2. My holidays to Egypt are approaching, and I made the last shopping, it's a bit funny to buy sun cream when it's grey and cold. The afternoon I spent with Nicole. Her dishwasher didn't work in her new kitchen and she was very upset. She had spent a fortune with this kitchen and there was always little things which didn't work.
3. I wanted to send the St. Nicolas gift for grandson Toby to Amsterdam but our mail service is a real catastrophe ! I had to pay half of the value of the Globe and calender which was inside ! Crazy ! So I tried the Ups service, which so I had been told would work very well only 7.50 € for a parcel up to 15 kgs. Mine was not even 2. I subscribed filled in the form and was rejected. I tried it again, this time I should pay 20 € ! I thought they are crazy and tried again, and it didn't work, after 2 h I was so angry and exasperated that I gave up.
4. I started to pack all my accessoires for camera, tablet and computer, the different chargers, etc. I wonder when all companies finally come to an agreement to have just one model for the chargers !
I hope I have everything now.
5. When I arrived at my painting class, I noticed that I had forgotten all my stuff for painting ! Now I had the choice to return home which would have taken time or ask Mr. G. to bring me the things. As he had to go out anyway it seemed to be no problem. But of course each time I ask something I have a theatre play for free. First discussion which color had the little suitcase in which I transport my pastels and tubes and where it is. I explained in the garage behind the door. Which door he asked, (we only have one) I said behind the door to the basement. Which color has the suitcase as if I had a color range of suitcases behind the door. I said "blue". And the bag, where is the bag; I said, look it's normally on the suitcase. What is in it ? I said there is only one bag with one painting wrapped in a Newspaper. He grunted something and hang on. When he arrived he had brought me the suitcase, but not the red bag, he had chosen another one with all my paintings from the exhibition in it ! I pushed I big sigh and send him to a place where it is very warm and the devil with a fork is waiting. And then I draw a cat on a paper just to spend the time, anyway there was a lot to chat about our trip to Egypt.
After painting class we went for lunch to the "Lunch Garden" with our body guard who is permanently starving (like my cats)
He ate everything what "fell" from the table even a Brussels' sprout. Charlie loves vegetables !
