We started the week with our Scrabble group, this time we went to Ilona. The weather cleared up and it became warm so we could sit outside and enjoyed her garden.
2. I helped Ilona to bring cartons and clothes to the charity shop in favour of battered women. Slowly her mother's apartment is nearly cleared out, she had so many clothes ! Like a film star, being so coquet at 93 is wonderful ! For the furniture somebody will come and take everything, the children and grandchildren didn't want any, antiques are not in fashion at all in the younger generation.
3. I did my last shopping for things I need for my trip to Ireland. It rained and the nature was happy, all flowers, plants and grass needed water badly.
4. We also had our last painting class with coffee and a cake and decided that we will continue to continue to paint without teacher during the holidays if the room is free. Otherwise 2 months is a long time. And then we love to be together. After the painting course 4 of us went to a restaurant, where the first mussels had arrived. We all had our mussels with chips the traditional Belgian plate. It was really delicious. The mussels were quite small this year but very tasteful.
5. When you are reading this I am on my way to Ireland. I have never been there so it will be quite an experience. The worst is the luggage as with Ryan air I am limited to 15 kgs in total, and I have to take warm and cool things with me as the weather is not stable at all ! I always hope that the weatherman is wrong. Here is a picture of the tour I will do.
I will post whenever I can, I take my little travel computer with me as always and will do a diary !
