The one I had before was red, but this one would do it too. It just makes two Espressi for us. I tried it out and it worked perfectly.
2. The pick up point for the coffee pot was just behind Nicole's apartment in a private house and I took the opportunity to visit her and tell her all about my holidays in Holland. The sun had come out and we could sit on her terrace and had a cup of coffee. (A normal one) Nicole pretends she would get a heart attack with my strong espresso !
3. My friend Bunny (that's her nickname) has moved near Waterloo, so now we can see each other more often she had lived for 40 years in Charleroi which is about 70 km from here. But as her whole family lives in Waterloo, she decided to also move to Waterloo.Besides she couldn't keep her house alone anymore with this big garden. We had decided to see the "Diana Fashion Show" in London and had to book our hotel and train tickets. After a nice meal with Mussels and Belgian fries we went to my house and ordered the tickets. There are so many people who want to see Diana's clothes that you have to order your tickets long before.
4. After 4 weeks of suffering because my cleaning lady had been on holidays for one month, she finally came back and freed me from this burden. As usual she had brought us nice gifts, a beautiful necklace for me and a box of chocolates for Mr. G. and this beautiful frame.
I think it is tinted sand in water and when you turn the frame around it gives you all kind of forms which you can interpret like you want. The colors and the different effects are beautiful. I have told her already so many times not to buy gifts for us, but there is nothing to do, she insists. So today I wore the new necklace.
I had an appointment with an eye surgeon because my eye doctor had detected cataract in both eyes. Last year I had nothing and it suddenly appeared in one year. I had noticed that I had difficulties to read the subtitles on TV. As half of my painting class had recommended me this Doctor, I thought he must be good otherwise half of the class would be blind by now.
This time it was me to receive my scrabble group and we had a very difficult game ! usually we play 3 times this time only 1 and that interrupted by coffee and cake because we needed a break. And oh miracle I was second ! Usually I am the second from the end ! We had a nice afternoon but not my neighbors because we were quite noisy !
