Mr. G's friend from his Whist card playing had invited us to a Chinese restaurant.
Unfortunately we couldn't use the fancy garden seats, it was far too cold. Inside it was very cosy and we spend a nice time together.
I had Peking duck with noodles, Mr. G. Scampis and our friend duck à l'orange. As desert we both had a Dame Blanche (vanilla and chocolate ice with whipped cream) and Chinese donuts. It was all very good.
In the afternoon we went to Toyota. Mr. G.'s car is now 10 years old and starts to get ouchies. We thought before it is getting worse and also to get more money when they take back the old car it was better to sell it now and buy a new one . I had seen a little Kia which belonged to a friend, but then we decided to buy the little Toyota Aigo.
It's just perfect for Mr. G. who only drives very short distances and mostly only in Waterloo. We made an excellent deal, and were both happy about our purchase. Now he has to wait until end March before he gets the new car.
After a few warm days it suddenly became quite cold, too cold for me to go out ! But in the evening Nicole and I went to a theatre play, which was really excellent.
It was performed by hobby actors in a huge room belonging to the city. We got sandwiches, cakes and drinks before it started. The title was : The Trial of Marie Dugan. What I didn't know was that the whole play was as if we would attend a real trial, the actors who were witnesses were sitting amongst us, but we didn't know ! When the judge entered the stage the clerk asked the audience to stand up what we did of course all a little surprised and with laughter. The whole play was made just like a real trial ! I had never attended a trial, so this was my first one and very special !
