A lady who had visited our exhibition had asked me if I could paint her cats. I told her that it was ages that I hadn't painted a real cat portrait but I could do a composition of her cats on a photo. I showed her what I had done for "Feline Art" and she was enthusiastic ! She ordered a photo composition and that's what I did on Monday. Now I have to see if she likes the result.
2. For one day the weather was beautiful, the sun was shining and Nicole and I decided to go to the Waterloo battle field and inspect the ongoing works of the Hougoumont farm which once had been the headquarters of Wellington.
Compared to the last time I had visited this farm, the works had progressed a lot ! They have to hurry up if they want to be ready for the 200th anniversary celebration of the Waterloo battle in June next year.
3. Nicole's dog Charlie discovered the battle field now occupied by cows and ran around !
Good for him, but not for us, he found a nice place full of mud in which he rolled happily !
It was impossible to put him in my car in this state. The workers on the site were laughing their heads off ! I asked one if he didn't have a hose, he said yes and kindly washed poor Charlie until all the mud was gone ! I put a plastic bag on the back seat and a towel and drove with a wet Charlie home !
4. The next day it was raining but I badly needed to go out for my weekly shopping !
I was horrified when I saw that the shops had already put their Christmas decoration on display ! It seems to me that each year they are earlier, soon they will start at Easter !
5. In order to preserve my vintage beauty, I went to my favourite Indian shop to buy some cream.
It is such a beautiful place, I could spend hours in there. It doesn't look like a store at all but rather like a private house. All sales benefits go to Indian street children and orphanages.
