Nicole wanted to get rid of her kitchen furniture, because she had ordered a new one, and Chantal is expert in selling things not only on eBay but also on local sites.
I had bought a new ball for Charlie, and he had already found it before we could sit, I have a few toys for him besides the logs under the open fire. This kept him busy the whole afternoon, while we had to deal with the squeaks of that ball.
2. It is still summerly warm, cold in the mornings and in the afternoon up to 24° ! So I have to dress like in winter and then take off layer by layer ! I went to Nicole to help her with the advertising for her kitchen furniture and we first could sit on her terrace before it cooled down and we had to go inside. Now the advertising is done and she has to wait.
3. I had ordered an inside outside thermometer, which arrived and of course I had ordered the wrong one. There was no unit to put outside but a cable. Impossible to let hang out the cable through the window, can't live with an open window the whole year. I called them and they told me that I just have to give it back at a special pick up point and I would get the money back.
4. I went to the pick up point the next day and they didn't know anything about it. I insisted that they called, the girl who was responsible, was really a little stupid, but at the end I was told that I need a return document. As I was already in the city center, and it was so warm, I bought myself a nice ice cream and sat on a bench. There are benches all along the main street for tired shoppers.
After the ice cream and watching people, I had a coffee on the terrace of a café and met the director of the theater where we have a season ticket. He was hanging in his seat and seemed to sleep ! But he must have heard me because suddenly he woke up and excused himself, he told me that he is now retired, doesn't play anymore and that he comes here each day to sit in the sun ! It's a pity that he is too old now, because he was excellent as actor.
5. In our painting group a man showed up and started to look at our paintings, made compliments and went from one to the other. I had never seen this guy and the others neither. It turned out that he came for an insurance from a Christian Union and started to make publicity for his party ! Poor man, he never thought that he would face 15 suffragettes, who told him that we were all kind of religions or no religion at all, that we are insured and that we are artists and don't want to have to do anything with the stupid politicians he praised. We were so nice to him that he escaped quickly and we laughed our heads off for at least half an hour. I think the guy will have nightmares !
