I had to go to the city hall to get the codes for Mr. G's identity card, as he doesn't remember and I can't find them nowhere. I needed them for the tax declaration.
My neighbor came over at 4 for a cup of coffee and we sat on the balcony and chatted. This was the last time I used the balcony this week !
Scrabble day, first a little rain then sunshine and we could sit outside under the Pergola and eat our cake after having played. Chantal because of her two sons is a football (soccer) fan and had put two little Belgian flags on her car. At the end of the afternoon a thunderstorm arrived and we drove home. We were quicker home then the thunderstorm, but then it was in some parts of Belgium a real catastrophe with flooding, mud and destroyed houses.
Fortunately in our district there was nothing except a bit water in the garages.
The next day began real bad ! I was still in bed at 9 am which I think is a normal time for a vintage lady when it rains cats and dogs outside ! Of course the phone rang it was the social assistant who wanted me to look for a retirement home for Mr. G.
Without coffee I first didn't understand what she exactly wanted, she told me that now he is ready to go into a retirement home. I sent her to hell and said I first want to talk with the doctor before I do or say anything. She said she would send me a brochure with the names of all retirement homes here around.
When I was fully awoken, I got really angry ! After all, it's her job to organize a decent place for him and first also ask me in which price range. I was so furious that I didn't even know what to do ! Nursing homes were just as strange to me as as a new lighthouse. I decided not to do anything anymore and hid behind my short crime stories on TV. Of course the first one I found was called "Murder in a nursing home" ! Exactly the right thing for me !
The only "excursion" I made was going to the mailbox on the first floor and found a packet in the mail box with some new "feathers" (clothes) which raised my mood. I had ordered them such a long time ago that I had forgotten. I was very happy with what I had ordered and the most important thing was, they all fit !
Until Monday I have decided I forget the social workers and retirement homes otherwise I will get crazy and they can look for a place in a madhouse for me !
