Helloooooo, blog reader! Why yes, we are indeed at the outer edge of another weekend. The past week’s highlights are below, plus I have a new treat in store for you – Husband has started a Zomato account, so you can read up on his thoughts of our meals out – don’t just rely on my photos.
Click here to see his first few reviews, all from the past week, and scroll down below to see some of my favourite sights…
Friday, 10 April 2015: Sunrise and burger specials
We left the house early enough to catch the sunrise last Friday. Tis a very long road indeed to work. Roughly 17km one way.
My chocolate shake at Plur Cafe, just down the road from home last Friday, when I finally reached home ground again.
Husband even looks well rested against this beachy decor – he’d been in bed with a migraine all day, poor thing. His burger with mushroom sauce soon perked him up, though.
Saturday, 11 April 2015: Breakfast at Signal Gun, tree planting and lupper at Sticky Fingers
A foam heart with halo things at the Ke Monate restaurant at Signal Gun along the Durbanville wine route. Couldn’t start the day without it.
Here is Husband with his Coke, at last. The large tree behind him was dressed in all sorts of fabric.
Poor Husband, sitting and waiting for his breakfast to arrive. Took almost an hour. Luckily the setting really was something to look at and distract us.
See? One tiny section of the Signal Gun…
Dappled sunlight and all. Boom.
Finally there was food! This was my healthy option – plain yoghurt, honey, lots of fresh fruit and granola under it all
Husband had the’ladies poached’ – basically eggs ben on hash browns with the hollandaise in a side dish, to smear on as you wish.
Look who we found, while wandering around our local Stark Ayres nursery! The eagle owl who’d take up residence at West Coast Village the week before!
Husband explaining something (probably about the new tree) to Bertie.
Bertie was Very Interested in the whole tree planting process. We now have a young Natal Fig smack bang in our back garden, yay!
My coffee shake at Sticky Fingers, Obz. The waiter wanted me to try a fancier option, like the Ferrero Rocher concoction, clearly not understanding my love of all things java ( Ahem, apart from java script. Am not a coder, as I learned in previous day job).
Husband enjoyed his craft beer at Sticky Fingers
My bacon cheese fries. An enormous portion, and the bacon had a sweet marinade of sorts. Actually couldn’t finish, even with Husband’s help. Gave my doggy box to the car guard.
Husband tucking into the Man vs Food ‘from hell’ supposedly hot burger. He raised an eyebrow and wolfed it down.
Sunday, 12 April 2015: More gardening, more breakfast, and a funny Bassie
Yay, a little side biscuit with my Sunday morning breakfast! This was at Lisa’s, at Stodel’s Garden Centre near Royal Ascot
Husband had this Dutch Uitsmuijter breakfast.
I had this very large croissant, filled with apricot jam and grated cheese.
The table has a tail! Oh wait, that’s Bassie hiding from the camera. Funny child.
Tuesday, 14 April 2015: Rainy sunrise and office cupcakes
Another sunrise on the way to work, this time in the rain.
Who ever said pink and red don’t mix well clearly did not try these little delights from Woolies.
Thursday, 16 April 2015: Fireplace tester
Bertie and his dad discussing the fire. We used the fireplace for the first time in this house during a nasty bout of loadshedding while a chilly wind blew. T’was marvelous. Warm and bright and toasty.
As seen with the flash on the camera.
That’s all, folks! Feels like winter gave us an early lick last week, here’s hoping for a final touch of summer over the next few days!
