The contortionist



My cleaning lady is still in Ireland so the other one came on Saturday morning. I am very happy with her, she is real good and a very friendly woman. Unfortunately leaving our house and driving a few km an 18 year old girl who had mixed up the pedals bumped in her car and damaged it severely. And as it is usually, you are innocent but you have the most paperwork and worries !

In the afternoon I visited a friend who had a head surgery, she had a ulcer in the brain, fortunately not a bad one. Finally it was not so severe, after 3 h she was in intensive care and a week later at home. They had made the operation through the nose, so she looked completely normal with nicely combed hair. She felt a bit dizzy and weak but could walk around in her apartment. I found her real nice and also relieved because you never know how you will get out of a brain operation ! That's like the spine !

We are "blessed" with another storm called Helen it is just arriving and I see the trees shaking in the strong wind.

So what to do on a Sunday when you risk to be blown away ? Go to the movies ! And that's what we did.

Little Women, the French title was  "Les quatre filles du Dr. March "The four daughters of Dr. March"


  1. Oh, was it called Helen? In the Netherlands the storm didn't have a name and I thought we were only up to F! It was bad enough though and took a lot out of me: I was quite tired after a day of driving in it.

  2. That last kitty photo gave us a good laugh! Love those eyes!

  3. Cats are so agile. I used to be. Sigh. Love the kitties and the pup.

    Going to the movies when there's a storm outside is a great way to spend the afternoon/evening.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week, Gattina. ♥

  4. No storms here - with or without a name. But it's cloudy today, for the first time in weeks. Cats and their contortions! They're so funny.

  5. I'm sorry for your current cleaning lady about the accident. But I'm happy about your friend who had s surgery. Glad she is recovering well.
    Love those cute photos! Rosie is a master contortionist :-)

  6. These pets certainly look well cared for and completely stress-free and relaxed. About the car accident … all the paperwork when things go wrong adds to the headache that is for sure. On the other hand, the woman with the ulcer removed from her head had the good luck of smart doctors.

  7. Beatiful photos, I love the bird on Arthur's head - MOL! I'm glad you got to do something fun during the storm. Have a great week!

  8. What a delight to see the kitties they were definitely awww...
