At 11 am still sleeping, Mr. G. and the cats ! I answered a few emails and then fell on the sofa and watched TV. I was not tired just very lazy. I also made a few phone calls for the New Year and that was it. At 9 pm we both went to bed. A few years ago we recovered more quickly !
On top all shops were closed for the 1st January and it was grey and wet outside, so the best place was anyway to stay inside.
On Tuesday I had a bit more of energy and made two new headers for my blogs.
That's something I like to do and time went by very quickly ! I also changed my profile picture and changed the usual cats to the camel Oscar.
Sales should start on January 3 and not before (otherwise you get a fine) so the streets were empty and only a few window shoppers were looking for the prices, to compare them with the sales prices the next day.
As I badly needed little boots, my old once fell into pieces, I went to the shoe shop and was told that I could get the "Sales" price if I buy two articles. But I didn't want two pairs of shoes. I told the girl that I would come back the next day, but she said, you can buy them now and take a pair of stockings or something little then you have two articles !
Good idea, I choose a black beret got on the two the "sales" discount and returned home. That way I avoid the mostly women "rush" on bargains, the crowd and the traffic !
Now that finally the year end's festivities are over I had enough of looking at my Christmas tree, the angels, garlands, father Christmas etc etc. Together with my cleaning lady we put everything away !
Now the room looked normal again and ready for my Scrabble girls, as it was my turn to receive them.
For once I was second which was really surprising. Then we had coffee and cake and I showed my new beret and boots to my friends. They all liked the beret and wanted to buy one tomorrow. Myriam tried it on and it suited her very well. It was a very pleasant afternoon !
