On Sunday evening I was so euphoric about my new computer and how quick it was, but when Monday morning I opened it I saw that a lot of things had to be changed ! First everything was in French, and I am used to English with all these special words like "download", post settings, labels" etc. I had learned all these words when I started blogging in 2006 and at that time everything was in English it hadn't been translated into French yet! When I suddenly got a "courriel" in my mail box I concluded that it must be an email in French. All other countries kept the word email. As the girls were working and one was abroad, I tried to change everything which wasn't like I was used to ! In short it took me the whole day and then I had done it all now my computer was English again, but kept the French keyboard which is AZERTY and not QUERTY like in all other countries. I was very proud of myself but also had the impression that I had square eyes.
The weather was perfect to spend a whole day inside, it rained ! I managed to prepare and post and Blogger moved without problems into the new computer !
The next day my photos had disappeared in a Microsoft cloud which I had never asked for. The Google cloud is enough. I tried and tried to get rid of that thing, but got fed up, watched a movie and then Adeline came to say hello to Rosie and have a chat !
When I visited Rick, he looked quite good and was sitting at his table eating a waffle ! I tried to start a conversation, but he changed subject all the time and said that he had been in prison. I asked him if the bed was good and he said yes. I have learned to follow what he was telling me and not to disagree. Then we went downstairs sitting with the others. They played a game I didn't know. Then he wanted to return into his room he was tired and I left.
During the night a storm started and this morning it whistled around the building and the trees bent ! I thought my terrace furniture would fly away !
Rosie didn't care, she had started her daily nap, to be in shape this night, as she had been this night ! She turns the rags around and runs through the apartment. Impossible to change her rythme, running around during the day and sleeping during the nights !
My son and grandson will come this weekend and stay with me for the first time. Toby had been allergic to cats when he was little, but apparently there is no problem with Rosie. On Saturday we will visit Rick and probably have lunch with him, if it's possible. We can't take him out to a restaurant, he is too weak for that and would panic when he gets out of his usual environment.
As my fridge was empty as the States budget, I went shopping together with Adeline. Expecting two geants with a big appetite I filled in the fridge so that you can't put a needle inside ! I had to buy things for breakfast and lunch, because I never have breakfast I have a brunch. Anyway I have enough I hope !
I also got a very good message from my son, telling me that Toby had been accepted in a very good secondary school as he has finished primary school. What I like the most is that the school is bilingual and teaches in Dutch and English. The Dutchs are more clever then the Belgians they have realized long time ago that without English you just can stay in your village and not work abroad. Also for travelling it's useful, in fact English has become the Esperanto an artificial language which some people wanted to create fortunately without success. I am sure that if I would have had a school like Toby's I would have been a much better pupil, but on the other hand I can't complain, I learned the languages by myself almost without school.
Now the wind became more and more strong and I am sure this evening in the News we will see some damaged houses and fallen trees.
