On Monday we had our Scrabble game inside, as the temperature had dropped quite a lot, almost to the half we had the week before. I think autumn is in the air !
Nicole has left the hospital after 3 weeks of radio and chimiotherapy and is at home now. Her daughter takes care of her until they find another solution, after one month. She looks good and is not so tired anymore and is very happy to be with us. So we visit her or we invite her and that way her daughter has a bit of free time too.
The store who had made my curtains finally called me to tell me that I can pick up the two curtains which were wrong, they had mixed up the length with the width !! All in all it took a long time with these curtains, I had ordered them in May and got the first part beginning August and the second part beginning of September ! And all that is the fault of the Coronavirus where we were all locked into our homes and companies and shops closed !!
I also picked up a few of my paintings which I had left with my ancient neighbor and Myriam and Nicole helped me to hang them on the walls ! One wall we couldn't use at all it was in concrete and when Myriam tried to hammer a nail in the wall it became crooked ! No wonder that we never hear any noise from our neighbors.
Now the paintings are on the wall
We are all feeling tired and also bored ! The shops remain empty even during the "Sales" period, nobody buys clothes, there is nowhere to go, except in a restaurant. Which we did this week again.
For the economy it is a disaster many little boutiques had to close, the artists have no work because there is no theatres, all festivities have been cancelled ! We all had hoped that by September it would get better but no, it is even sometimes worse especially when you want to go on holidays in another country and it becomes a red zone during your stay. Then officially you have to leave, get a test and stay home for 2 weeks. But I know people who just slipped through, nobody checked.
Still it is not a normal life and the only thing which cheers me up is the decoration of my new home.
Only Rosie is happy, she doesn't care about social life as long as she has a filled food bowl, water and the best napping places !
