On Saturday I wanted to make our balcony ready for summertime ! In the morning my good Maria cleaned the floor and the furniture ! When it was done it started to rain which was very good, because we are only allowed to clean the floor when it rains, so that the neighbors on the first floor don't get a shower !

We had a quite a strong wind and the cherry trees lost their petals and it looked like pink snow from far !

In the evening we had a beautiful sunset.

In the afternoon Myriam came, the floor had dried and looked clean. We carried the grass carpet rolls on the balcony and unfolded and cut it. We both were very satisfied with the result. 

Then when it was all done we put the table and two chairs, so it's at least ready for two people. The other chairs I'll clean and take out later.

On Sunday my son should come in the morning to visit his father in the afternoon. But late afternoon I got a message that he won't come because he is sick ! I don't know what he has and as I didn't hear anything from him although it was Motherday, I thought I leave him in peace and wait until he explains what he has.


I think it's all a bit much for us, the lockdown, Mr.. G's Parkinson and the worries we have. I feel so tired as if I hadn't slept for a year ! So I went alone to visit Mr. G but I didn't stay long because he is very quickly tired and on top there was the Formular  1 ! It made me happy that at least he is still interested in the Formular 1 ! 



On my return I stopped at the Waterloo Lion, usually packed with tourists from the whole world.  The terraces of restaurants and cafes were open and to my surprise there were quite some people but I didn't see any car from another country and people didn't speak Chinese or Greek, but only French and Flemish. The borders are closed so everybody stays and discover his own country !

I was shocked when I saw that they had cut the beautiful huge trees and now they look creepy ! made for a battle field !
