2. It was cold and grey again but I still hoped it would clear up. Nicole and I decided to take Charlie for a walk if the weather would allow it.
but it didn't ! It started to rain. Poor Charlie has an eczema between the toes and had to suffer a treatment. He was very brave except for the little bootie he was reluctant because it disturbed him and he wanted to take it off.
3. I had to do some shopping our fridge was empty after having fed 3 hungry men. Imagine that for the cheese fondue they had eaten 1.600 kg of cheese, one kg of broccolis, 500 g of little potatoes and 5 thick slices of bread ! Toby and I were orphans against them, although he has a very good appetite too !
4. I had to go to a shop near Ilona's so I popped in for a cup of tea. It was very cosy, she had lightened her wood burner and some candles. Outside the wind blow and the rain hit against the windows and before I left I took this pictures of autumn pleasures !
Where to put all these leaves ? and there are more and more every day !
5. I woke up with a running nose and my throat hurt a bit, apparently I joined all the others who have the same right now with this changing weather. I swallowed my pills and put spray in my nose and lay down and felt lousy.

I don't know if twists of fate exists but I had one ! I wanted to call a friend named Monique and instead I dialled Monica, which was written just underneath. I thought that Mr. G. had translated the name into Italian. To my big surprise I heard a voice in German announcing her name. I got a shock ! I had dialled the number of my cousin, the only relative I still have, but I didn't even know that her telephone n° was still in our phone list ! She is the daughter of my father's sister and we grew up together just after the war when we all lived in my father's mother's house ! She was as surprised as I and then we started to chat ! We hadn't talked to each other since at least 15 years, not because we didn't want to, but we were both so busy and finally forgot and then time goes by so quickly. Since years I had wanted to call her but it always had been the wrong moment and it had been the same for her. Unfortunately we couldn't talk for a long time because workers were arriving in her house and so we promised each other to call us back ! There are so many events to catch up ! Her husband was the inventor of the Brita Filter which has become famous all over the world. Now he is retired of course and their son has taken over.
