If you’re not even sure what a staycation is, you definitely need one. It’s a vacation where you don’t actually go anywhere. So you stay at home enjoying the simple things like getting up when your body clock tells you it’s the right time to, reading the pile of books you’ve been ignoring, singing along to songs on the radio, catching up on those TV shows you’ve been putting aside (ahem Glee season 5, I’m talking to you), and seeing people who happen to be available during the week (such as your lovely retired parents).
And so, that’s what I did during last week’s mid-week staycation – along with spending quality time napping with the doggies, I spent Tuesday to Thursday catching up on much needed admin and housework and even breaking my first ever window (accidentally, of course). Alas Husband was not on leave with me as he’d already had a staycation of his own a few weeks earlier – click here for a reminder. We’ll definitely plan our leave better next time around!
But I digress. It was rather chilly in Cape Town last week, as you can tell from these photos…
That’s all, folks. It was a much-needed mini-break but the relaxation’s not over yet as I’m in the middle of yet another mid-week staycation this week! So expect more photos soon, but first I have some of last weekend to share… Watch this space! 🙂
