WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
This meme helps you to remember what you did on the weekend of 7 July
Saturday morning when it had stopped raining I picked up our supper from the Sushi shop, to celebrate my birthday with Mr. G. and as I had to wait a bit, I took the opportunity to look in some stores as there are "Sales" in Belgium. Sales are only authorized twice a year, once for the winter season starting on Jan 2, and once for the summer starting on July 1st. This lasts during the whole month. Of course the first days the shops are packed with people and they even wait early morning that the shop opens ! I am not a boutique fan, but I had a look and found a nice blouse to wear for my birthday party.
The sun came out and I worked in the garden, which I hate, but there were so many weeds on the little graveyard where all our animals are burried, so that it was really necessary especially as I have got these two cat vases from my son for my birthday. They are in ceramic and very heavy. Now it looks nice.
In the afternoon a friend of Mr. G. visited us and we could sit the whole afternoon on the patio and chatted together. Our Sushi meal was delicious !
On Sunday morning my birthday "table" looked like this. A cute bag for the beach and a wooden cat from my friend Ilona, and the new mobile from Mr. G.
At 3.30 Dominique had invited my friends and prepared everything for me to have a nice birthday party without any work ! She ordered me to put my feet under the table and not to move ! It was really very sweet of her.
I had put all the gifts together on her desk, bracelets, another cat, and Belgian Chocolate in a heart shaped bowl and the Skype telephone.
She had baked a wonderful cake which tasted delicious.
We ate the cake with 2 bottles of Champagne, Mr. G. joined us for a while after he had watched his Formular 1, and then he escaped after having eaten two pieces of cake, 6 women who chatted all together was too much for him. Normally we were 7 but Nicole couldn't come.
The party lasted until 6.30 and then I invited Dominique for a Pizza at home, we weren't very hungry and ended the day in company with Inspector Barnaby and his Midsomer murders.
