Super-sized salads and cartoon dogs

There’s nothing like the jolt of realising it’s almost weekend again to remind you that you’ve still not blogged about LAST weekend. And so, while this has been one heck of a week (there’s no such a thing as a public holiday for those who work online, I’m afraid), and I’m as tired as a tortoise, worn-out as a wombat and achy as an anaconda (I know, I know – awful descriptions. It’s what I do)… there’s also something reinvigorating about reliving the past few days in photos. Plus, seeing as I take all these photos on Husband’s phone and he’d like to delete them so he has space for more important things, it really was time to get cracking.

And so, here we go – first I have some photos from the Worker’s Day public holiday last Thursday – we had a lovely lazy day, and went to the Poole pool hall for an afternoon drink…

Some of my Saturday highlights – replenishing my stack of ‘books to read’ from the sale table outside the Table View library, taking photos of the doggies in Husband’s phone’s ‘cartoon’ mode, replenishing the wood pile as it’s definitely turning chilly and watching the sunset from a table with a view at Spur (yes, we’re Spur people. People with a taste for life. Husband especially likes to order the ridiculously large salad there and drench it in pink sauce. That’s why we celebrated my half-birthday there a few years ago. Though I was very cross when I realised on the way home on Saturday that we didn’t using our Spur Family Card for points or vouchers or however it works.)

Then, on Sunday I forgot to take photos. Sob! So you’ll have to believe me that it was the first of the Cape Town rainy days for this winter. But fret not. We were not all doom and gloom. Oh no. It was still an excellent day as we decided to go to the movie theatres to watch an actual film! Still on circuit! With the gigantic-est tub of popcorn drenched in choking amounts of ALL the flavoured salt and secretly snuck in sodas! (Sssh, don’t tell). And with the weather as it was, we opted to watch Noah – yes, the stormy Bible one with the Harry Potter girl and the boy she was in Burberry ads with, which Husband scored with a surprising 6/10 (most movies don’t see more than 2 or 3 out of 10 from him. So that’s really good, trust me)… Plus we saw it at GrandWest Casino, which is always fun. Mainly because of the photo booths where we take fantastic shots like this.

My best part of the day? Running through the pelting rain together, across various open-air car parks.

That’s all, folks!
