WEEKEND MAY 18 - AWWWW MONDAY





Accidents



Linking to AWWW MONDAYS

*******

Once again the weather changed and I woke up hearing drops falling ! Not cats and dogs, but still a lousy weather. So we had to change our plans and went to a "junk sale" and village fest in one area of Waterloo, which once had been the part where posh people lived.

Now they are still the oldest generation of  people from Waterloo, born here since generations. It was a lot of fun because people are very open and cheerful.

We didn't find anything in all that junk, it's still unbelievable what stuff people try to sell, more for fun I guess, because you got things nearly for nothing.

I admired the architecture of the old houses and then we went to "La Pomme" (the apple) a pub like café and had a drink there.




On Sunday it was even worse, it was warm but very humid and an unhealthy weather.  Myriam, Nicole and I drove to Genappe, which once also belonged to the various villages which were on the Waterloo battle field.




A "200" year old soldier pointed his rifle on us.



The village had organized a "Vide Dressing" which means like "empty your wardrobe" ! There were very expensive brand name clothes for very cheap prices for sale. Unfortunately the sizes were far too small for the three of us. I didn't find anything, but Nicole and Myriam found handbags from Gucci and another one, I don't remember for 3 € a real bargain !



The cat of the house watched us leaving



We were thirsty and sat outside on the terrace of a café on the town square, and had a nice time.

Tomorrow I will have to do a big shopping and prepare everything for Mr. G's homecoming on Tuesday !

It is good you had alternative plans for poor weather. Hopefully you won't have too much extra work to do when Mr G comes home.
