Family fishy lunch, best beach ice cream and conferences at the aquarium

Is it just me or is time really going faster? Can’t believe we’re almost at the end of March already. A quarter of the way through 2015. Wasn’t Christmas just a few days ago? No? I guess I can always scroll through my past weekly updates to see that’s not the case. Speaking of scrolling through, I hope you enjoy scrolling through my highlights of the past week…

Friday, 13 March 2015: Best sunset yet

Everyone and their dog posted their sunset photos last Friday after I'd finished updating the blog for the week. I held this pic over for your viewing pleasure today, as the skies look rather dull and dreary in contrast

While walking through the nursery with dad-in-law and co, I spotted this mirror. So pretty. It's price? Not so pretty, at R435. I love it though.

Have you ever actually been inside a clothing factory? It's fascinating to see exactly how seemingly simple items are put together. Row and rows and rows of machinists at work
