy.

Auntie E said...

A Barnaby and strawberry feast seems a very good way to finish the weekend:-)

I haven't joined in the fun. I just saw you in a comment somewhere else and came to find out who you are. Come and visit the blog of another German in exile, if you like.

You have so many blogs running at the same time that I need to spend some time to see which one I will want to visit most often.

Gruss aus Shropshire.

What a big job you did just arriving from England! Luckely you could relax with Barnaby!!! I just come back with Pierre from the building! The builder is on holiday and we paint the aspects! Mélissa went to Hungary yesterday and arrived in Budapest this morning! 22 h by bus! We are alone at home with Pierre!

Gattina, maybe you should also keep a goat as a pet. That way you won't have to mow the grass :)

Hi Gattina, Welcome back! I think a hippo would keep your grass mowed. Soon I'll post about them and our close proximity to them this weekend! I have never seen the Long Man. Incredible. I couldn't comment on that post so did it here! Enjoy reliving your holiday through the photos. (((Hugs))) Jo
