As I still not dare to walk too much with my twisted leg, but wanted to go out and take some pictures before I went gaga, I drove to Brussels where a Cartoon Festival took place !
I just arrived in time when the parade was prepared, and the huge cartoon figures were slightly moving in the wind. I was lucky the road in front of the Royal Palace wasn't closed yet for the traffic so I could drive slowly along the palace and take pictures of the Parade preparations. I didn't even have to get out of the car, which suited me very well when I saw the amount of people gathering there and walking in a crowd is quite tiring !
As it was still early when I had finished, I continued a little sightseeing trip through Brussels and saw some interesting buildings I had never seen before.
A rather funny decorated Pub
and the Brigittine's church, on which I have to investigate a little more, as it looked rather abandoned.
Then I drove home and worked on my Cartoon Parade pictures for a future post.
Nicole had finally taken the decision (after two years of hesitating) to buy a tablet as she realized that more and more vintage ladies have one and can deal with them although they are afraid of computers.
So she arrived Sunday afternoon with her new Asus tablet and I did the settings. I was quite proud of myself because my own Kindle tablet had been set up by my son and the settings are different.
We even managed a "selfie" !
My cats were not so delighted about her visit, because dog Charlie came too. The first thing he did was to empty all the cat bowls and then looked for Rosie's toy mice. But they were too small and disappeared in his big mouth, and he lost all interest quickly.
He then settled down for a nap and refused the cigarette I offered him. He is a non smoker. After he was gone, my cats appeared again, only Arthur hadn't been impressed by his presence and had continued his nap on my bed.
I hope she will get used to her tablet, at first it sounded so complicated to her !
