Plus the rain and wind it's true ! Fortunately I had some nice activities over the weekend.
We had our very first Facebook meeting of our group "Living in Waterloo" (vivre à Waterloo) and even our mayor was present (on the first picture above left, the handsome blond girl in the middle). It was great fun to see each other life and we talked about everything going on in Waterloo.
During the day there was not much to do as the usual things in the household.
The next day the city had organized a "Gospel" concert. We were all very keen to go and finally we were 5.
The concert was a catastrophe we were expecting a group of black singers as it should be, but it was a white group who moved like brooms and had not the special voice of a real gospel singer.
The leader of the choir started with explaining the origin of Gospel and I don't know from where he got this story, but most of it was absolutely wrong.
Besides there were not all gospel songs or only one or two. Amongst Jazz songs, they even sang "Amazing Grace" in a "Gospel concert", which has nothing to do with Gospel. Most of the people didn't know what it was, as they hardly know their own country's anthem. Fortunately in a few songs was a black female singer, and she was absolutely great, she killed the whole choir with her powerful voice. Nicole fell asleep, didn't even wake up when I took the picture with a flash, only when the black singer started she woke up ! Of course we all laughed. We were happy when the concert was over !
To recover we went in our newly discovered Tea room (see post below) and I ordered cream tea. I was so curious how they would present it as you can't find clotted cream here. When my friends saw what I got, they wanted to try they had never eaten a scone so we all had cream tea.
Despite that the cream was not clotted the scone was freshly baked and still a bit warm, the blueberry jam was homemade and both delicious and to replace the clotted cream the cook had added a bit of lemon juice to the whipped cream and it really tasted very good. Now they all decided that we would always have our cream tea when we are going there.

My friend Monique had sent me these photos taken in the tea room and had added :
"I bet if we had been on stage " as the 5 Angels" There would have been more ambiance"
And she is absolutely right !
