1. School holidays are finally over, and we got back to normal life ! It started with the decision that I would swap my Monday's aqua gym classes to Wednesday's because I had realized that sometimes I want to have a long weekend. I had missed 3 courses, which I had to catch up and I started with a recuperation on Monday. It was nice to see all the girls again and they regretted that I wouldn't come anymore on Mondays, but with two of them I will keep in touch anyway.
The weather is so awful that lots of people have a cold. It's very humid and I don't know anymore how a blue sky looks like. For once I really have no feel like going out, even my weekly shopping at Picard* which is 5 min by car away was too much. Anyway I have quite a lot to do with my blogs and pictures because a new year has started.
3. I had to go to the groomer with cat Kim, she was again full of knots and she doesn't allow us to brush her.
She meowed just a bit in the car, but then was behaving like an angel and didn't even move when her groomer answered the phone and took an appointment. Now she weighs certainly half a kilo less, with all the hairs which had come out. We returned quickly home out of the humid grey weather.
4. Nicole had invited our painting teacher and another girl from our painting course for coffee and cake.Of course we had a lot to talk and the afternoon went by very quickly !
I just had put on my coat when the phone rang, it was Mr. G and he asked if I had forgotten to come home, we laughed because everybody knew that he is hungry at 7 pm sharp ! Just like dog Charlie and our cats. At 7 pm I was home and we had supper together, as usual !
After supper we watched the News and an Inspector Barnaby and then I went to bed. The last picture I saw before I switched off the light, was Arthur already sleeping deeply !
5. My painting class has also started again, we were not very many because some were still on holidays and others were ill. We couldn't paint very long, because the room was needed for an official meeting. At 11 we went home;
My 18 year old Pookie doesn't go out anymore so her claws became too long, I don't dare to cut them myself therefore I go to Kim's groomer who does it in 5 min. Now as Pookie is deaf, she loves to sit in the car and look out of the window.
She really enjoys the ride, and I wonder if I don't have to drive her around a bit, so that she can see a little more then our street and garden. There were two small dogs in the room, when Pookie got her claws cut, the dogs barked and pulled at the leashes, but Pookie looked at them, I could bet she smiled, and didn't even move !
The rest of the day we spend inside, the weatherman has announced a storm and snow, for the moment it's only windy ! I hope he will be wrong as usual. On top, all 4 cats haven't washed behind their ears, which is a sign for forthcoming rain !
