This meme helps you to remember what you did on the weekend of 30 June

During my holidays in Tunisia my old Nokia mobile phone broke down, and gave up its soul. Fortunately I was still reachable through Dominque's mobile and I also had my notebook with me and could call via Skype.

First thing on Saturday was looking for a new one. I wanted to have one which you can close so that you don't have to lock the keyboard. I needed a very simple one because I only use it as telephone and for sending sms. I don't need anything else. The only model available which closes was the Samsung E 2530 mobile. There were only black once, I wanted a red one. So I looked through all the little boxes and ... found the only one in red called "La fleur" which means the flower.

It looks very elegant and has far more options than I need. Even Bluetooth and I can take photos, which I never do, and all kind of other stuff. It works well and I am happy with it !

Dominique had also a little Exposition in her living room, of the pictures the children painted in her painting class which she does every Saturday morning.

click on the pictures to biggify !

It was interesting to see what beautiful paintings these little girls have done, they are 8 to 11 years old. Some paintings are better as the once I see in my painting group with the old ladies ! The proud parents were also present of course.

Dominique's mother was there too, she just had celebrated her 90th birthday, she really looks very good. She raised 5 boys and one girl ! She was chatting with a neighbor, who is at least 20 years younger. Dominique explained the paintings to a Daddy.

In the afternoon I went to Nicole and together we sorted out the pictures we had taken in Tunisia. She had some I didn't have and she took all mine. The sun was shining and we could sit on her terrace and have a coffee.

Sunday where everybody should rest I did my laundry while I also answered emails. The only thing I had to do was to fold it and put it in the closets ! Hard work !

Mr. G. had a friend visiting him, so I escaped to Ilona so that they could have a man to man talk and I had a lot to report to her about our trip to Tunisia. She showed me pictures of her little great granddaughter ! and I am just a grandma at the same age !

Mine is up too. I also need a new cell phone, but it is hard to find one that is not a smart phone. I do not need a smart phone, only one that works! Here they want to sell you the big expensive phones and the data packages.
