1. Monday was my last day in Eastbourne at the English south east coast.

I took the bus and went to the seafront for the last time (at least this year) and sat on a bench, watching people, the sea and enjoying the fresh air. It was a beautiful day.


We went to a nice Pub to have our good bye meal together with the neighbour Ivonne, and I was slightly "offended" that the waitress brought us the senior menu immediately, instead of faking that we didn't look like seniors at all ! The food was good but as usual the portions were enormous, compared to what we usually get in other European countries.  Ivonne, now over 70 knew this Pub from her childhood, admired the extension and all the changes which had been done.


Pousse-Pousse was my replacement cat, she was the queen of the house. Now that my friend is a widower, she is at least a companion to him and he loves her very much. For her he gets up at 5 or 6 in the morning just like my Ladyship wants, to give her breakfast and then sighing goes to bed again.

4. On my way back to Brussels I stopped in London and met Wendy from Wendy's Waffel in St. Pancras station and she took me to Russel Park not so far away. The sun was shining and the park beautiful and we had lunch together, I my beloved baked potato and she a sandwich. It was really nice and we didn't run out of subjects to talk about !

I think it is wonderful to meet new blogfriends life !


I had made approx 800 pictures, which I now have to sort out and put in folders.

Fortunately the date is on the pictures, otherwise I wouldn't know where it had been taken ! I had been in Gretna Green,  on a steam train in Bo'ness and Kinnel railway, Edenburgh, Edenburgh Tattoo,  in the Trossachs, doing a cruise on Loch Katrine, Moffat, and Gretna Gateway Outlet village and at the end 5 days in Eastbourne to rest !

Now I am home again for a while !

Tomorrow I will go back to Brussels. The last two days were very nice !

We were invited at friends and  went for lunch together. I had this enormous baked potato. Then we sat outside in the garden and had coffee. Lilli the white German shepherd was happy to have company and being brushed as you can see. It looked as if it had snowed in the garden !

It was the last day of the Airshow and Doug's daughter with her 3 children and husband and his son with his girlfriend came to watch. The house was full and we had a lot of fun. I forgot to take pictures !
