This past week has been filled with time-taking-up things, but you know what they say – you always make time for the things you love. And so, here’s my weekly blog post! Last Saturday we decided to get back into our hiking ways (click here if you don’t remember we have actually been bitten by the ‘get active outdoors’ bug before). And the best way to do it? Well, we could have joined my lovely new colleagues, who were doing a 6am sunrise scramble up Lion’s Head… but we’ve ticked Lion’s Head off our list and the thought of sleeping in held too much appeal. So instead we started the day with a long breakfast, then drove to Constantia for an adventure – we walked from Cecelia Forest into Kirstenbosch Gardens, to see if we could sneak on to the Boomslang ‘tree canopy’ walkway my former minion blogged about a few months ago. And sneak in we did! Once you’re in Kirstenbosch, no-one checks your ticket (shhh!) The hike was about 4km in total and just enough to get the blood pumping.
But it seems despite feeling like we were glowing with good health we actually overdid it all on Saturday, with just too much weekend packed in to one day… so of course my immune system fought back and on Sunday I woke with (another) awful head cold. Instead of feeling sorry for myself we decided on an easy day, the highlight of which was getting Husband to demonstrate how to eat a Mochachos burger (again – click here for a reminder of his first demonstration). But enough of my rambling and on with what you’re actually here for – the photos!

Bonus – the fun didn’t end there! Here are a few snaps from events I attended during the week:

That’s all, folks! Still a bit sneezy so not joining my Impi challenge-participating colleagues on Sunday. Instead planning a relaxed, no-stress weekend. Enjoy yours! 🙂
