The result of the hopping around in the pool, made me fall asleep after lunch in front of Poirot on TV !
2. The Waterloo city had invited all seniors for a movie. I first had lunch with Nicole in a Chinese restaurant and then we all gathered at the entrance of the cinema.
It's still the good old cinema which I have always known since we live here, only meanwhile it had been modernized. It is rather small and really cosy. We all got a little box of Belgian chocolate and then watched the movie. It was really very funny a French comedy, the story of a couple who wanted to divorce but none of them wanted the three children ! It ended with a happy end.
3. There was an exposition of young painters from Azerbaidjan. I had to google first to see where this country was ! It is near Russia, ever since the Soviet Union fell apart, there are so many new countries !
The exposition was in the old stables of a castle in Waterloo, which they had demolished, and had only kept the stables to transform it into an exposition center. It looks nice with its old beams.
The paintings were very colorful and we really liked it.
4. I went to Ilona's again to install Skype on her tablet, it was impossible. Now she has to come to us, Mr. G. has the same tablet, to see why her tablet refuses Skype. We gave up and spent the afternoon chatting together.
5. During our painting class, it started to snow so much that we all thought we would get stuck when driving home. Coming out of the building, it had all melted and there was only a little bit of white on the grass. Fortunately none of us had left the class before the end.
The Newspapers published today an incredible printing error on a official card from the Royal Palace. Beginning December the Queen Fabiola died. In their thank you note, instead of writing "Fabiola" they printed "Paola" who is the Queen and mother of the actual King Philip and still very cheerfully alive !
"Their Majesties King Albert II and Queen Paola thank you wholeheartedly for the comforting words received following the death of Her Majesty Queen Paola" which of course made the joke of the day.
