I have taken far too many photos since my last update on Christmas, so have reigned myself in and held over everything post-2014 for an extra update later this week, so that the next one will have a fresh focus on 2015.
You’ve probably heard the standard Capetonian grumble by now that one of the worst things about December in Cape Town is that everyone and his aunt comes down to enjoy the glorious weather, so locals experience a price jolt and all their favourite places are packed. Luckily, this isn’t all bad news as it’s often your beloved family or friends who are part of the visiting crowd. That’s why we were ever so so pleased to hear that two of our former colleagues and one of my schoolmates who I’ve known for over two decades would be on our shores after Christmas, as it meant we could plan a few fun catch-up visits – over the weekend and evenings no less, as I was working from home throughout the silly season.
But I won’t dwell on that. Without further ado, I present to you…
Saturday, 27 December 2014: Jamaica Me Crazy with the Joburg friends
Sunday, 28 December: Chilli con carne dogs and toffee shakes
Monday, 29 December 2014: post-work beach visits
Tuesday, 30 December 2014: Pamper party!
That’s all for now, folks! Chapter closed on 2014, next blog post to follow sooner than the usual weekly wait, all about ringing in 2015.
