1. It's time that this cold and wet weather stops ! Everybody is so tired, me included. After aqua gym I always fall asleep watching a short movie, and the worst is when I wake up I think I haven't slept at all, but the film was finished !

2. I had to go to the hospital for a check up, fortunately everything was OK. There were so many people ill in this time, lots of colds and flues it looked worse than our midi market on Sunday morning.

3. My not yet ex neighbour Dominique stopped shortly by to say a short hello, it was to tell us if our common cleaning lady has to come to her house or not because Mr. G. has to switch off the alarm. Since end November she lives now with her fiancé to take care of him because he had fallen from a tree and broken his spine. Fortunately after surgery he isn't paralysed and has almost completely recovered ! What her friends are reproaching her is that she disappeared and only calls when she needs something. Some people have a strange idea of friendship. We know each other over 15 years and have undertaken so many things together !

4. The bad weather is ideal for Museum's visits ! Chantal, I and another friend went to see the large and exclusive exhibition on Egyptian sarcophagi, showing lots of items and  scenes of the restoration process and learned about ancient Egyptian funerary rituals.

Behind glass you could see the scientists  working on a sarcophagi with the help of computers, scanners etc. It was very interesting to see. At the exit stood a camera which allowed you to make selfies. First you had to choose the background, then wait until the picture was taken and then you could send it per email to your address which I did of course. I will write about this exhibition in another post.

5. Our painting class had lost quite a lot of members, for different reasons, so we made a bit of publicity and today we had quite a lot of newcomers. They all seemed to be very sympathetic. We also celebrated Chantal's birthday and she had brought two delicious cakes for this event.

I then had lunch with Nicole in our "Lunch Garden" the lunch was very good a steak with salad and chips, the classical Belgian meal and for once the steak was very tender and didn't stem from an old cow, rather from a teenager.

A waitress who cleaned the tables asked if she could give a bone to  Charlie who was bravely laying under the table. Nicole said yes and Charlie got his bone !

Was he happy ! He ate it all, we didn't even have to clean the floor !

Ah, a photo of you and two friends with the three of you looking like normal people of you age, unlike an absent friend.

Those exhibits at the museum look interesting! Love the photo of you and your friends :-)

There aren't any good museums around here, probably because the weather is better.

What a nice exhibition ! And the pic is so cool ! I didn't know Dominique lives really with her fiancé ! She lost the reason with love ! This is a typical effect of love ! And you can't do anything ! She is now on an other planet ! But Charly stay in the basic reality ! He loves bones ! And don't lost the north !

Please say you will include a single photo of those beautiful cats from Egypt. I would love to see them a bit better.

The weather here has been really nice. Still cold, but usually the sun comes out a great deal. Proper spring weather and the birds think so too!

Egyptian funerary rites are so interesting, I think. I hope you get some sunshine this week. I can send some over if you like as long as you send us some rain.
