As I have no children anymore and no grandchild yet, there are no toys in our house, not even for the cats because they prefer to play with foil balls, moths, spiders, flies, shoelaces, strings and each and every thing that moves. And I don't think that spiders etc. would count as toy.
So I went to our Shopping center and made some pictures of toys.




For girls




for everybody































and some toys for the boys

Result of this : it seems as at least the toys are international !

“Show us what you are thankful for.
Show us what made this year special. Family, an inspirational person, a place you got to visit, a new family addition. Show us what made you thankful this year.”

Is the theme of this week. As I only can be thankful to somebody who rendered me a service or helped in some way I would rather show some things I am happy and content about.

Holydays in England at the South-East cost where I were invited by friends.

and again in Mai in Egypt at the red sea. This little girl doesn't belong to me, she is a little russian tourist.

Unfortunately I cant't put a picutre of my last holidays in Turkey, but if you like to read about Turkey and look at beautiful pictures it is in my blog

  • COUNTRIES & CITIES
  • Note : I have to use Mr. Gattono's computer as mine is "kaputt" and completely. And for this I can be "thankful" to my dear cat Lisa. (will write about it in my cat blog). I couldn't upload pictures either and had to use the once I had in Photobucket.

    There were no many tackles to do this week, in fact there are not many every week. So here is what I tackled :


    I finished this painting in my painting group


    I helped my neighbour with painting class on saturday mornings. There are 6 little girls coming but two were sick. This is always very nice.
    We went a few times in our favourite café to have a sandwich at lunch

    Mr. Gattino is sitting at the table in the back.


    I had some laundry to do of course not from this date on ...





    I had to call the plumber because our bathtube tap leaked.

    and that was it. Besides of course I spent a lot of time at my computer, still learning.

    Frank Borman was the first man walking a few steps on the moon on 20 July 1969, with Apollo 11. He visited Brussels in 1970 and stayed at the Hilton where my husband worked, and he gave him an autograph, on a menu card which of course has paled with the time.

    An old family bible from my father's side dated from 1830, which shows that time has left traces.

    The first leather shoe of our son, size 21 which I had casted in bronze as it was (and maybe still is) the use here in Belgium. Now by the time his feet grew and reached size 48 !

    This lemmon is exactly 37 years old and was one of the table decorations at our wedding. With the time of course it has shrinked and dried out.
