FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE

1. Our usual aqua gym trainer was on holidays and we had a young man as replacement. He did completely different exercises, and for some of us it was hard to follow. But he was real good. The result was, that after lunch while I watched "Escape to the country" I escaped into dreamland and when I woke up, there was a game on TV and 2 h were gone. I don't know where.

2. Finally I had the courage to fold the laundry which was still in the basket since Sunday. I think a Tsetse fly has bitten me, I feel so tired, must be this roller coaster weather, one day warm and sunny one day cold and rain.

3. Nicole came with Charlie, first thing he does is sniff around in the whole house, and looking for cat food, sometimes I forget to put the bowls on the table where he can't reach them, but sometimes I forget and he never forgets anything ! He even knows where I keep his toys, a tennis ball and a squeaking Hamburger and takes them out immediately. We had a coffee together and talked about our forthcoming holidays in Turkey, the date approaches, we leave on Sunday.

4. Again I forgot to put on my shoes and went in my slippers to the Indian shop to buy my creams. Fortunately they don't really look like slippers. Of course I couldn't resist a pair of earrings which I bought too.

5. After our painting class 5 of us went to the Asiatic restaurant and had a delicious lunch. They have round tables with a round  turning pane in the middle, so it is very easy to serve yourself. As usual we had a lot of fun and a lot of food, as it is an all you can eat buffet, and we stayed there more than 2 1/2 h ! When I came home I put Oscar the lawn mower robot on the grass and watched him working. I still was so full from our lunch, that I only ate two apples for supper. For Mr. G. I had taken a "take away" plate because they do that too.



Sunday noon Nicole and I are off to Marmaris in Turkey, to get some hot weather and sunshine ! The sea is surrounded by mountains and apparently it is a beautiful place. I hope the terrorists will stay in Brussels, where tourists are afraid of to go because it is a dangerous place ! The Belgians go working there ....

So  next time I will report from Marmaris, if there is not a little terrorist sitting on the line !

Oh that Charlie is so clever. Who takes care of him while Nicole is away with you? I look forward to reading about your visit to peaceful Turkey!

I had to laugh when I though of you wandering off to the shop in your slippers! Have a wonderful relaxing holiday.

Tamago said...

Oh well, I see people in clothes looking like pajamas in store sometimes - so wearing slippers isn't so bad :-)
Turkey is one of the places I'd love to visit some day. I hope you have a fun and safe trip!

Hope your vacation in Turkey is terrorist-free!

It's nice to have a light or "leftover" dinner after a big lunch.

I don't know what Chinese call it, but we call the rotating thing in the middle of the table, a Lazy Susan. Have fun in Turkey and watch out for wolf whistling Turkish men.

I looked up Marmaris on the internet map. Yes, you should have wonderful weather and lots of beaches there.
I like Charlie's attitude. Go straight to what you want!

Susanne said...

What a clever boy Charlie is. The area for your holidays looks absolutely lovely! Have a wonderful time and get re-energized!

I hope you are having a wonderful time -- can't wish you Bon Voyage as I am late coming to visit and you've already left. Enjoy!!!!

I'm late getting to posts this week so by now you will be in Turkey. I hope you're having a lovely time.

It sounds like you had a good workout since you followed it with a nap! Does Oscar do a nice job of mowing your grass?
