Since the birth of my grandson almost 6 years ago, I subscribed to Facebook. But I never used it, I just had an account to be able to see the pictures of my grandson my son posted on Facebook. So for 6 years I wrote on the "wall" mostly a link to my blog. I didn't know anything about Facebook. Then last Thursday, I was asked to create a Facebook page for our painting group ! Apparently I am the only one who is creative enough on a computer ! I started.
2. When you don't know how something works and have nobody to help you but Google and YouTube, it takes time to create a page and I was busy almost the whole day. At the end I came out with this :
and was quite satisfied with it. The only thing is now how to manage that thing as I am an administrator together with two others. That too was a brain storm how to add administrators !!
3. The sun came out again, at least it was brighter, but sun and warm jackets don't work for me I first have to get used to ! I don't like to sit in the middle of summer and winter !
My cat Kim was full of knots from the summer and I had to take her to the groomer ! She doesn't allow us to brush her and always runs away.
A lot of fur came out ! Enough for knitting pullovers !
4. Nicole had a lot to do to empty her kitchen, fortunately her daughter helped her. She has ordered a new kitchen. I dropped by to see the "mess", there is only the fridge still standing and she is now without kitchen for 2 weeks ! The micro wave stands in the living room !
We went together to the charity shop for battered women, I had quite a lot of toys from my grandson to give and Nicole cooking pots and books.
5. In our painting class we didn't paint very much, nobody was very inspired to paint but everybody was more then ready to chat. So we were like a chicken coop and cackled the whole morning only interrupted by a coffee break where we chatted ! There were so many things to talk about, from weather over politics to men and suddenly the light went off and we were all sitting in the dark. The electricity had gone. We heard people screaming in the lifts and nobody could go outside because of the electric doors. Fortunately it didn't last very long and we could go home. But instead of going home 5 of us went to the Chinese restaurant where we had an excellent meal. We arrived at 12.30 and left at 3 pm ! The owner probably thought we would spent the night there. But we had such a lot of fun and two spoke about their lives in African countries, with anecdotes causing a lot of laughter. A couple sitting at the table next to us, asked if they could join in and laugh too.
When I finally got home I thought it is really true, laughter is the best medicine ! For a while everybody had forgotten all worries and we all were in an excellent mood.
