FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
While doing our acqua gym we all noticed that this year the trees are still very green and it doesn't look like autumn at all. We have a beautiful view out of the windows of the swimming pool and we can all follow the seasons.
Nevertheless the garden had to be prepared for winter and we had all bushes and the hedge trimmed by our young moroccan gardener. He is really a very brave guy. Can you imagine that he can't read and write and goes to morning school now to learn it. He must be around 35 !
2. As usual after exactly 6 weeks I needed to go to the hairdresser to have my hair cut. I looked like a witch without broom. Now it's better.
Finally I also decorated my "season" basket at the entrance for autumn
3. I went with Dominique to the cinema and we saw "Johnny English Reborn" with Rowan Atkinson.
It was a parody of the James Bond films. We laughed the whole film long !
4. A girlfriend which we hadn't seen a long time before we were invited to her mother last week, visited us and we had tea together. I had worked with her Indian husband for 10 years and we were both pregnant at the same time. Her son is 4 days younger than ours. We talked about India and the social changements starting there slowly, slowly. There still is a huge gap between very poor and very rich !
This weekend we will have our yearly exposition, so we were all very busy by choosing the paintings and hang them up. Of course there also was a lot of chatting and we had a lot of fun. There are some final touches to be made and it will be ready.
