Waterloo Lion as usual

1. When it is so grey and humid outside I need a GPS to find the way out of my bed. But unfortunately I can't do like my cats, laying around the whole day and being served meals at time !
As usual I lost again at our scrabble game, the strangest thing is, I am the only one who has learned French as an adult and my spelling is nearly perfect, while all my friends who went to school in Belgium, have all difficulties with the spelling ! So I became a sort of dictionary. That's probably why I always loose ?! No, I think it's why the others are better in calculation and I don't calculate points, I just look for nice words instead of 8 points I then have only 1 ! But as always it was fun. This time it was Nicole who received the scrabble group.
2. I decided to make a lazy day, I just filled in our freezer but didn't do any other shopping, I returned quickly home where it was nice and warm. As my Grandson will be 7 tomorrow I made a card for him, which took me nearly the whole afternoon. I sent it per email to my son and asked him to print it, put it in an envelope and then in his letter box, because our mail service is so lousy here that only offices (and still) use the mail. My son complained that I had forgotten to also send the envelope by mail !! Does anybody know how to do that ??
and while I did this I discovered a lot of other companies doing what everybody calls now "photoshop".
This is our internet connection since Monday. The company had promised to repair as soon as possible, but it seems to me that the responsible has once lived in Africa in the Congo which was a Belgian colony and hasn't forgotten how to repair in the bush. So we are still with our cable on the street. So far nobody has damaged it.
Today they called and said that the fault was in our garden !
The leader of the mole colony ?
I don't know how this can happen, maybe a mole colony liked cables and damaged them. Anyway Mr. G. was asked to dig a hole 1 m long and 1 m large and 80 cm deep. Now poor Mr. G. has arthritis 1and isn't 20 anymore and I am a weak woman, so we had the big problem who could dig the hole ! We couldn't ask cat Arthur his holes are too small. Finally Mr. G. had a great idea (when I am away he gets great ideas, when I am here, he waits until I have them) anyway he suddenly remembered that our new neighbor has a building contractors company and he asked him if he didn't have somebody who could dig the hole. And of course he had and Saturday hopefully (always depends on the weather) it will be done. And then we hope the internet company can fill the hole with cables or whatever the only thing which is important is that internet works !
As usual we had a lot of pleasure while painting, especially when a classmate put her things together and it looked as if she had cleaned up a hospital ! It looked as if the glass was full of blood and the cotton too ! I wanted to start to paint Arthur, but finally a part from the ears I didn't get any further.
