But in the morning Nicole had been with Charlie to the vet because of his infected eye and unfortunately he was diagnosed with a tumour behind his right eye. There is nothing to do than to make him his life as happy as possible until he starts to suffer. For the moment he is a little slow, probably due to the pills he has to take but he has a very good appetite and that's important.
2. These bad news influenced our scrabble game, we tried to play as usual and that worked, but we were a bit less cheerful.
This time Mireille won, and Ilona lost, I was the third one, not too bad. We were at Ilona's and just had our coffee break. Main discussion subject, Charlie's tumor.
2. The world is small ! I had got a phone call from a lady who asked me if I was Mrs. G. I said yes, and she told me that she is also living in Waterloo and had stumbled over this blog and had tried to find out who I was ! Through Facebook she found me and the telephone n° was in the telephone book ! So we decided to meet in a café in the center of Waterloo. She also lives here and not that far from me ! We had a very nice talk and a coffee together. We were about the same age and after 2 hours she and I had to go, but we will see each other again.
3. I had some shopping to do and met with Nicole afterwards to have a drink together. Charlie had changed a bit he seemed older to me and quickly breathless. But he greeted me cheerfully and looked at me with his one eye, the other is now completely white. He lay besides our table and I ordered some water for him, and apparently he was happy because he likes to go into a "bar" !
4. Exactly one year ago on the 22nd of March the terrorist attacks had happened where 32 people died and hundreds were injured.
A ceremony was held in presence of the King and the Queen, at the Airport and then at the tube station. I watched a bit on TV but it was so sad that I didn't watch the whole ceremony.
Instead I noticed that nature starts to bloom !
There were quite a lot of us who were missing, doctor's appointments and colds. So we finished or started new paintings and had a lot of fun !
