The afternoon I spent with blogging and tried to make a selfie of my cat Pookie, but she wasn't very cooperative.
2. I had gotten a letter from the city that my new identity card was ready to be picked up.
Fortunately there was nobody and I got it right away ! Our city hall is a very pleasant modern building, as you can see on these pictures.
Just besides is the Police station, which looks very welcoming, the few criminals we have here have a pleasant welcome. The police cars were nearly all there, probably because the Belgian police is on strike, they protest that they have to work until 62 years now instead of 57. Apparently only politicians want to work until their 80, if you look around in all countries of the world they are really not the youngest once.
3. Mr. G. when we bought his new office chair didn't want to have arm rests, but now he does, but didn't want to return to Ikea, he hates this kind of stores. As it was raining anyway and I like to walk through Ikea, I went there and bought the arm rests.
and now the chair looks better and is more comfy. I noticed that the new fashion color for all furnitures is grey, black and white. I walked through kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms and saw only grey and black. Not very cheerful !
I got bored and thought I will go to the Garden center which also has decorative items, to cheer me up looking at colorful flowers.
and what did I see .... grey black and white ! When I saw a black rose in a grey vase, I had enough and returned to my car, and the sky was grey ! Apparently it was my grey day !
On my way back I stopped at Ilona's at least her home has a warm and cosy feeling and there is NO grey, white and black ! We discussed this fact and came to the conclusion that the younger generation must be rather depressed, living in grey houses with grey and black furniture. Sometimes you also find a poop brown. This and what you hear in the News looks like a not very cheerful future. I wonder who invented this fashion, it must have been a very pessimist person.
My grandson Toby's creche has a Blog where parents and grandparents can have a look what their kids or grandchildren are doing during the day. At least he wasn't wearing grey and I found this picture so cute. I thought he has already a good taste to choose a girl !
5. I went to visit Ilona's mother who with her 90 years had a hip surgery and is again home and fit like a fish in the water ! This woman is a miracle, she is straight like an "I" and I can tell you she walks quicker than me, does her shopping and looks like 70 ! She is one of the persons who have NOTHING which is rather rare at that age ! She was happy to see me and we had a coffee together. After that I went to Nicole, she had a few questions about her new tablet and I took the opportunity and installed Skype for her. Now she can speak with her granddaughter who is in Peru with the Erasmus student program !
