I strolled through the Waterloo Gallery (because it was raining as usual) I needed to buy a new Swatch. I was surprised that the Gallery which usually is full of posh people because there are a lot of very expensive boutiques in there, was nearly empty. Even in the Swatch shop I was the only customer !
and that's the one I choose it looks a bit like a bracelet.
The usually so crowded Gallery was nearly empty at 2.30 pm. I have never seen that !
There was nothing to buy for me, even with sales prices the boutiques are very expensive.
New Year's Eve we spent at Monique's. That's the "girl" with whom Mr. G. plays card in his group and is my friend too.
She had prepared the table for a meat fondue. Everybody had to bring little gifts, like a bottle opener or a book sign, nothing expensive. These were all wrapped and we had to find out what was inside. The one who found what was inside got it.
We started while we had our apperitif with little appetizers and Champagne. We all had brought our drinks and a plate. One brought the appetizers, one the cheese, one the desert a delicious Tiramisu and I had brought a fruit salad. So the meal was complete.
We had a lot of fun in finding out what was inside the parcels ! Mr. G. won these "shoes" to keep his feet warm. Unfortunately they were just a little too small. I guessed, and got candles, and a bowl. Sometimes it was real difficult to find out !
It was already rather late, so we decided to eat. There was a lot of meat, I would say half a cow (not really) the meat was so tender and everybody could cook it the way she wanted. With that we had salad and chips. The vintage girl besides Mr. G. is my oldest friend we know each other since 1962 and used to go out a lot, when we were young. She had moved recently near Waterloo, so now we can see each other more often.
We had to interrupt our dinner because it was midnight ! we almost missed it.
And then we continued with our gifts, and at 3 am we all left. I wasn't tired a bit. We had a very very nice New Year celebration.
