2. I had met an English couple at the Brussels Midi Market who had told me that a new restaurant had opened in Waterloo ! A typical English one : Fish & Chips !
Dominique and I tried it out, we were greeted by the Queen and were observed by the Beatles ! The fish was very good, but the chips too soft it didn't taste like England ! I told the guy a young man from Manchester that he should improve his chips, he couldn't pretend that they were OK when I told him that I had made a tour around the UK and had eaten Fish & Chips a little everywhere.
3. It seems that autumn is moving in slowly, but it was still enough warm to take a sunbath in Ilona's garden, where we enjoyed the sunshine.
4. My neighbor's granddaughter will spend 6 months in Swansea in the UK with the Erasmus Programme (European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) It is a European Union (EU) student exchange programme established in 1987. Erasmus+, or Erasmus Plus, is the new programme combining all the EU's current schemes for education, training, youth and sport.

I think this is a great idea and allows students of all European countries and speaking all different languages are being able to know each other better ! She also will improve her English at the same time. Her mother came over to ask me to book the train and bus tickets for her, because she had difficulties with the English language. I did it for her and she was happy and the daughter too !
5.We are still without teacher in our painting class, the one we had died suddenly from a generalized cancer during the summer holidays. It was so sudden that we still can't believe it. The new one should have started today, we know her all she was a classmate, but she didn't show up. It doesn't bother me being without teacher and I don't need one anymore I just paint for fun. I started a new painting and hope it will be finished for our exhibition end October.
Our 16 year old cat Pookie can't jump anymore on the sink from where she used to drink running water from the tap. I have to lift her up so that she can drink.
A blogfriend suggested that I buy a cat fountain, I had never seen one. I googled and found this model, so I ordered it right away in the hope that she will leave us in peace ! Cats can be so stubborn !
