WEEKEND MAY 12

Photo memes are here


Each week the people of Waterloo are invited for the Waterloo Apero, in the park of Waterloo. There are deckchairs little tables and you can eat and drink while meeting people from Waterloo and from our Facebook group "Vivre à Waterloo"



I went there with Nicole, the sun was shining and we all had a lot of fun. It felt like a little village gathering. The weather was also perfect. Next week we certainly will return !





For Mother Day I got this beautiful bouquet from my son who lives in Amsterdam. He also called me and wish me all the best and grandson Toby showed me what he had done for his mummy !





I thought how over the years Motherday has changed. When I was that age, we made things for motherday at school which mostly were horrible. I remember that we all got a new grey cleaning rag and cross stiched a text with read thread ! There was not much to offer so shortly after the war in 1950. My mother put it in the bathroom until it disappeared. When my son had this age it was the same, they crafted something at school for the mothers, which mostly was completely useless but far more sophisticated then my rag, I also kept it for a while and then it also disappeared !

Today it's different ! Toby had made composition on the computer with photoshop and his father had framed the artwork. He had sent me a photo and I really was amazed he surely had an artistic vein !

Mothers'Day here too and I had a great day with family. I still have some of the strange and useless gifts made at school for mothers. You are right the day has changed so much, families have scattered and gifts are much more sophisticated.

Mother's Day was here yesterday as well.

I'm sure the flowers were greatly appreciated. I love fresh flowers. I like your new weekend hang out.

Lovely flowers and that was a great present Toby made for his Mum. We had Mother's day back in March. Your gathering in Waterloo looks a lot of fun.

Yes, Toby is definitely very artistic.

I like the Village Fete idea -- your town seems to do a lot of great things to bring people together. The flowers are lovely -- and I certainly enjoyed your reminiscences about school craft projects for Mother's Day (and remember the same kind of thing also for Christmas.) And agree -- better now! (Although I'm sure that Toby does better than most of his classmates! He really is talented.)
