The game which looked so easy and full of possibilities turned out to be very difficult and took a long time ! We had to wait for our coffee and cake !
And while it was cold and rainy outside, it was very cosy and warm inside thanks to the fire in the stove.
I had got an email from the German embassy that my identity card and passport were ready and I went there 15 km to hear that I am too late it was 11 am. I had called before and they had told me that the office was open until 12, but not for picking up documents. I made a little show and insisted and finally I got both things and waved them good bye ! Now I am in peace for 10 years and finally I can travel again with a plane and a train !
While I was shopping for painting material I saw an advent calendar, very special, all little boxes glued together and you have to fill in yourself. As my grandson is very allergic to nuts I can't buy one with sweets because a little piece of a nut is enough for him to swell up and suffocate. I found some cute smilies to put them in the boxes with the date on, and also a few sweets I am 100 % sure that they don't contain any nuts !
Since Myriam and I are the "Presidents, Administrators "or whatever we have got 4 more members and now we have to pay attention that we are not too many in our group. Last year we had lost quite a lot of members. Now we have enough money to pay our teacher, the insurance and we even could buy a coffee machine, for our coffee breaks !
In the evenings now, I have each day the same view, Rosie on the second floor and Arthur on the first on and close to the radiator !
Above you see Joëlle teaching backgrounds in watercolors, besides those who paint what they want and with the material they want and then the "piggies" with their pouring. Mine from last week is to the left and I "poured" another one which has to dry and it is again the suspense how it looks when it is dry !
