FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants here
1. The whole country is in heaven after 3 weeks of rain and cold weather the sun shines and we have summer temperatures. So on Monday together with my friend Nicole we decided to play "Holidays".
First we went to the Waterloo swimming pool which had its roof removed, the water was warm and as there is also a little park to rest, people were sitting on the grass. It's very well organized, there is even a line for grandmas like us who don't like water in their faces and swim with a stretched out neck like swans (an insult for the swans, sorry)
After that we were hungry and ate this delicious plate, was just appropriate for the warm weather. We could sit outside they have a nice garden with a pond.
2. Between booking my trip to first Stonehenge and then Eastbourne, printing and looking up train schedules, I also had some personal paper work to do, as Mr. G. uses me as secretary, since he has no one anymore ! Rather stressed I decided to go back to the swimming pool and after one hour of swimming I felt much better.
3. It was the same on Wednesday so before I started to pull out all clothes I need for my trip to the English coast, I returned swimming to feel relaxed and not to forget anything. The trouble is I have to take warm things along besides summer clothes ! You never know how the weather will be in the next days !
I arrived early morning in London, it only takes 2 h from Brussels to get there
From now on I will do a diary of my holidays !
What a welcome ! Music and banners to greet and pick up the athletes which had been in the same train as me, I hadn't seen them as I almost missed the Eurostar, I had forgotten that I should have been at the check in half an hour before ! You and your luggage are scanned just like in an airport, because we go under the sea through the tunnel.
I ran behind a man who pulled my suitcase and just could jump in the last wagon !
What a start !
But I arrived, could take my coach to Stonehenge and will start my holiday diary tomorrow !
