We all survived :-)
We’re having a rather wonderful but perhaps slightly chilly morning here. No wind and sunshine but it will not last for long, clouds have already started to arrive and we’ll get rain later in the evening. I just hope the lawn dries up enough so I can mow it before the rain starts to fall. There were still some frost on the plants when we started walking this morning and I heard the Cuckoo for the first time too (I don’t count that time a few weeks ago when I thought I heard it, if it had been here I would have heard it many times since then but I haven’t).
The road association meeting was just as bad as I had feared but only in the beginning. The laws here are quite strict so I really can’t say who did what so they are recognisable. But the “wrong” person started like always and we all soon got tired of him but then our hero stopped it all 🙂 I must say I admire him because he has the ability to insult a person in a way that the person thinks it’s funny and finally actually give up and stay calm the entire time the meeting continues 🙂 To be honest, I don’t think the “wrong” person understood a thing but we got the result we wanted 🙂
This “wrong” person had a few days before the meeting called the chairman of the association screaming something about a musician we have in our village and complained about the sound from the instrument, that it was disturbing the entire village (no one understands what this has to do with the road since that part of the road doesn’t belong to the road association but is private and still it has nothing to do with the road at all!). Now I pass that home every day and the only time one actually can hear the instrument is if You actually stand close to the house walls 🙂 and it is a classical instrument so there is no amplifier connected to it. Talk about making oneself a fool 🙂 The “wrong” person must have been standing in the garden to be able to hear it especially well and therefore broken a law or two and is stupid enough to talk about it 🙂 🙂 🙂
So the meeting only took 1,5 hours 🙂 If we actually had just kept to what the meeting was about and also just accepted what the association had decided years back it would have taken 15 minutes. I did however get a good amount of gossip and actually some good totally true information as well 🙂 so the evening wasn’t a total waste of time after all and the coffee and pear juice was delicious as well as the coffee bread (as we call pastry here).
It is time to go outside, Nova is waiting by the kitchen stairs with her punctured foot ball (soccer ball for You Americans 🙂 ) and Sune with at least one stick 🙂 Nova gets it that she has to let go of the ball so I’ll be able to throw it away again, Sune however is still rather hesitant of leaving the stick to me 🙂 He just circles around me wanting me to throw it but as I say to him, I really need to get it unless he wants me to throw him too at the same time 🙂 He’s just too heavy to do that though 🙂 🙂
Have a great day!
