On Monday I was talking with Rick's friend to organize a visit schedule, so that he has always one visitor and not two, as long as he has to stay in bed because of his bad state due to the Corona infection he had despite the three vaccines. Suddenly the telephone was dead. I called her on the mobile just to say good bye. When I wanted to switch on the TV it didn't work either, Internet was gone. I tried to get internet back but nothing worked. Our internet provider didn't even answer the phone anymore and a female voice told me that works are going on in our part of the city and it would end at 9 pm !! The whole day without internet what should I do ? My heart sank. And then suddenly I had an idea, I went to the Carrefour Supermarkt, to the hairdresser ! The hairdresser was busy, so I did some shopping and returned home. Of course still no Internet.
So I took the opportunity to start looking into Rick's computer. First all the USB sticks, there was a lot he had saved from me so I could free 2 sticks. On one I found a cute photo of little Rick on the canon which is standing in his home town, a left over from the 1st WW, but now a welcome thing to play with
Suddenly the TV went on and I looked on my watch it was 6.30 pm and internet was back ! I hadn't realized that it was so late already. But better for me because I had "Our World" to do. At 9 pm I am tired.
Before I went visiting Rick, I had to buy some cleaning products and his home is close to the shop where I had to go. They had had a lot of Christmas decoration but that day very little was left. So I bought a big Father Christmas for Rick's room which sits now in the armchair and keeps him company. Of course I forgot to take a picture ! But he seemed happy with his Father Christmas.
Inside the retirement home was this beautiful Christmas tree and the whole first floor was decorated
Rosie's claws were long and as I don't dare to cut them, I went with her to my trimmer friend, who is the hairdresser for cats and dogs. Rosie sang I don't know what, maybe Christmas songs the whole way long, but then stopped when she was out of the car in her carrier and in 5 minutes her pedicure was done ! We both women chatted a bit and then I drove a less singing Rosie home.
Last year I found a masked Father Christmas and bought it immediately ! I thought this will be a special one from the first worldwide pandemia where we all lived in complete lockdown. Never ever I had imagined that one year later we are still with our Virus, and the masks ! And now I should buy one for 2021 !
