FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
On Easter monday, after Toby's breakfast we drove home in a rather bad weather, it rained and rained nearly the whole way from Amsterdam to Brussels. I had taken the above pictures of Toby before we left and had noticed that his first walking shoes have the brand mark "Gattino", which I found quiet funny. When we came home we were exhausted, and didn't do anything but unpacking and watching TV.
The next day I had a lot to do with sorting out the pictures I had taken and that took me almost the whole day. I had also done a little video about grandson Toby searching his Easter eggs which if you want you can see here
Anyway it was cold and grey and I had no desire to put my nose outside.
3. As I had lost my camera's spare battery I finally went to a big store which sells everything from household appliences, TVs, Computers and cameras plus accessoires, DVDs CDs etc. The young salesmen looked suspiciously at me, strolling through the Computer and Camera department instead as a brave housewife through the household stuff ! I finally found my battery and also bought a card reader as my old one didn't work very well anymore. And to make myself a pleasure I bought a wireless mouse ! I was fed up when travelling the cable was always in my way and I just can't use the notebook without mouse.
4. Some of my blog friends had told me that I had to absolutely see the film "Indian Palace" which I did together with two friends. It was hilarious and one of the best comedies I have seen ! So touching and still so plenty of humor.
If you want to see an extray of the film it's here
We lauged so much that our bellies hurt. After the film we went to a Pub and had a Kentucky salad and much fun.
5. We had celebrated Mr. G's birthday already in advance in Amsterdam but today at the right date we celebrated again. I invited Dominique our friend and neighbr, ordered 3 Sushi menus, which were delicous.Cat Pookie sat also at the table but behaved well.
Doesn't it look wonderful ? We enjoyed our meal very much.
I had bought two commedies to watch after supper and we watched one the very good French comedy "Nothing to declare" which Dominique and I had already seen in the Cinema, but Mr. G. never. He laughed the whole film through. The story happens on 1 January 1993, when two customs officers, one Belgian and the other French, learn of the future closure of their small customs post because of the European Union.
Both a hereditary francophobe and an over-zealous Belgian customs officer, are forced to create the first Franco-Belgian mobile squad. This movie had such a success that in 8 weeks this film reached over 8 millions spectators.
We had spent a nice evening.
