When I looked at the calender this morning and saw that today it is June 16, I thought today it is exactly one year we left our house where we had lived for 45 years and moved into this apartment. Who would have thought that I had to celebrate this date alone because Mr. G. has gotten Parkinson and is still in hospital and I still don't know if he will ever be able to come back home. To forget and not to be too sad I invited my new neighbor who just moved in and we celebrated together her arrival and my first anniversary with an alcohol free bottle of Champagne !
It's getting warm and warmer and I decided to fake that I am on holidays. I put my beachbed on the balcony and two parasols, sun cream and my travel computer, some sparkling water and then fell down on the bed ! I found out that it is not so terrible not to travel, as I have this wonderful view and can hear the kids laughing and screaming in the swimming pools around. I tried to leave my worries behind,
I got my second Pfizer shot, was a bit early but there were not many people so I could go in, they took my paper and identitiy card and then sent me in a cabine where a little man with a syringe in his hand waited for me ! I don't know where he had learned to give a shot but it hurt ! He obviously wasn't used to this job, maybe a doctor. I said nothing, smiled and left and thought afterwards why did I smile ? I wore a mask !
On my way back I said hello to Nicole who wasn't feeling too well because she had another week of chimeo behind her.
To end the day I wanted to take out a fresh nightgown when, I suddenly fell but had the reflex to hold onto the floor lamp and then we both fell on the floor. I felt a little groggy and my hip hurt, my leg too, and my right arm. I slowly crawled to my bed and lay down. I'm pretty flexible like a rubber doll thanks to my yoga so that I had nothing but huge bruises on which I immediately put on a special cream. The next day when I moved it hurt terribly, so I stayed on my sofa which I would have done anyway because we had 30° !! Strangely despite the sun was shining very hard, my two parasols helped and as there is always a little wind the heat was bearable.
The weatherman had announced heavy thunderstorms and as usual there were dark clouds but not one drop fell on my head !
We ended the week by going into "our" beloved Chinese Restaurant "all you can eat" ! It was almost one year we hadn't eaten Chinese anymore. It was cool inside and the plates were delicious. It was as if the normal life starts slowly. We still had to wear the mask, but sitting at the table you were allowed to take it of, would have been difficult to eat with a mask. We all ate like horses, it was nearly a shame !
It was 3 pm and nobody wanted to go shopping after this meal ! We all returned home and lay down ! It also was very hot outside but inside it was OK.
Before I went out I had taken off my glasses and couldn't find them anymore ! Five years without looking for glasses only my keys and now it starts again !
I still haven't found them, I even looked in the bins, in the fridge but without any success !
Tomorrow is another day !
