The Alien Invasion

I could not resist taking these pictures the other day, coming from a shopping trip: The Alien Invasion has arrived.....


Blessings II

So, I have had holiday and did a whole lot of nothing. It was fantastic. I did however, help a friend with some of her mending (no, she did not ask, I offered) and it was such a fantastic day - I got fed (yummy pasta and brownies), did what I love and had company doing it.

In return, I received......
Home-made Biscotti!!! YUMMY, thank you Se7en.

Also, I ordered and received a brand-spanking-new couch. What a pleasure to not sink almost to the floor when relaxing (I used a low bed as couch before).

The Ottoman came as a freebie - don't you just love those?

Fans, fans and more fans

Let me just say that I'm really NOT a soccer fan, nor any sport for that matter. But am I glad that my friend Pat convinced me to do the fan walk with her. There is nothing like hearing the crowds go wild when a goal is scored. I'm talking about the first goal of the match between Germany and Argentina (from the 3rd minute). I then watched the rest of the game on the telly, and I must honestly say it was a fantastic game.
So, here are pictures of some of the 300 000 fans on that day (yes, the number is correct).
