FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE - FIVE ON FRIDAY - SKYWATCH FRIDAY





A blue sky !! A miracle ....



More participants here at



1. After the exciting troubles with the repair of our internet connection (you can read it here I was a bit exhausted from all that stress.



You can imagine the dirt I had in our garage ! It was raining the whole day and the street muddy poor workers.

2. First thing in the tne next morning came somebody from our internet provider called "Voo" and took pictures of the street now without the cable. I took a picture of him too. It even had started to "snow" ! but not for long.



Fortunately we had our scrabble Monday and I could relax.

The Belgian TV team came back and checked our street, everything was done.

4. and to conclude the whole story a responsible of VOO came together with the TV team and they made again a movie of the now repaired street and the connection.

We spoke with the internet VOO man too and I told him that our garden looked now as if an elephant had danced the moonwalk in there, barks damaged, it has  to be redone completely.  Of course everybody was very kind we included and then they went away. The next day we got an email that as a commercial gesture we will get 2 month free of charge. OK that's better than nothing and covers at least the costs for the garden.

Next week then I will appear in the TV !  I don't know the date yet.

5. I had a call from Toyota that they had to replace and airbag, apparently they had forgotten when I had the car checked last time. I could wait it was very quick and as Nicole lives nearby I took the opportunity to have a coffee with her and pick up the travel documents for Egypt which had been send to her. Now I have to check my summer clothes ! That's at least a nice work !!

Sounds like a satisfying week. I can't wait to see Grumbling Gattina from Waterloo on Youtube.

Thinking about and packing clothes for a vacation in a warm climate is a fun thing to do on a cold winter day!
Glad the internet service is finally fixed

Wendy said...

I hope you get the garden cleared up quickly so you can put this whole saga behind you. But at least you have your holiday to look forward to now.

So glad the cable finally got taken care of! And it's nice they gave you 2 months free. Fun to have a trip to look forward to!

So they have finally sorted out the ridiculous internet wiring in your street. Hope you managed to record your TV interview for us to watch.

There's always a mess when men get done working! But, at least, you know you won't have to do that again any time soon :)

Mara said...

I could do with some sunshine and warmth. Mind you, woolly underwear will help you keep warm as well (*sigh*).

Loree said...

So you finally had blue skies and we finally had rain. On Friday it rained as much during one day as it usually does in a whole month. Some places got flooded but we live on a hill so no problems here.

Willow said...

Another holiday in Egypt? Sunshine and warmth!
I'm glad the VOO people have been helpful now although it took a tv interview to get them to fix things!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

So they are going to fix your internet? Because of your appearance on TV? Wow. Hooray for getting to go to Egypt!!!

Susanne said...

Well so glad the work was all done and you got a few months free to offset the cost of fixing the garden.
