I told Mr. G. that I will buy a new one. He was delighted ! He loves to install programs and make it work. I could buy a new computer every week !
2. First thing I did on Monday morning I went to the shop and bought a new one !
and here it is, a little Asus ! Arthur presents it to show the size. The only color they had, was red and that was even better ! As Mr. G. was playing cards on Monday afternoons, I turned around the unpacked computer, hold it in my hands and found it so light ! Almost like a tablet.
3. Patience is not one of my qualities, so I thought I just will switch it on to see how it works. And as it started with showing instructions, I just continued, it went on without any problem. When Mr. G. came back he made eyes like my cat Rosie when she sees a mouse and was a little disappointed that I had already started. Then he stole it away from me and fumbled around the whole evening while I was watching a film on TV.
4. Besides some shopping I was busy to install all my files and folders into my new jewel ! The gardener came and trimmed the bushes around the house, autumn is on the doorsteps and it was great time ! With our rollercoaster weather everything has grown so quickly and there was a lot to cut.
In the evening I went with Nicole to the cinema and we watched a very funny French movie with the title "Une famille à louer" (A family to rent). It was the story of a very depressed, very rich man who didn't know what to do the whole day since he had stopped working. The idea came from his butler who suggested him to rent family to get over his depression. The result was hilarious, two noisy children, a messy house and a beautiful mom. Of course there was a happy end and we had a very nice time and laughed a lot. After the cinema we had a drink in a pub.
5. Summer holidays are over and school has started in Belgium. For me too, after two months my painting class started again.
We all were happy to see each other again, although some of my classmates I had met during the holidays. Our coffee break was very long, because we had so many news to exchange !
Nicole and I went to our travel agency and booked 2 weeks in "my" hotel where I go since 7 years for end November to get some sunshine to help us over the dark winter months.
Late afternoon I drove my neighbor to the hospital for her monthly shot in her eyes. Her view doesn't improve, but doesn't get worse neither and that's for her good news.
