Last weekend was a bittersweet one as we took my parents to the airport for their much-anticipated, well-deserved Mediterranean cruise to celebrate Mom’s 60th birthday this coming week – shh! Don’t tell her I told you! 😉 So while we were super excited on their behalf (especially as Husband is quite the aviation fanatic, as I’m sure you know)… it was also sad for us – mainly that we couldn’t go with, but also because we’re so used to seeing them every few days and having them just a WhatsApp message away when advice is needed (and this week LOTS of advice has been needed… but that’s a topic for another post).
So Saturday was all about the airport – Husband even took a video of the parents’ plane taking off for Johannesburg, where they spent a night with mom’s sweet family before flying on to Paris and Italy – click here to see it!
But before that was a wonderful late-Friday farewell work lunch with my fantastic current colleagues before we went our separate ways – and as luck would have it, we ate at the Fireman’s Arms, which I already knew made a marvellous Dom Pedro, so Dom Pedro I did:
And to eat? An enormous bacon cheese burger with fries (I ate EVERY. SINGLE chip/speck of relish and polished off the burger… in fact, that’s all I ate that day!)
Sunset skies are the perfect start to a weekend. And then the weekend began! Here’s what we did, starting with the airport:
Sunday was a relaxing day filled with warm-feeling-flooding-your-body things like a wine farm breakfast at Poplars Restaurant in D’Aria Wine Estate (which is where we did our very first wine tasting when we first moved down, click here for a reminder), as well as afternoon cake and lolling about in front of the fire as it turned rainy, as you’ll see below…
That’s all for now, folks… looks like we’re in for a few summery sunshine days so expect lots of happy pics in my next post!
