From "winter" we jumped into summer temperatures and I was glad that I hadn't changed anything in my "dressing", years ago in autumn I separated winter and summer clothes but since only the trees have the four seasons, it is not worthwhile anymore. From my autumn clothes I jumped in a T-shirt.
The umbrella I had ordered had arrived and Myriam helped me to assemble it, which means she did all and I watched ! She had the good idea to attach it with a cord in case the wind wanted to blow it away.
Despite the sunshine we had our scrabble inside and not as usual on her terrace, because she has a very naughty and uncooperative neighbor and she didn't want that saw that we were more than the lockdown rules allowed. He has a pump for heating his swimming pool which is so noisy since he changed its place that she can't stay on her terrace. She had tried the friendly way but he shut the door in front of her nose and then she had to call the police for an official statement and now it goes further !
I am happy that we have nice neighbors and we are only 3 on the same floor. Yesterday the fire alarm went on and made a hell of a noise. As it was early morning we all appeared in nightgowns or pajamas, the hairs standing up and wondering how we could stop it because there was no fire, the cleaning man had pushed too hard on the case when he dusted ! Fortunately the youngest neighbor who is the mother of little Michael Jackson (the boy looks like a twin when Michael was a kid) disappeared in the basement and then suddenly the awful noise stopped ! We all were happy to have somebody on our floor who knows what to do ! We were standing there looking all very chic and laughed and chatted a bit before everybody went back in his apartment !
After 5 years without glasses now I needed one again ! I picked them up and it was strange because they are bifocals, but it lasted only one day and now I feel "normal" again, if that is possible.
Two days later after having helped me with the parasol, Myriam came back and assembled the box to put cushions and all the stuff which lay around on the balcony. Now with the "green grass" and no junk anymore laying around it looks nearly like a living room !
To end the week the Doctors had kidnapped Mr. G. can't sayanother word ! They had brought him back to the Waterloo Hospital for a Scan, but hadn't told me anything. Fortunately a friend of ours was visiting Mr. G this day and the Doctor thought, instead of asking, that she was his wife and had told her about the transfer back to the Hospital. It's a too long story but I had to wait until 5 pm when I finally got an answer where he was ! I was was so angry and at that time of course you can't get hold of a doctor, but at least I got his telephone number. As he was tired and confused I couldn't find out what they had done with him so long and have to wait until tomorrow when I or my son will call the doctor and ask for some more details ! It's a shame they are all very friendly but nobody knows what the other is doing.
This ends my week and I am so tired because I was worried the whole day.
